** Results shown for the year 2011 represent partial period performance from September 1, 2011 through December 31, 2011.

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.
