Total return performance has been calculated up until December 2015 by assuming the receipt of a quarter of the projected income every 3 months with this being reinvested into two model positions at half yearly intervals. Since this point in time we have held the accumulation share class of a fund wherever possible, the projected income from the other positions being re-invested on a quarterly basis as part of a general re-balance exercise.

Any performance information shown represents model portfolios which are periodically restructured and/or rebalanced. Although the model portfolios are representative of a client’s individual portfolio, the actual returns may vary from the model portfolio returns shown. In addition, model portfolio performance quoted does not take into consideration the cost of investing and /or management fees. The returns achieved by a client may be lower than the returns shown above. Although the model portfolios are representative of a client’s individual portfolio the asset allocation of and the investments held in a client’s individual portfolio may differ.
