The gross performance results presented do not reflect the deduction of investment advisory fees and returns will be reduced by such advisory fees and other contractual expenses as described in the individual contract and Form ADV Part 2A.
Net performance results reflect the deduction of actual management fees charged to the accounts in the composite, adjusted for performance-based fees where applicable. Actual advisory fees may vary among clients invested in the strategy shown.
