Purchases and sales of Mutual Funds (other than for exchanges) shall be made on the date on which the Trustee receives from the Administrator In Good Order all information, documentation and wire transfer of funds (if applicable), necessary to accurately effect such transactions. Exchanges of Mutual Funds pursuant to Participant request shall be processed in accordance with the fund exchange provisions set forth in the Plan Administration Manual.
(4) Amending Section 5, Investment of Trust, to add a new subsection (i), as follows:
(i) Portfolio Advisory Service®.
(i)This section is intended to authorize appointment of an investment manager as contemplated in Section 402(c)(3) of ERISA. The Sponsor may appoint an investment manager, and, pursuant to the agreement in the Schedule titled “Investment Management Agreement”, the Sponsor has so appointed Strategic Advisers with respect to assets held in the individual Plan accounts of participants enrolled in Portfolio Advisory Service®. That appointment extends only to Managed Assets, as defined below. Trustee will implement the addition of Portfolio Advisory Service® on August 17, 2015. In the event the implementation date above is no longer reasonably
practicable, the parties will establish another date for implementation.
(ii)Managed Assets shall be comprised of those assets held in or contributed to the individual plan accounts of eligible Participants (other than Sponsor Stock) from whom the Trustee or its agent has received In Good Order an election to participate in the Portfolio Advisory Service®, and whose participation has not been terminated in accordance with subparagraph (iv). All Participants are eligible for Portfolio Advisory Service®. In order to be eligible for the service, a Participant must have a Plan account balance equal to or greater than an amount as the Trustee and Strategic Advisers may determine in their sole discretion. Participants who hold non-traditional investment options in their Plan account, such as self-directed brokerage assets, are ineligible for the service until such holdings are liquidated.
(iii)Purchases and sales of investment options initiated by Portfolio Advisory Service® shall be governed by the operating guidelines set out in the Schedule titled “Operating Guidelines for Investment Options Exchanges -Portfolio Advisory Service®”.
(iv)For so long as Portfolio Advisory Service® is offered, Strategic Advisers’ authority with respect to Managed Assets shall begin when Fidelity has confirmed receipt of an election In Good Order from an eligible Participant who has elected to participate in the service (and in the case of plans or portions thereof transferring to Fidelity recordkeeping services, at the conclusion of the Participant Recordkeeping Reconciliation Period). Strategic Advisers’ authority with respect to Managed Assets shall end with respect to a Participant when (A) the Participant terminates his or her election to participate in Portfolio Advisory Service®; (B) Managed Assets are withdrawn (through loan, withdrawal or distribution) or otherwise transferred out of the Participant’s account for any reason (but only to the extent of such withdrawal or transfer); (C) the Participant’s account is transferred to another plan; (D) Strategic Advisers receives notice from the Trustee or its agent of a Participant’s death, after the Trustee or its agent has been so notified; (E) Strategic Advisers notifies a Participant that the Participant is no longer eligible for the service, or that it will no longer provide the service to such Participant for any reason; (F) when the Plan’s Named Fiduciary directs Strategic Advisers to discontinue its service to any Participant (whether through termination of Strategic Advisers as investment manager with respect to Portfolio Advisory Service®, or otherwise); or (G) when an affiliate of the Trustee ceases to provide recordkeeping services for the Plan. A Participant’s termination of his or her election to participate in Portfolio Advisory Service® shall be effective immediately after the Trustee confirms receipt of such
election, provided that if confirmation is received after market close and one or more exchange transactions initiated by Strategic Advisers are pending for processing in the nightly cycle for such date, such exchanges shall be processed as of the market close on such date.
(v) The Managed Assets shall be identified on the books and records of the Trust separately from all other assets held by the Trustee under this Agreement. Strategic Advisers shall have the duty and power to direct the Trustee and its affiliates as to the investment of Managed Assets among available investment options, in accordance with governing investment guidelines, but shall have no authority with respect to the exercise of shareholder rights such as voting, or other rights that arise out of the Trust’s ownership of certain securities, such as the right to participate in bankruptcy or other litigation. The Trustee shall follow the direction of Strategic Advisers or its agent regarding the investment and reinvestment of the Managed Assets. The Trustee shall have no authority or responsibility to review, question or countermand any instruction provided by Strategic Advisers to it, unless it has knowledge that by its action or failure to act, it will be participating in or undertaking to conceal a breach of fiduciary duty by Strategic Advisers.
6.The Trustee may execute such documents and powers of attorney as may be necessary to authorize Strategic Advisers or its agents, to exercise the investment management duties of Strategic Advisers.
7.It is acknowledged that the Strategic Advisers may appoint as its agent any entity, including FIIOC that is also used by the Trustee in performing its duties hereunder.
8.Neither the Trustee nor its affiliates performing recordkeeping and administrative services for the Plan shall have any obligation to provide any information concerning an enrolled Participant to Strategic Advisers (including, without limitation, any holdings of such Participant outside of the assets allocated to Portfolio Advisory Service®), provided, however, that the Trustee and such affiliates shall be obligated to notify Strategic Advisers of an event terminating some or all of its management responsibilities for enrolled Participants.
(ix) A Participant may elect to participate in Portfolio Advisory Service® by enrolling via the internet, by completing a paper enrollment form, via telephone, or by other means as agreed to by the Sponsor and the Trustee. After the conclusion of any Participant Recordkeeping Reconciliation Period, exchanges shall be made at the NAV next calculated after a Participant has provided In Good Order all information necessary for the service to determine an appropriate target asset mix and model portfolio, and the receipt of his or her election to participate in
Portfolio Advisory Service® has been confirmed. A Participant may elect to terminate participation in Portfolio Advisory Service® via telephone, the internet, or such other means agreed to by the Sponsor and the Trustee and such termination shall be effective immediately when the Trustee confirms receipt of such instruction, provided that if any exchange transactions are pending at the time the Participant elects to terminate the service, the pending transactions shall be processed at the market close on such date unless the Participant requests cancellation of such transactions. In the absence of such pending transactions, upon completion of unenrollment process of his or her participation in the Portfolio Advisory Service®, a Participant may request exchanges immediately, and such transactions shall be implemented in accordance with the guidelines set forth in the Plan Administration Manual for such investment option. For so long as a Participant participates in Portfolio Advisory Service®, he or she may not make exchanges in his or her account (except for exchanges related to Sponsor Stock).
(x) The Named Fiduciary may direct the Trustee in writing to automatically enroll some or all of the Participants into Portfolio Advisory Service®. If the Named Fiduciary directs the Trustee to automatically enroll any or all of the Participants into Portfolio Advisory Service®, the Trustee shall re-direct contributions to the Plan accounts of such Participants, and shall re-allocate existing account balances of such Participants, among the Plan’s available investment options in accordance with the investment directions provided by Strategic Advisers unless or until the Participant opts out of Portfolio Advisory Service®. Assets held in or contributed to the accounts of a Participant who has been automatically enrolled in the Service pursuant to the Named Fiduciary’s direction shall be Managed Assets as described in (ii) above, subject to investment direction by Strategic Advisers until such time as the Participant opts out of participation in Portfolio Advisory Service® and so notifies the Trustee. Participant direction to opt out of Portfolio Advisory Service® may be made via the telephone, the internet or in such other manner as may be agreed to from time to time between the Named Fiduciary and the Trustee. Upon receipt and processing of a Participant’s election to opt out of Portfolio Advisory Service®, the Trustee shall thereafter invest the Participant’s accounts among the investment options under the Plan in accordance with the Participant’s investment instructions. A Participant’s election to opt out of enrollment in Portfolio Advisory Service® shall be effective immediately after the Trustee confirms receipt of such election, provided that if confirmation is received after market close on a Business Day and one or more exchange transactions initiated by Strategic Advisers are processing in the nightly cycle for such date, such exchanges shall be processed as of the market close of the next Business Day.
(5) Restating Section 11, Resignation, Removal, and Termination Notices, in its entirety, to read as follows:
Section 11. Resignation, Removal, and Termination Notices.
All notices of resignation, removal, or termination under this Agreement must be in writing and mailed to the party to which the notice is being given by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested, to the Sponsor c/o Corporate Benefits Director, One South Main Street, Suite 600, Salt Lake City, Utah, 84111, and to the Trustee c/o Fidelity Workplace Services LLC, PWI Risk & Compliance, 245 Summer Street, V7B, Boston, Massachusetts 02210, or to such other addresses as the parties have notified each other of in the foregoing manner.

Section 23. Investment Management Communications.

The fees for Portfolio Advisory Service® are set forth in the Investment Management Agreement Schedule.
Unless paid by the Sponsor or deducted from the Plan pursuant to alternative, valid direction from the Plan’s Named Fiduciary, the quarterly fees for Portfolio Advisory Service® applicable to each Participant will be calculated, based on a Participant’s daily balances for all days not previously billed, generally on the 25th day (or next available Business Day) of the final month of the Participant statement cycle quarter. The Trustee shall redeem investments in the amount of such fee pro rata from the investment options in the electing Participant’s Plan account on the Business Day following the fee calculation. This amount will be noted on the Participant’s statement. In the event a Participant’s participation in the service is terminated before the end of a quarter, the fee will be prorated based on the number of days the account was managed during the quarter. Failure to deduct fees shall not constitute a fee waiver.
(8) Adding the Schedule titled “Operating Guidelines for Investment Options Exchanges -Portfolio Advisory Service®”, as attached hereto.
(9) Adding the Schedule titled “Operating Management Agreement”, as attached hereto.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the Trustee and the Sponsor have caused this Sixth Amendment to be executed by their duly authorized officers effective as of the day and year first above written.

SCHEDULE - OPERATING GUIDELINES FOR INVESTMENT OPTIONS EXCHANGES - PORTFOLIO ADVISORY SERVICE®
The following operating guidelines shall govern exchanges of investment options for Participants enrolled in Portfolio Advisory Service®. These guidelines are subject to change upon written notice to the Sponsor.
(a) Rebalancing Participant Accounts:
Assets in the Participant’s Plan account are rebalanced on an ongoing basis to ensure alignment with the assigned asset allocation strategy and the current model portfolio. There are two primary types of rebalancing activities:
•Portfolios are rebalanced periodically (generally 3-4 times per year) to account for changes in market valuations, to ensure Participant accounts are properly aligned to their model portfolio allocations.
•Portfolios are also monitored each Business Day to ensure that any Participant directed activities (such as withdrawals or loans) have not caused the Participant account to vary from the assigned market-adjusted model portfolio by more than a drift allowance specified under the Portfolio Advisory Service® .
Rebalance transactions shall be created in the nightly cycle for processing on the following Business Day, and will be reflected in Participant accounts on the day following the rebalance transaction date.
(b) Reallocation of Model Portfolios:
If there is a reallocation of the model portfolio (resulting from review of the Plan’s investment options or a change in the Plan investment option menu), those Participant accounts that vary from the revised model portfolio by more than a drift allowance specified under the Portfolio Advisory Service® shall be flagged for reallocation. Reallocation transactions shall be processed using the same rules as for rebalance transactions.
(c) Changes to Investor Profile:
If a change in model portfolios is required as a result of an annual or ad hoc review of the Participant’s investor profile completed before the close of the New York Stock Exchange (“Market Close”) on a Business Day, the required exchanges shall be processed in that night’s nightly cycle, and reflected in the Participant’s account within the two to three Business Days.
(d) Termination of Service:
If receipt of a Participant’s election to terminate the Portfolio Advisory Service® is confirmed before Market Close, the account will not be flagged for rebalancing or reallocation. If receipt of a Participant’s election to terminate Portfolio Advisory Service® is received while transactions are pending, the pending transactions will proceed as outlined above unless the Participant requests cancellation of such transaction. After the transactions are settled, the termination will be processed pursuant to the language above.

FEES FOR MANAGED ACCOUNT SERVICE
PLAN NAME: Zions Bancorporation Payshelter 401(k) and Employee Stock Ownership Plan
PLAN NUMBER: 29148
Beginning upon the Plan’s enrollment in the Managed Account Service, the annual advisory fee for the Managed Account Service will be assessed based on a percentage of the average daily balance of Managed Assets of enrolled Participants. The advisory fee will be charged to cover ongoing management of the Managed Assets, and related servicing and Participant communication. The fee is payable quarterly in arrears, and will be calculated on the basis of daily Participant balances, generally on the 25th day of the last month of the Participant statement cycle quarter (or the next Business Day if the 25th is not a Business Day).
Unless paid by the Sponsor, the Trustee or its agent will redeem investments in the amount of the net advisory fee directly from enrolled Participants’ Plan accounts on the Business Day following the fee calculation. The amount of the fee deducted from a Participant’s account will be noted on the Participant’s statement.
The annual net advisory fee for the Managed Account Service will be calculated by deducting a Plan Credit Amount (as defined below) from the Plan’s annual gross advisory fee set forth in the table below:
ANNUAL GROSS ADVISORY FEE SCHEDULE
daily account balance
|Less than 20% eligible participant enrollment||Greater than 20% eligible participant enrollment*|
|For the first $100,000 or portion thereof||0.59%||0.54%|
|For the next $100,000 to $250,000, or portion thereof||0.54%||0.44%|
|All additional assets over $250,000||0.39%||0.29%|
*The Gross Advisory fees applicable to plans that exceed 20% enrollment will take effect beginning with the first day of the quarter in which the 20% threshold was exceeded.
Plan Credit Amount and Net Advisory Fee. The purpose of the Plan Credit Amount is to reduce the annual gross advisory fee payable by the Plan by the amount of asset-based fees, if any, Strategic Advisers or its affiliates receive for management of Fidelity Mutual Funds in which Managed Assets are invested, and for other services related to any other investment option offered under the Plan in which Managed Assets are invested.
This Plan Credit Amount will be calculated daily in the following manner: For each investment option in which Managed Assets are invested, an amount will be calculated equal to the sum of (a) the actual underlying investment management fees paid to Strategic Advisers or its affiliates from such investment if it is a Fidelity Mutual Fund (but not other fund expenses such as transfer agency fees); and (b) the servicing or other fees paid to and retained by Strategic Advisers and its affiliates based on assets or Participants in any investment option other than Fidelity Mutual Funds. The resulting amounts for all investments of Managed Assets will be added together to arrive at the Plan Credit Amount. The Plan Credit Amount will be applied (as a percentage) equally across all Participant accounts to arrive at the annual net advisory fee for that Participant. It is expected that the Plan Credit Amount will vary over time, based upon the funds selected for investment of Managed Assets.
In the event a Participant’s participation in the Managed Account Service is terminated before the end of a quarter but such Participant remains enrolled in the Plan, the gross advisory fee applicable to that quarter will be prorated based on the number of days the account was managed during the quarter, and such Participant’s net advisory fees for the pro-rated quarter will be calculated using the Plan Credit Amount applicable to the prior quarter.
If, prior to the end of a billing quarter, either, (a) a Participant’s participation in the Managed Account Service is terminated simultaneously with that Participant’s enrollment in the Plan, or (b) the Plan terminates the Managed Account Service in its entirety, then the gross advisory fee applicable to that quarter will be prorated based on the number of days the account was managed during the quarter. In such cases, a Participant’s gross advisory fees for the pro-rated quarter will be reduced by a credit amount equal to (a) the actual underlying investment management fees paid to Strategic Advisers or its affiliates from investments in such Participant’s account for Fidelity Mutual Funds (but not other fund expenses such as transfer agency fees); and (b) the servicing or other fees paid to and retained by Strategic Advisers and its affiliates based on assets from such Participant’s account invested in any investment option other than Fidelity Mutual Funds.
As noted above, the Plan’s annual gross advisory fee has been determined based on the composition of the Plan’s available investment options. The Plan’s annual gross advisory fee has been set at a level that, when reduced by the Plan Credit Amount, should result in Participants paying approximately the annual target net fee shown below. Note that, because the Plan Credit Amount will vary over time, the actual amount of net advisory fee paid by any Participant will vary based upon, among other things, the funds selected for investment by the Service and the number and asset allocations of Participants enrolled in the Plan. As a result, a Participant’s net advisory fee may be higher or lower than the target net advisory shown in the table below:
TARGET ANNUAL NET ADVISORY FEE SCHEDULE
daily account balance
Less than 20% eligible participant enrollment
|Greater than 20% eligible participant enrollment|
|For the first $100,000 or portion thereof||0.50%||0.45%|
|For the next $100,000 to $250,000, or portion thereof||0.45%||0.35%|
|All additional assets over $250,000||0.30%||0.20%|
As noted above, the Plan Credit Amount and annual net advisory fee will vary over time. However, given the investment options available in the Plan as of the date of this Agreement and expected rates of enrollment in the Service, Strategic Advisers anticipates that the annual net advisory fees paid by any Participant in the Plan will fall within the ranges shown below.
TARGET RANGE OF ANNUAL NET ADVISORY FEES
daily account balance
|Less than 20% eligible participant enrollment||Greater than 20% eligible participant enrollment|
|For the first $100,000 or portion thereof||0.59% -0.35%||0.54% -0.30%|
|For the next $100,000 to $250,000, or portion thereof||0.54% -0.30%||0.44% -0.20%|
|All additional assets over $250,000||0.39% -0.15%||0.29% -0.05%|
In rare circumstances, due to the variable nature of the Plan Credit Amount, the net advisory fee payable by Participants may fall outside of the ranges shown above.
The annual net advisory fee shall be charged in addition to any applicable management fees, purchase fee, short-term trading fee, or similar fee payable to the applicable mutual fund, or any fee paid to Strategic Advisers or its affiliates for services rendered to the Plan (including trustee or recordkeeping services) or to the investment options offered under the Plan.
Note: Should the Sponsor or Authorizing Party modify the investment options available through the Plan, Strategic Advisers shall have the right to modify this pricing schedule upon sixty (60) days’ notice.
From time to time, Strategic Advisers may provide a pricing incentive to encourage enrollment in the service. Unless otherwise specified, the pricing incentives will either allow eligible Plan participants who are not enrolled in the service to have the Service free of Advisory Fees for a stated period of time, or will allow eligible participants who are not enrolled in the service a stated discount from the plan’s Gross
Advisory fee during a specified period. The Authorizing Party will receive prior notice of any pricing incentive. In the unlikely event that the Plan Credit Amount exceeds the Gross Advisory Fees for any quarter in which a pricing incentive is in effect, the excess shall be added to the Plan Credit Amount for the following quarter. In such event, no new pricing incentives will be initiated until any previously unused Plan Credit Amount has been used to offset Gross Advisory Fees. In the event that there is unused Plan Credit Amounts for three successive quarters, the amount shall be converted to a Service Credit, which may be applied exclusively for any Plan-related service obtained by the Plan from Strategic Advisers or any Strategic Advisers affiliate that would otherwise be payable under the terms of existing agreements (other than non-SAI investment management fees, expenses already deducted from Participant accounts, or expenses incorporated into a mil rate). The Service Credit will be credited to a non-interest bearing hypothetical account in respect of the Plan, and will expire twelve months after the end of the quarter in which it was credited.
INVESTMENT GUIDELINES FOR MANAGED ACCOUNT SERVICE
Strategic Advisers shall manage Managed Assets in an enrolled Participant’s Plan account by selecting from among the investment options available to enrolled Participants in order to provide diversification appropriate for the enrolled Participant.
Strategic Advisers will allocate the Participant’s portfolio across various asset classes to try to achieve the long-term goal of seeking an appropriate level of returns for a given level of risk. Strategic Advisers shall assign the Participant to an appropriate asset mix based on the appropriate risk/reward trade-offs for the Participant. To determine the appropriate mix, Strategic Advisers will consider the Participant’s date of birth, assumed retirement age, plan account balance, and other personal information provided by the record keeper or by the Participant directly through a series of questions or through the incorporation of available online information. This profile information may include the Participant’s risk preferences, investment experience, current and future income, and potential withdrawal needs depending on availability of such information and the willingness of the participant to provide such information. It may also include information about assets held by the participant in other accounts (including amounts held in other plans or accounts serviced by its affiliates) and the asset allocation of these accounts. Strategic Advisers will base its proposed asset mix based on the amount of information provided by the Participant, but shall not require information from the Participant beyond (i) correct date of birth information for each plan Participant, (ii) designating the expected retirement age for each Participant.
Strategic Advisers shall design model portfolios for the plan by selecting a combination of available investment options that track the risk and diversification attributes of the targeted asset allocation within an appropriate range. Based on the information outlined above, Strategic Advisers will assign the Participant to one of the model portfolios.
Participant asset allocation assignments will be reviewed annually, and Participants may be reassigned to an asset allocation that matches his or her updated profile. In addition, a Participant may be reassigned to an appropriate asset allocation and portfolio any time the Participant informs Strategic Advisers of a change to his or her profile. Unless provided by the Participant, Authorizing Party shall be responsible for providing (i) correct date of birth information for each plan Participant, (ii) designating the expected retirement age for each Participant
Authorizing Party shall be responsible for providing correct date of birth information for each Participant. In addition, if the Participant does not provide information designating their expected retirement date, the Authorizing Party will either (i) provide a default retirement date to be used in scoring Participants or (ii) direct Strategic Advisers to use the default retirement date designated by the Social Security Administration for such Participant.
Strategic Advisers shall invest eligible amounts held in, or contributed to, the accounts of enrolled Participants in accordance with the model portfolio, as it may be adjusted from time to time for market fluctuation, provided that Strategic Advisers shall not manage amounts held in Company Stock (if applicable), or contributions required to be invested in Company Stock, except to counterbalance against such Company Stock as described below. Enrolled Participant accounts may be rebalanced periodically to align their accounts to their assigned model portfolio, or if their
accounts drift materially from the market-adjusted model portfolio designated by Strategic Advisers. Strategic Advisers may change the model portfolios as appropriate for changes in the Plan’s investment options, market performance or economic conditions.
Strategic Advisers shall have no independent obligation under this Agreement to value assets under its management, but shall instead rely upon valuations provided by the Trustee or its agent, or an external money manager, if applicable.
Special Guidelines for Company Stock Holdings (if applicable): Strategic Advisers will not invest Managed Assets in Company Stock. An enrolled Participant whose Plan account is invested in Company Stock will be offered the choice whether to (i) have Strategic Advisers ignore such holdings in assigning an asset allocation to the Participant or (ii) assign an asset allocation that attempts to offset the risk characteristics associated with an investment in a security. If a Participant elects to offset the Company Stock holdings, Strategic Advisers will assign the Participant to a portfolio that attempts to account for their holdings in Company Stock, based on the Participant’s level of Company Stock holdings in his or her Plan account. If a Participant fails to direct Strategic Advisers as to whether to offset or ignore his or her Company Stock positions, the Authorizing Party hereby directs Strategic Advisers to assign the Participant into a portfolio that attempts to offset the risk characteristics of the Participant’s Company Stock position.
Strategic Advisers shall not make decisions with respect to the exercise of any rights accruing to investment options, including without limitation, shareholder rights to vote proxies or tender or exchange shares, or rights arising out of bankruptcy or litigation. Decisions with respect to the exercise of any such rights shall be made in accordance with the provisions of the Trust Agreement, and Strategic Advisers shall not be required to take such matters into account in making its investment decisions.
Universe: Managed Assets of enrolled Participants may be invested in any investment options available for new investment by enrolled Participants other than assets held in or investment options available in self-directed brokerage accounts (and Company Stock, if applicable) subject to the restrictions described below.
Use of Participant Data: To the extent a Participant is enrolled in more than one account within the Managed Account Service, Strategic Advisers will share such Participant data across accounts and Plans. Strategic Advisers will use such Participant’s data provided in connection with one account for updating or management purposes in other accounts of such Participant that are also managed by the Managed Account Service.
Restrictions: Managed Assets of enrolled Participants will not be invested in any investment option that is closed to new investment by eligible Participants. Certain investments – such as “investment strategy options” – may be excluded from the model portfolio construction process. The Authorizing Party shall have the right to impose reasonable restrictions upon Strategic Advisers with respect to investment management, other than those set out here, provided that it shall first propose such restrictions in writing to Strategic Advisers, and provided that Strategic Advisers shall have thirty (30) Business Days to determine whether such restriction is reasonable.
With respect to any stable value option or custom fund option within a plan line-up, Strategic Advisers will use such stable value option in constructing its portfolios if information regarding the composition of such stable value option is made available to Strategic Advisers by the Authorizing
Party on an annual basis. If such information regarding the composition of the stable value option is not made available to Strategic Advisers, Strategic Advisers will look for other cash equivalent funds within the plan line-up. If none are available, Strategic Advisers will be unable to create appropriate models for the Plan. The plan Fiduciary shall be responsible for obtaining the approval of the stable value option or custom fund provider prior to the implementation of the Service.
The Managed Account Service only considers Fidelity Mutual Funds that have been included in the investment menu chosen by the plan sponsor (or other responsible plan fiduciary) to be offered to plan participants and beneficiaries. To the extent that the Managed Account Service includes one or more Fidelity Mutual Funds in model portfolios utilized by Plan participants, Strategic Advisers believes such fund or funds are appropriate for the Plan because each such fund is an investment option available in the Plan that, in combination with other available investment options in the model portfolio, provide a resulting portfolio that tracks the risk and diversification attributes of the targeted asset allocation. Strategic Advisers constructs and manages each model portfolio by applying a quantitative investment methodology. In constructing model portfolios, Strategic Advisers employs a process that is independent with respect to fund family or investment manager.
