* Definitions

NFI-ODCE The NCREIF Fund Index — Open-end Diversified Core Equity (NFI-ODCE) consists of private real estate equity funds that meet certain criteria with respect to such things as leverage (less than 35%), operations (at least 75% invested in properties that are 75% or more leased), sector and geographic diversification, and investment in core real estate (at least 75% in office, industrial, apartment and retail properties).

Correlation is a statistic that measures the extent to which two asset classes (or securities) move in relation to each other. Two asset classes that have a high correlation move in the same direction as markets rise and fall. Two asset classes with negative or inverse correlation move in opposite directions as markets rise and fall. The closer the correlation statistic between two asset classes is to zero, the more independently the asset classes move with respect to each other.

One cannot invest directly in an index.
