The Manning & Napier Long-Term Municipal Bond Composite is a weighted average of discretionary separately managed and proprietary mutual fund accounts with a Long-Term Municipal Bond objective. Accounts in this composite must have a market value greater than $100,000 and tenure of at least one month under our management. The investment objective of accounts in this composite is to reduce reinvestment rate risk and seek to optimize returns, while reducing tax consequences through the use of municipal fixed income securities. Generally, Long-Term Municipal Bond accounts invest in securities with a maturity of ten years or more. Net-of-fee returns are calculated based off of the effective fees of the accounts in the composite. They are after brokerage commissions, reinvested income, and advisory fees, but if applicable, before custodian costs and the fees of the investor’s Personal Financial Advisor. Also, accounts subject to solicitation fees may incur as much as 0.15% in additional expenses. Fees will vary with size and circumstances and these fee differentials would impact returns accordingly. Past performance does not guarantee future results. All data are subject to revision.
