    *Data presented is with real capital, unaudited and subject to change

     

    *Performance is net of management fees (SmartDividend™ Strategy 1.00%, SmartDividend™ Low Volatility 1.00% and SmartDividend™ Annuity 0.50% per annum). Performance assumes that all income, including dividends was reinvested in the Strategies, but does not reflect the effects of taxation, which would reduce the performance to taxable investors.

     

    *The S&P500 and the Russell 1000 Value are well known, unmanaged, broad based stock market indices. In addition, the Goldman Sachs Rising Dividend Growth Fund (GSRAX), Vanguard Dividend Appreciation (VIG) and ProShares Russell 2000 Dividend Growers (SMDV) are well known publicly traded vehicles. The Fund has not restricted the selection of securities to those comprising these indices and, accordingly, the Fund's performance shown herein may not be comparable with these indices. Performance for the indices assumes that all income, including dividends was reinvested. These indices are included to show general market movement during the periods indicated and should not be construed as comparable to the securities portfolio of the Fund.
