Mid Cap Growth Composite contains fully discretionary accounts and pooled investment vehicles invested primarily in mid cap common stock of U.S. companies. Under normal market conditions, most of the securities purchased for this composite have market capitalizations between $1.0 billion and the market capitalization of the largest company in the Russell Midcap® Index at the time the security was initially purchased by accounts in the composite which appear to have clear indicators of future earnings growth or that appear to demonstrate other potential for growth of capital. 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..
