Price/Earnings Ratio - Price-to-earnings (P/E) is the ratio of the market price of a firm’s common stock to its current (or predicted) earnings per share. Price/Book Ratio - Price-to-book value (P/B) is a ratio used to compare a stock's market value with its book value. It is calculated by dividing the current closing price of the stock by the latest quarter’s book value (assets minus liabilities).

Weighted Avg Market Cap - Weighted average market cap is the average market capitalization of corporations in a fund or index, weighted by the percentage of the holding in the fund or index.

Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. No investment strategy or risk management technique can guarantee returns or eliminate risk in any market environment.

Performance information is based on the Composite.

Net returns assume the reinvestment of dividends, and are net of a 3.0% annual account advisory fee, which is the historical industry standard in the wrap account industry. Gross returns assume the reinvestment of dividends, but do not reflect the deduction of any account advisory fees or other expenses that an investor would pay, which would reduce returns.

The US Dynamic Large Cap Value Composite (“Institutional Composite”) is being shown as representative of the BNYM Newton Dynamic Value Strategy (“SMA Strategy”). The Institutional Composite is managed by the same investment team using a substantially similar investment process that is used for the SMA Strategy. The SMA Strategy is provided on a non-discretionary, model-only basis. Although BNY Mellon Securities Corporation, the SMA manager of record, believes that the Institutional Composite is representative of the SMA Strategy, there may be material differences between the Institutional Composite and the SMA Strategy. Net of fee performance is shown using a fee of 3%, which is the historical industry standard in the wrap account industry, as additional information. Please note that this figure may double count transaction expenses which are embedded in the Institutional Composite's gross of fees performance and the model 3% wrap fee.

The benchmark for the SMA Strategy and Institutional Composite is the Russell 1000® Value Index.

The Russell 1000® Value Index measures the performance of the large-cap value segment of the U.S. equity universe. It includes those Russell 1000 companies that are considered more value-oriented relative to the overall market as defined by Russell's leading style methodology. The Russell 1000® Value Index is constructed to provide a comprehensive and unbiased barometer for the large-cap value segment. The index is completely reconstituted annually to ensure new and growing equities are included and that the represented companies continue to reflect value characteristics. Investors cannot invest directly in any index.

        Standard deviation - It is a statistical measure of the degree to which an individual portfolio return tends to vary from the mean, based on the entire population. The greater the degree of dispersion, the greater the degree of risk. In mutual funds, the standard deviation tells us how much the return on the fund is deviating from the expected normal returns.

        Alpha - It is a measure of a security's or portfolio's excess return.

        Beta - It is a measure of a security's or portfolio's volatility, or systematic risk.

        R-Squared - It is a statistical measure that represents the percentage of a fund's or security’s movements that are explained by movements in a benchmark index.

        Sharpe Ratio - It is a risk-adjusted measure that measures reward per unit of risk.

        Tracking Error - is a measure of the volatility of excess returns relative to a benchmark.

        Information Ratio - is a geometric measure of risk-adjusted performance. The Information Ratio is a version of the Sharpe Ratio, but unlike the Sharpe Ratio, the benchmark does not have to be the risk-free return.
