*Strategy Assets are shown as Supplemental Information as these assets include mutual funds assets managed within the Mid Cap Growth Strategy N.A. - Composite Dispersion information is not statistically meaningful due to an insufficient number of portfolios in the composite for the entire year. Information for the 3-Yr Annualized Standard Deviation is not presented because there is less than 36 months of performance data.

In addition to common stock the composite may also purchase convertible and preferred stock as well as certain Exchange Traded Funds. This composite is actively managed and securities in the composite are frequently purchased and sold by the manager. For comparison purposes the composite is measured against the Russell Midcap® Growth Index.

Prior to September 1, 2011, composite policy required the temporary removal of any account from the composite which incurred a client initiated significant cash inflow or outflow of 10% or more of the value of the net assets of the account in any 30 day period. The temporary removal of such an account occurred at the beginning of the month in which the significant cash flow occurred and the account re-entered the composite at the beginning of the month after the cash flow. This policy was deleted effective September 1, 2011. Additional information regarding the treatment of significant cash flows is available upon request.

The annual composite dispersion is an asset-weighted standard deviation calculated for the accounts in the composite the entire year.
