1When IFA Indexes are shown in Index Portfolios, all returns data reflects a deduction of 0.9% annual investment advisory fee, which is the maximum IFA fee. Your fee may be less depending on assets under management at IFA. Unless indicated otherwise, data shown for each individual IFA Index is shown without a deduction of the IFA advisory fee. It is important to understand that the assumption of annual rebalancing has an impact on the monthly returns reported for the IFA index portfolios in both this Table, Table 11.9 and in the Index Calculator. The reason for this difference is that with annual rebalancing, the monthly returns are calculated by applying the asset class percentages to the year-to-date returns as of the beginning and the end of the month, unlike monthly rebalancing which assumes that the portfolio is perfectly in balance at the beginning of the month. See ifabt.com.

4At a month-end or year-end, the returns shown above may differ slightly from the returns shown on IFA's big table due to the different methods used in the calculation of the impact of advisory fees.
