Past performance is no guarantee of future results, and any expected returns or hypothetical projections may not reflect actual future performance. Furthermore, past returns may reflect the performance of assets for a finite time, or during a period of extreme market activity. All investments involve risk and may lose money. There can be no assurance that an investment mix or any projected or actual performance shown herein will lead to the expected results shown, or perform in any predictable manner. It should not be assumed that investors will experience returns in the future, if any, comparable to those shown or that any or all of von Berge Wealth’s clients experienced such returns.
Performance information is presented net of all management fees and expenses unless marked otherwise. Commissions are not considered since clients on the von Berge Wealth platform are not charged trading commissions. For all periods the performance information includes the reinvestment of dividends and interest unless otherwise noted. Any comparison to traditional financial advisors is based on an evaluation of average fees and returns. Actual results may be different for each investor, and there can be no guarantee of enhanced returns due to additional diversification, investment selection, or the use of von Berge Wealth’s investment management service.
Projected and hypothetical performance is intended to show only an expected range of possible investment outcomes based on historical average returns and standard deviation of each investment type contained in the investment mix recommended by von Berge Wealth but does not take into consideration the effect of taxes, changing risk profiles, or future investment decisions. Projected and hypothetical performance does not represent actual client accounts or actual trades and may not reflect the effect of material economic and market factors. The actual transaction costs in client accounts may be different.
Actual investors of von Berge Wealth may experience different results from any hypothetical results shown. There is a potential for loss, as well as gain, not reflected in the hypothetical information portrayed. The hypothetical performance results shown do not represent the results of actual trading using client assets but were achieved using the retroactive application of a model designed with the benefit of hindsight. Investors should carefully review the additional information presented by von Berge Wealth as part of any hypothetical comparison.
Any comparisons to indices are presented to provide you with an understanding of their long-term historical performance and are not presented to illustrate the performance of any security. The inclusion of market or composite indexes, benchmarks, or other measures of relative performance in the various risk/return charts does not imply that such indexes are appropriate performance measures for a client’s portfolio, but rather are used solely to illustrate the risk and return characteristics of select market indexes during the period. An index’s performance does not reflect the deduction of transaction costs, management fees, or other costs which would reduce returns. References to market or composite indexes, benchmarks, or other measures of relative market performance (indexes) over a specified period are provided for information only and do not imply that a portfolio will achieve similar returns, volatility or other results. The composition of an index may not reflect the way a portfolio is constructed about expected or achieved returns, portfolio guidelines, restrictions, sectors, correlations, concentrations, volatility, or tracking error targets, all of which may change over time. An investor cannot invest directly in an index. Because of the differences between the client allocations and any indices shown, von Berge Wealth cautions investors that no index is directly comparable to the performance shown since each index has its own unique results and volatility, and such indices if shown, should not be relied upon as an accurate comparison.
The above list is not inclusive; additional performance disclosures and risk data are available, upon request. Please contact your von Berge Wealth Advisor to discuss this matter further.
von Berge Wealth requires clients (“customers”) to provide current and accurate financial and personal information. von Berge Wealth will protect the information customers have provided in a manner that is safe, secure, and professional. von Berge Wealth and its employees are committed to protecting customer privacy and to safeguarding that information.
Investment Advisers who exercise voting authority concerning client securities must adopt and implement written policies and procedures, reasonably designed to ensure that proxies are voted in the best interest of clients. The procedures must address material conflicts that may arise in connection with proxy voting. The Rule further requires the adviser to provide a concise summary of the adviser’s proxy voting process and offer to provide copies of the complete proxy voting policy and procedures to clients upon request. Finally, the Rule requires that the adviser discloses to clients how they may obtain information regarding voted proxies.
As a matter of policy, the Investment Adviser and von Berge Wealth do not vote client securities. Clients either retain the responsibility to vote proxies or delegate such authority to underlying sub-advisers (if any). When the clients retain proxy voting responsibility, the clients will receive their proxies or other solicitations directly from their custodian or a transfer agent.
Clients should confer with their personal tax advisors regarding the tax consequences of investing in any investment. Clients and their personal tax advisors are responsible for how the transactions conducted in an investment account are reported to the IRS or any other taxing authority on the client’s personal tax returns. von Berge Wealth assumes no responsibility for the tax consequences to any client of any transaction.
