Composite Definition: Ulland Defensive Growth performance includes all portfolios invested in the Defensive Growth strategy. For performance purposes, portfolios enter the composite on the first day of the first full quarter of management. Portfolios are removed upon completion of the last full quarter of performance.

Performance: Performance quoted is past performance. Past performance is not indicative of future performance. Current performance may be lower or higher than performance shown. Differences in performance versus the indices may be attributable, in part, to differences in the asset make-up of the Defensive Growth strategy vs. the indices. Performance calculations are based on the reinvestment of dividends and gains unless these amounts were paid out to the client. Performance is subject to revision.

Fee: The normal fee schedule for the Defensive Growth strategy is 1.00% on the first $2 million, .75% on amounts greater than $2 million but less than $5 million, and .50% for amounts over $5 million. Individual fee arrangements may vary from this schedule.

Disclaimer: Investing involves risk; principal loss is possible. The principal risks of investing in the strategy include interest rate risk: the value of fixed income securities are impacted by changes in interest rates. Bonds and preferred securities with longer durations tend to be more sensitive and more volatile than securities with shorter durations; bond prices generally fall as interest rates rise. Other risks include call risk, market risk and liquidity risk. The prices of equity securities are sensitive to a wide range of factors, from economic to company-specific news, and can fluctuate repeatedly and unexpectedly, causing an investment to decrease in value. Investors should consider the investment objectives, risk, charges, and expenses of this strategy carefully before investing.
