This is the actual NET performance of our clients utilizing our Super-Diversification Flex Growth Strategy totaling approximately $107.3 million of assets. This is our most utilized strategy (most number of clients). Our Strategy and process has remained consistent over the entire period. Not all Patton Clients with the same strategy experienced the same performance possibly due primarly to generally minor differences in allocations and differences in fees. A very limited number of Patton Clients pay fees from money outside of their portfolio resulting in a higher return. Performance includes the reinvestment of dividends and other earnings. Investors may lose money, and are expected to lose money during significant market declines and other market conditions, in this strategy. The asset allocation of the strategy has been different than the ARC Private Client Index, resulting in differing performance, although the risk profiles of both have been generally similar. During the period being reported the market has been in an upward trend that have been stronger historic averages. No assurance that this type of trend will persist or how we would perform if it did.
