The strategies have a recent inception date and therefore actual historical strategy performance information is not available. The process by which securities are selected and assets are allocated within WBI Power Factor SMA strategies, which are aggressive, will typically occur no more frequently than quarterly, which may cause accounts invested at different times during a quarter to reflect implementation of the strategies on a different basis than other accounts managed to the same or a similar strategy. The accounts may invest in and hold securities which are declining in value for an extended period of time, typically without taking a temporary defensive position, as part of the normal operation of the investment strategy.
