The benchmarks are used for comparative purposes only and generally reflects the risk or investment style of the investments reported on the schedules of investment performance. Investments made for the portfolios Edgewood manages according to its Large Cap Growth strategy may differ significantly in terms of security holdings, industry weightings, and asset allocation from those of the aforementioned indices. Accordingly, investment results and volatility will differ from those of the benchmarks. The S&P 500 is an unmanaged index with no expenses, which covers 500 industrial, utility, transportation and financial companies of US markets. It is a capitalization-weighted index calculated on a total return basis with dividends reinvested. The R1000 Growth measures the performance of those Russell 1000 companies with higher price-to-book ratios and higher forecasted growth rates and dividends are reinvested.
