Investors should carefully consider their own investment goals, risk tolerance and liquidity needs before making an investment decision.

The Funds’ offering and disclosure documents include a complete summary of all fees, expenses, financial highlights, investment objectives and strategies, and risks, and should be carefully reviewed before investing.

Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate, so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher.

When Funds are marketed to institutional clients by our Defined Contribution Investment Only (DCIO) team, the Funds are offered by ICMA-RC Services, LLC (RC Services), an SEC registered broker-dealer and FINRA member firm.

1 Vantagepoint Funds invest in a single VT III Vantagepoint Fund (VT III Funds). Vantagepoint Funds and VT III Funds are collective investment trust funds (CITs) established and maintained by VantageTrust Company, LLC (VTC), a wholly owned subsidiary of ICMA-RC, a New Hampshire non-depository trust company, and the sole trustee of these CITs. Eligible retirement plans may invest in the Vantagepoint Funds, which are funds of VantageTrust. ICMA-RC’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Vantagepoint Investment Advisers, LLC (VIA), provides investment advisory and management services to VTC with respect to the Vantagepoint Funds and VT III Funds. The Vantagepoint Funds and certain VT III Funds invest in other funds managed and administered by ICMA-RC or VIA. ICMA-RC and VIA receive asset-based fees from such underlying funds in addition to the asset-based fees it received from the Vantagepoint and VT III Funds. Please see VIA’s Form ADV, available at www.adviserinfo.sec.gov, for more information.

2 Each Vantagepoint Fund invests in a VT III Vantagepoint Fund that has the same investment objective and strategies. Prior to October 2016, each Vantagepoint Fund invested in a registered Vantagepoint Fund mutual fund that had the same investment objective and strategies. In October 2016, the Vantagepoint Fund mutual funds were liquidated and the assets were transferred to the VT III Vantagepoint Funds. In the event that a subadviser to the VT III Vantagepoint Funds was also a subadviser to the Vantagepoint Fund that preceded it, the average subadviser tenure with the VT III Vantagepoint Funds is calculated using both time periods.
