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.

SMID Hybrid Growth Separate Account Composite contains fully discretionary accounts invested primarily in small cap and mid-cap common stock of U.S. companies. Under normal market conditions, most of the securities purchased for this composite have market capitalizations equal to or less than the largest company contained within the Russell 2500® Growth Index at the time the security was initially purchased by accounts in the composite and are securities of companies which appear to have near term catalysts for growth in addition to a consistent long term growth potential. 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 2500® Growth Index. Since construction of this portfolio is bottom-up and industry and sector exposure can vary greatly from that of the Russell 2500® Growth Index, we expect significant variances in returns.
