The Universal Signal composite includes all similarly managed discretionary portfolios that invest in at least a 90% target allocation to the Universal Signal model portfolio, a balanced portfolio comprised of ETFs representing domestic and international equities with a focus on dividends, fixed income diversified across several income sectors, precious metals and a cash reserves position. Portfolios typically have 10 different ETF holdings in addition to cash reserves. Fully discretionary accounts are added to the composite on the first day of the month following the date of their full investment. Accounts are removed from the composite at the month end prior to their account change of status. The composite includes taxable and nontaxable discretionary accounts with no restrictions and meet the minimum asset size requirement of $50,000 (as of November 1, 2008) for inclusion. The Universal Signal Composite was created in November 2008. The firm maintains a list of composite descriptions, which is available upon request. Past performance is not indicative of future results. Valuations are computed and stated in US dollars. Performance shown represents total returns that include income, realized and unrealized gains and losses. Gross of Fee returns are presented before the deduction of management fees. The composite includes bundled fee portfolios that pay a fee based on a percentage of assets under management. This fee includes investment management, trading costs, portfolio monitoring, consulting services, and custody services. Gross returns for bundled fee portfolios are shown before the deduction of the entire bundled fee, and are shown as supplemental information. Gross returns for non-bundled fee portfolios have been reduced by transaction costs. Net of Fee performance returns are reduced by actual management fees and bundled fees for applicable portfolios. Annual advisory fees are calculated as a percentage of assets under management according to the following schedule: 1.50% on the first $500,000 of assets under management; 1.25 % on assets between $500,000 – $2,000,000; 1.00 % on assets between $2,000,000 – $5,000,000; 0.75% on assets over $5,000,000, although fees may be negotiated or waived in certain circumstances. Internal dispersion is calculated using the asset-weighted standard deviation of all portfolios that were included in the composite for an entire year, net of fees. The 3-Year Standard Deviation represents the annualized standard deviation of actual composite and benchmark returns, using the rolling 36-months ended each year-end. Past performance is not indicative of future results.
