** The Dividend Yield is the annual percentage of the return earned by an investor on a common or preferred stock. The yield is calculated by dividing the amount of dividends paid per share over the past twelve months by the current market price per share of the stock. OSAM utilizes the services of Factset, a third party data provider vendor, to calculate portfolio characteristics and metrics. The dividend yield is a gross indicated yield. There is no guarantee that the rate of dividend payment will continue and the income derived is subject to taxes and expenses which will impact the actual yield experience of each investor.

Important Performance Disclosures

Performance returns are preliminary. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
Due to ongoing research, the manager may from time to time adjust the model by changing certain factors or screens which compromise the model without prior notice. OSAM may determine it appropriate to rebalance at times other than regularly scheduled rebalance without prior notice. Stocks with small and mid-sized market capitilazations (those defined by OSAM as less than $10 billion) may have greater risk and volatility than those with larger market capitilizations.

Style allocations are approximate. They may change over time and vary by account.
