Performance

Past results are not necessarily indicative of future performance and are no guarantee that losses will not occur in the future.  Future returns are not guaranteed and a loss of principal may occur.  The standard deviations, information ratios and allocation targets may be higher or lower at any time.  There is no guarantee that these measurements will be achieved.  The information provided should not be considered a recommendation to purchase or sell a particular security. Any specific securities identified do not represent all of the securities purchased, sold or recommended for advisory clients, and may be only a small percentage of the entire portfolio and may not remain in the portfolio at the time you receive this report.  You should not assume that investment decisions we make in the future will be profitable or will equal the investment performance of the past.  The performance shown is compared to several indexes shown herein. Broad-based securities indices are unmanaged and are not subject to fees and expenses typically associated with managed accounts or investment funds. The number and types of securities found in the index can differ greatly from that of the accounts held in the strategy shown. Investments cannot be made directly in an index.  Diversification does not guarantee a profit nor protect against loss.

Actual Performance – See Additional Specific Performance Disclosures

Any performance shown is for the stated time period only; due to market volatility, each account’s performance may be different.  Returns are shown net of management fees, trading costs, and other direct expenses, but before custody charges, withholding taxes, and other indirect expenses. The returns shown assume the reinvestment of dividends and other income. In the case of projected performance and cash flows, it is presented in response to client’s request.  Performance is expressed in U.S. dollars unless noted otherwise.  Performance results for one year and less are not annualized.  The performance shown is for the stated time period only; due to market volatility, each account’s performance may be different.  Returns are shown net of management fees, trading costs, and other direct expenses, but before custody charges, withholding taxes, and other indirect expenses.

The estimated fair values of certain investments of underlying funds, which may include private placements and other securities for which prices are not readily available, are determined by the general partner or sponsor of the respective underlying funds and may not reflect amounts that could be realized upon immediate sale, nor amounts that ultimately may be realized.  Accordingly, the estimated fair values may differ significantly from the values that would have been used had a ready market existed for these investments.  The fair value of the Partnership’s investments in underlying funds generally represents the amount the Partnership would expect to receive if it were to liquidate its investment in the other underlying funds, excluding any redemption charges that may apply.

Back Tested Results

Any back-tested results based on simulated or hypothetical performance have certain inherent limitations. Unlike the results shown in an actual performance record, these results do not represent actual trading. Also, because these trades have not actually been executed, these results may have under-or over-compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated or hypothetical trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to these being shown.

Any case studies are intended to illustrate products and services available through SkyOak.  They do not necessarily represent the experience of other clients nor do they indicate future performance.
