2015 Fund Line-up Changes

ANNUAL NOTICES (March 2015)

Our 2015 fund changes vary slightly based on individual plan designs. Earlier this month, emails with letters were sent to each of our 401(k) clients with the specific changes to their particular plan. Please refer to that letter for your specific situation. In general, the following summarizes the fund changes that will be made this May.

Mesirow 3(38) Plans

Mesirow Financial Investment Services is making changes to the fund lineup for plans utilizing their 3(38) services. If you utilize Mesirow 3(38) services for the Basic, Standard or Advanced fund lineups, the changes listed below will occur the week of May 11, 2015. Plans using the Select lineup will not be impacted by these changes.

Funds Being Added

  • T. Rowe Price Personal Strategy Growth Fund
  • T. Rowe Price Personal Strategy Balanced Fund
  • T. Rowe Price Personal Strategy Income Fund

Fund Being Removed

  • Lord Abbett Fundamental Equity Fund will be replaced with the Stock Market Index Fund.
All Other Plans

If you are not utilizing Mesirow 3(38) services for your 401(k) plan, the following fund changes will be taking effect in May.

New Funds Available
Five new funds will be available as of May 1, 2015. These funds will not be automatically added to any plan lineup.

  • T. Rowe Price Personal Strategy Growth Fund
  • T. Rowe Price Personal Strategy Balanced Fund

  • Small Cap Growth Stock Index Fund
  • Small Cap Value Stock Index Fund

Fund Being Removed
The Lord Abbett Fundamental Equity Fund will be replaced by the Franklin Growth Fund (unless otherwise instructed by the plan sponsor) the week of May 18, 2015.

Fund Names Being Changed

In addition to the above changes, we have been notified by the investment managers that the following fund names will be changing in 2015:

  • Effective March 6, 2015, the AllianceBernstein Discovery Value Fund is changing names to the AB Discovery Value Fund.
  • Effective May/June 2015, the Target Small Capitalization Value Portfolio is changing names to Prudential Small-Cap Value Fund.

Again, earlier this month you were sent an email that included a letter informing you about the specific investment changes to your particular plan. The information you received was determined by your plan’s current fund lineup and/or the selection and monitoring service(s) you may or may not utilize through Mesirow Financial’s Fiduciary Partnership Program.

We believe the changes outlined here illustrate our commitment to providing you and your employees with a strong 401(k) plan. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your Mutual of Omaha Retirement Services representative.

Thank you for your continued business!
