Disclosed total firm assets represent the total market value of all discretionary and nondiscretionary, fee-paying and non-fee-paying assets under the Firm's management. Diversified Large Cap Value Equity Composite (the "Composite") Inception date: April 1, 1999. Creation date is April 1, 1999. The Composite includes all fully discretionary, actively managed accounts with no minimum market value requirement and no investment restrictions. The composite is primarily invested in large capitalization U.S. common stocks with Price-to-Earnings ratios below the 40th percentile or Price-to-Book ratios below the 25th quartile, favorable change in share issuance, and attractive price momentum. The portfolios typically hold approximately 150 - 250 securities. A non fee-paying account was the sole account in the composite from 1999-2005. As of June 30, 2019, non fee-paying account represented less than 1% of composite assets. The Russell 1000 Value Index measures companies from the Russell 1000 Index that exhibit lower price to book and price to earnings ratios and lower forecasted growth values. The S&P 500 is a broad measure of U.S. domestic large cap stocks. The 500 stocks in this capitalization-weighted index are chosen based on industry representation, liquidity, and stability. Preliminary data, if so noted, reflects unreconciled data for the most recent reporting period. Portfolios are valued daily on a trade date basis and include dividends and interest as well as all realized and unrealized capital gains and losses. Return calculations at the portfolio level are time-weighted to account for periodic contributions and withdrawals. Performance results are calculated on a before tax, total return basis. Prior to July 1, 2007, portfolios were included in the Composite beginning with the first full quarter of performance through the last full quarter of performance. After July 1, 2007, portfolios are included in the Composite beginning with the first full month of performance through the last full month of performance. Composite returns are reported on quarterly basis. The Composite returns consist of size-weighted portfolio returns using beginning of period values to weight the portfolio returns. Monthly linking of interim performance results is used to calculate quarterly and annual returns. Composite's valuations and returns are computed in U.S. Dollars ("USD"). The results are presented in USD or in other currencies (to accommodate overseas investors), the latter by converting monthly USD returns into other currency returns using the appropriate currency exchange rate returns. Gross returns reflect the deduction of trading expenses. Net of fee returns reflect the deduction of trading expenses and the highest investment management fees charged within the composite membership as stated in the fee schedule below. Composite dispersion is calculated using the asset-weighted standard deviation method for all portfolios that were in the Composite for the entire year. Composite dispersion is not presented for periods with five or fewer portfolios. The number of accounts and market values are as of the end of the period. The three-year annualized standard deviation measures the variability of the composite and the benchmark returns over the preceding 36-month period. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
