Recap's performance is hypothetical and does not represent the investment performance or the actual accounts of any clients. The securities in the hypothetical portfolio were selected with the full benefit of hindsight, after their performance over the period shown was known. The results achieved in our simulations do not guarantee future investment results. The model performance information is based on the back-tested performance of hypothetical investments over the time periods indicated. “Back-testing” is a process of objectively simulating historical investment returns by applying a set of rules for buying and selling securities, and other assets, backward in time, testing those rules, and hypothetically investing in the securities and other assets that are chosen. Any comparisons to indices are provided for illustrative purposes only.
