Notes:

  1. All investment return information is calculated by BNY Mellon Asset Servicing. Returns are presented net of management fees andInvest529 administrative fees. Returns for periods greater than one year are annualized.
  2. The Invest529 Total International Stock Index Portfolio uses the Vanguard Total International Stock Index Fund (Institutional Shares) as the underlying investment vehicle. This means that the Invest529 Portfolio invests in and owns shares of the underlying Vanguard Fund. Invest529 Program investors own shares of the Invest529 Portfolio; they do not directly own shares of the underlying Vanguard Fund
  3. The Fund Benchmark is a custom benchmark that provides for the comparison of Fund performance results to an appropriate strategic benchmark index, in this case the FTSE Global All Cap ex US Index, with an adjustment reflecting the Invest529 administrative fee for the Fund.
  4. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Please refer to the Invest529 Program Description and the underlying Vanguard Fund prospectus before making any investment decision.
