Performance

Consolidated TIS Performance represents only 'Model' numbers; please see the TIS ADV for a complete description of portfolio choices. Individual accounts may differ significantly (especially accounts below $200,000). Fee rates are blended levels. Some clients provide tailored instructions to fix positions and/or cash levels. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. See the disclosure section for more information on the computation of portfolio performance. ***NOTE: Performance for 2010 is exclusive of a portfolio where a client passing led to a partial freezing of the account during much of the year. Some small personal accounts are also excluded.

Notes

*See Disclosure page for more information. All TIS returns are computed on a before-tax time-weighted, internal rate of return basis and are net of all paid management fees. The S & P 500 return is taken from the Vanguard 500 fund. Figures are not audited.

*TIS accepted one outside client in October 1994; returns are therefore computed from 1995 onward.

* TIS does not use, implement, or recommend any short sales, margin transactions, option writing, including covered options, uncovered options, or spreading strategies, though investment company securities (mutual funds and closed end funds) may have used such strategies in their portfolios.

*Mutual funds were an integral component of investment accounts from 1994 to 1996, with individual stocks representing 8%, 10%, and 15% of assets respectively. By 12/31/97, individual stocks represented 73% of assets, and virtually all stock oriented mutual funds were eliminated by 12/31/98, though TIS does use mutual funds, closed end funds, and ETFs mostly for international exposure though other types will also be considered and used.
