Composite Performance does not reflect any taxes an investor may incur as a result of capital gains, interest, and income. Withholding taxes may vary according to the investor’s domicile and capital gain exposure. Past performance is not indicative of future results.
Net performance uses the maximum total wrap fee of 3%. The total wrap fee includes all charges for trading costs, portfolio management, custody and other administrative fees. Actual investment advisory fees incurred by clients may vary. Net of fee performance is calculated by reducing the “pure” gross of fee returns by a model fee, applied monthly, representing the maximum total wrap fee.
The U.S. Dollar is the currency used to express performance. Returns reflected the reinvestment of income and other earnings.
The annual composite dispersion presented is equal-weighted standard deviation calculated for the accounts in the composite the entire year. All presented risk metrics are calculated using gross-of-fee performance. For the SMA Composites “pure” gross-of-fee-performance is used. Policies for valuing investments, calculating performance, and preparing compliant presentations are available upon request.
Past performance does not guarantee future results. Different types of investments involve varying degrees of risk, and there can be no assurance that the future performance of any specific investment or investment strategy (including those undertaken or recommended by Pence Capital), will be profitable or equal any historical performance level. All investment strategies have the potential for profit or loss. Investment strategies such as asset allocation, diversification, and rebalancing do not assure or guarantee better performance and cannot eliminate the risk of investment losses. There is no guarantee that a portfolio employing these or any other strategy will outperform a portfolio that does not engage in such strategies. Any target referenced on this document is not a prediction or projection of actual investment results and there can be no assurance that any target will be achieved. Changes in investment strategies, contributions or withdrawals may materially alter the performance of an individual’s portfolio. Economic factors, market conditions, and investment strategies will affect the performance of any portfolio and there are no assurances that it will match or outperform any particular benchmark. Projections, forecasts and estimates referenced on the document are not purely historical in nature and are therefore necessarily speculative and subject to material variation.
Any index performance data appearing or referenced (directly or indirectly) herein has been compiled by the respective copyright holders, trademark holders, or publication/distribution right owners of each index. The indexes generally do not reflect the deduction of transaction and/or custodial charges, or the deduction of an investment-management fee, which would decrease historical performance results. Investors cannot invest directly in an index. Pence Capital makes no warranty, express or implied, for any decision taken by any party in reliance upon such index information.
Except as prohibited by law, and as a condition precedent to accessing this document, each investor agrees to release and hold harmless Pence Capital its members, managers, officers, directors, owners, employees, agents, and affiliates from any and all adverse consequences resulting from any actions or omissions related to this document that are independent of receiving personalized individual advice from Pence Capital.
