Logan Circle has been independently verified for the periods November 1, 2007 to December 31, 2017.

The Enhanced Cash composite has been examined for the periods June 1, 2012 to December 31, 2017. Verification does not ensure the accuracy of any specific composite presentation. The verification and performance examination reports are available upon request.

The Enhanced Cash strategy seeks to preserve principal while generating higher returns than money market funds. The target duration for the Enhanced Cash strategy is 1.25 years or less and the investments consist of government, agencies, corporate, mortgage and asset-backed sectors in the investment grade universe. The Enhanced Cash composite includes all fee-paying portfolios equal to or over $20 million, managed on a discretionary basis according to the applicable composite strategy, except as otherwise excluded herein. The Firm maintains a complete list and description of composites which are available upon request. Policies for valuing portfolios, calculating performance and preparing compliant presentations are available upon request.

The performance benchmark for the Enhanced Cash composite is the Bloomberg Barclays Treasury 9-12 Month Index, which is a component of the Bloomberg Barclays Short Treasury Index which includes publicly issued, aged U.S. Treasury Bills, notes and bonds with a remaining maturity from one month up to (but not including) 12 months and excludes zero coupon strips. It is not possible to invest directly in an unmanaged index. All index returns presented are provided to represent the investment environment existing during the time periods shown and will not be covered by the future report of independent verifiers. For comparison purposes, the indices are fully invested and include the reinvestment of income. The returns for the indices do not include any transaction costs, management fees or other costs.

Returns are based on fully discretionary accounts under management and may include terminated accounts. The dispersion of annual returns is measured by the standard deviation among asset-weighted portfolio returns represented within the composite for the full year. Dispersion is not calculated for composites with five or fewer accounts for the whole period.

Performance returns are presented gross and net of fees, include the reinvestment of all income and are calculated in U.S. dollars. Dividend income has been recorded net of all applicable foreign withholding taxes. Returns calculated gross of fees do not reflect the deduction of our investment management fees. Individual client returns will be reduced by investment management fees and other expenses that the account may incur. The investment management fee schedule for the Enhanced Cash strategy is 0.15% on the first $50 million, 0.125% on amounts from $50 million to $100 million and 0.10% on the remaining amount. Net returns have been calculated by reducing the monthly gross returns by the highest stated ADV fee of 0.15%. Fees have a compounding effect on cumulative results. Investment management fees are described in greater detail in Part 2A of the Firm’s Form ADV. Actual investment management fees incurred by clients may vary.

Past performance is not indicative of future results. The information presented is only available for institutional client use and is presented for use only as a one-on-one presentation.

1 Past performance is not indicative of future results. Net of fee returns reflect the deduction of investment advisory fees and are calculated in the same manner as gross of fee returns. Net of fee returns are calculated using the highest fee rate disclosed in the Firm’s ADV. Fees for separate accounts may be negotiable depending upon asset size and type of account. The performance benchmark for the Logan Circle Cash Plus Fixed Income composite is the Citigroup 6-month Treasury Bill, which tracks the return of one U.S. six month Treasury Bill until maturity, and is presented for discussion purposes only. The benchmark does not reflect holdings in all sectors targeted within the Cash Plus strategy. For additional benchmark disclosures please see the full GIPS disclosures on the following page.

2 “N/A” is an indication that the information is not statistically meaningful due to an insufficient number of portfolios (five or fewer) in the composite for the entire year. Standard deviation is only presented for accounts managed for a full calendar year.

3 The three-year annualized standard deviation measures the variability of the composite and the benchmark returns over the preceding 36 month period. The standard deviation is not presented for 1996 through 2010 because it is not required for periods prior to 2011. It is also not presented for quarter-ends.

4 Prior to November 1, 2008 the investment team was part of Bear Stearns Asset Management and therefore, the percentage of Firm assets is not available for periods prior to that date.
