Performance data is based on the firm’s composite for this strategy. Past performance does not guarantee future results and future performance may be lower or higher than the performance presented, including the possibility of loss of principal.  Composite returns for one year or greater are annualized.

Returns are presented both gross and net of management fees and reflect the reinvestment of dividends and other earnings.  Gross of fee returns are calculated gross of management and custodial fees and net of transaction costs.  Net of fee returns are calculated net of management fees and transaction costs.  Net of fee returns were calculated by deducting the actual annual client fees, pro-rated on a quarterly basis. The composite was created in April 2008 and consists of non-taxable institutional accounts managed in a “Concentrated” style with a minimum portfolio size of $1,000,000. A complete list of composite descriptions is available upon request by emailing Policies for valuing portfolios, calculating performance, and preparing compliant presentations are available upon request.

Portfolio characteristics, top ten holdings, sector allocation and market capitalization are based on a representative portfolio which is an account in the composite that we believe most closely reflects current portfolio management style for this strategy. Performance is not a consideration in the selection of the representative portfolio.  The information of the representative portfolio shown may differ from that of the composite.  The top ten holdings identified and described do not represent all securities purchased, sold, or recommended for clients in the composite and no assumption should be made that such securities or future recommendations were or will be profitable in the future.  Portfolio holdings are subject to change without notice. A complete list of holdings for previous 12 months is available upon request.
