Past Performance is not a guarantee of future results. There is no guarantee that the Strategy’s objectives will be met. Risk Definition: Beta is a measure of the tendency of securities to move with the market as a whole. A beta of 1 indicates that the security's price will move with the market. A beta less than 1 indicates the security tends to be less volatile than the market, while a beta greater than 1 indicates the security is more volatile than the market.


Quartz Partners Investment Management (“Quartz”) puts forth its best effort to achieve the objectives of its programs. However, there is no guarantee that the objectives will be achieved. An Account(s)' return and principal will fluctuate so that the Account(s), when redeemed, may be worth more or less than the amount in the Account(s) at or subsequent to the effective date of the Investment Management Agreement. Current performance may be higher or lower than the performance data quoted. Quartz strategies may involve above-average portfolio turnover, which could negatively impact the net after-tax gain experienced by an individual client. Performance results do not reflect the impact of taxes. Investments in the programs are subject to investment risk, including possible loss of principal. Tactical management and diversification strategies do not protect against losses in declining markets. Quartz’s risk management process includes an effort to monitor and management risk, but should not be confused with (and does not imply) low risk. 


Exchange-Traded Funds (“ETFs”) trade like stocks and may trade for less than their net asset value. The use of leverage strategies by a fund increases the risk to the fund and magnifies gains or losses on the investment. You could incur significant losses even if the long-term performance of the underlying index showed a gain. Most leveraged funds “reset” daily. Due to the effect of compounding, their performance over longer periods of time can differ significantly from the performance of their underlying index or benchmark during the same period of time. Inverse index funds experience losses when the benchmark used rises. The benchmarks referenced herein have not been selected to represent an appropriate benchmark with which to compare a client’s performance, but rather are disclosed to allow for comparison of the client’s performance to that of certain well-known and widely recognized indices. Indexes are unmanaged, do not incur management fees, costs and expenses, and cannot be invested in directly. The S&P 500 Index is a market capitalization-weighted index of 500 widely held stocks often used as a proxy for the stock market. It is the most widely used benchmark for U.S. stock funds and portfolios. The Barclays Capital U.S. Aggregate Bond Index is comprised of approximately 6,000 publicly traded bonds including U.S Government, mortgage-backed, corporate, and Yankee bonds with an approximate average maturity of 10 years. The Barclays U.S. Corporate High-Yield Index covers the U.S. dollar-denominated, non-investment grade, fixed rate, taxable corporate bond market. Securities are classified as high-yield if the middle rating of Moody’s, Fitch, and S&P is Ba1/BB+/BB+ or below. These portfolios tend to hold larger positions in stocks than conservative-allocation portfolios. These portfolios typically have 50% to 70% of assets in equities and the remainder in fixed income and cash. The funds that compose this Average incur different fees and expenses than the Strategy, which is not registered as an open-end fund as set forth by the Investment Company Act of 1940; the Average performance is therefore provided for informational purposes only.
