Returns are for EIC’s All-Cap Value (“ACV”) Composite, which includes fully discretionary, non-wrap accounts presented as supplemental information to a GIPS® Composite Report that is considered an integral part of the above presentations. ACV returns are presented both gross and net of management fees. However, for the period January 1, 1989, through July 1, 1995, wrap fee accounts are included in the composite. Gross returns for wrap accounts are stated gross of all fees and brokerage firm wrap fees, while net returns have been reduced by all fees and brokerage firm wrap fees, which include trading costs, portfolio management fees, custody and other administrative fees. ACV strategy inception: January 1, 1986. Upside and Downside Capture are the measures of performance in up and down markets relative to the benchmark index (Russell 3000 Value Index) over the period January 1, 1986 through December 31, 2020. The higher the upside capture, the better the performance in a rising market. Conversely, the lower the downside capture, the better the performance in a declining market. The narrower range of returns relative to the stated index is the result of a lower standard deviation, which is a statistical measure describing the degree of variability around an average. Standard deviations for the rolling 5-year periods were: EIC ACV (gross): +/-4.0 %; EIC ACV (net): +/-3.9%, Russell 3000® Value Index: +/-6.8%. Growth of $100,000 assumes that the amount invested on January 1, 1986 grows by monthly reinvesting in EIC’s strategy (or the index) through December 31, 2020. Indexes are unmanaged, do not incur management fees, costs and expenses, and cannot be invested in directly. All returns include reinvestment of dividends and interest. Past performance is not indicative of future results.
