Communication with clients is ongoing and frequent. In addition to monthly account statements, clients receive a personalized, comprehensive quarterly performance evaluation. The evaluation reviews asset allocation and highlights current and past account performance in light of stated guidelines; it also supplies relevant benchmarks against which the client may further measure performance. In addition, the quarterly evaluation graphs the account's growth since inception and its risk level.
Investment performance will be reviewed at least annually to determine the continued feasibility of achieving the client's investment objectives, as well as the appropriateness of the Investment Philosophy Statement for achieving those objectives.
As each Private Investment Management (PIM®) program account is individually managed, construction and ongoing management of portfolios may vary from those discussed in this Philosophy Statement.
Past performance is not indicative of future results and there is no assurance that any investment strategy will be successful. Asset allocation does not eliminate the risk of fluctuating prices and uncertain returns.
