Issues discussed within this communication represent the investment manager's explanation of factors that were considered when executing transactions or holding specific securities on the prior date indicated. Because this is a managed portfolio, the investment mix will change and the holdings are not indicative of future portfolio composition. Marketplace conditions fluctuate suddenly and frequently, and investment manager's opinions may change. These comments are not intended to be and do not constitute recommendations that others buy, sell or hold any of the securities discussed. 

Portfolio characteristics are from a representative portfolio and for illustrative purposes only. Actual account characteristics of individual accounts may be different. Portfolio characteristics are as of the date shown above and are based on individual securities in the portfolio on that date. Securities in the portfolio are subject to change. 

ESG investments may be viewed as “sustainable,” “responsible” or “socially conscious,” among other names. ESG factors may be utilized and evaluated differently by different investment managers and may mean different things to different people. Investing based in part on ESG factors carries the risk that, under certain market conditions, the investment strategy may underperform strategies that do not utilize such factors. The application of responsible investment criteria may affect exposure to certain sectors or types of investments and may impact relative investment performance depending on whether such sectors or investments are in or out of favor in the market. An investment’s ESG performance or an investment manager’s assessment of such performance may change over time. The successful application of ESG factors is dependent on an investment manager’s skill in properly identifying and analyzing material ESG issues, and the suitability of ESG investments may change over time.
