Footnote:

1.Stated returns as of June 30, 2021, are gross of actual investment fees, trading costs, financing costs if any, operating expenses, foreign dividend withholding taxes and other applicable taxes, as well as performance-based fees. Returns include the reinvestment of income. A client’s returns will be reduced by the advisory fee and other expenses incurred in the management of its account. For example, the deduction of a 1% advisory fee over a 10-year period would reduce a 10% gross return to an 8.9% net return.

2. The investment objective underlying the Hazelview Global Real Estate Core Composite is to provide investors with exposure to high quality, institutional-grade real estate located in high barrier-to-entry markets. The composite reflects an investment strategy to seek to own a “best of breed” portfolio of investments made globally in developed markets around the world. The composite consists of a collection of client portfolios that follows the Hazelview global real estate core strategy. The composite was incepted in May 2009. The composite does not use leverage, but some client portfolios do use derivative contracts (currency forwards) to systematically hedge currency risks. The use of hedging will vary from period to period up to 100% of net foreign currency exposure. Performance Currency: USD. The one, three, five, ten year and since inception returns follow: 33.7%, 12.7%, 9.2%, 9.2%, and 13.2%. The benchmark represents the weighted-average of their constituent’s benchmarks calculated on a monthly basis. The constituents of the composites generally use the FTSE EPRA/NAREIT Developed Index as their benchmark but some of the constituent accounts use a customized version of the FTSE EPRA/NAREIT index due to specific requirements mandated by the clients such as currency hedging. The benchmark returns over the same one, three, five, ten year and since inception of the strategy follow: 35.5%, 7.5%, 6.1%, 7.4% and 11.7%.

3. The investment strategy underlying the Hazelview Global Real Estate Focused Composite is to seek to provide a highly concentrated portfolio of our top risk-adjusted names in the Global Real Estate Securities Universe that balances total return, risk and income. The composite was incepted in January 2014. Some of the client portfolios contain a small allocation to non-equity securities from time to time to reduce risk and enhance yield. The composite includes only the equity component of these portfolios with allocated cash according to the GIPS® 2020 Standard. The composite does not use leverage or derivative contracts. Performance Currency: USD. The one, three, five year and since inception of the strategy returns follow: 30.3%, 13.5%,  10.4% and 10.2%. The benchmark represents the weighted-average of their constituent’s benchmarks calculated on a monthly basis. The constituents of the composites generally use the FTSE EPRA/NAREIT Developed Index as their benchmarks but some of the constituent accounts could use a customized version of the FTSE EPRA/NAREIT index due to specific requirements mandated by the clients such as currency hedging. The benchmark returns over the same one, three, five year and since inception of the strategy follow: 34.8%, 7.4%, 6.0% and 7.3%.
