Lipper Ranking Methodology:

Fund ranking calculated quarterly or annually by Lipper Analytical Services of New York. Each fund is ranked within a universe of funds similar in investment objective. Lipper Analytical Services, Inc., is a nationally recognized organization that reports on mutual fund total return performance and calculates fund rankings.

Lipper Inc. rankings are based on fund total returns for the periods shown. Rankings do not take into account sales charges but include reinvestment of dividends and capital gains, if any. The number of funds in each category periodically changes. Multiple share classes of a fund have a common portfolio but impose different expense structures. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

Lipper Large-Cap Core Funds Index invests at least 75% of their equity assets in companies with market capitalizations (on a three-year weighted basis) greater than 300% of their dollar-weighted median market capitalization of the middle 1,000 securities of the S&P SuperComposite 1500 Index. Large-cap core funds have more latitude in the companies in which they invest. These funds typically have an average price-to-earnings ratio, price-to-book ratio, and three-year sales-per-share growth value, compared to the S&P 500 Index.

Comparison based on Lipper Large-Cap Core Funds index. As of 3/31/2022, the Pax Large Cap Fund – Institutional Class ranked 57 out of 610 for 1 year period, ranked 1 out of 532 for 3 year period, ranked 4 out of 496 for 5 year period, and ranked 8 out 488 Since Inception (12/16/2016).

The Morningstar Ratings™ shown are as of 3/31/2022. The Morningstar Rating for funds, or ‘star rating’, is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed end funds, and separate accounts) with at least a three-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product’s monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The Morningstar Rating does not include any adjustments for sales loads. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five- and ten- year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are 100% three-year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating, 40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns, and 50% ten-year rating, 30% five-year rating, 20% three-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the ten-year overall rating formula seems to give the most weight to the ten-year period, the most recent three-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods. ©2021 Morningstar, Inc.
