Department of Water and Power Employees’ Retirement Plan (the “Plan”)

Historically, real estate has provided stable, long term income returns that comprise a significant portion of total return [e.g., the NCREIF Property Index (“NPI”) income return comprises more than 80% of the total NPI return since inception].
