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. Characteristics use Weighted Harmonic Average effective as of 6/30/17.
