The Manning & Napier Disciplined Value – U.S. (formerly known as U.S. Disciplined Value) Composite is a weighted average of discretionary separately managed accounts with a Disciplined Value – U.S. objective. Accounts in this composite must have a market value greater than $250,000 and tenure of at least one month under our management. This composite includes accounts invested in U.S. equities. The composite consists of diversified portfolios of mid-to-large capitalization stocks based on attractive free cash flow yields and attractive dividend yields. The proprietary criteria used include screens based on dividend yields, free cash flow yields, bankruptcy risk estimates, and market capitalization. Portfolios are typically rebalanced annually according to these criteria. At such time, we may use our discretion to attempt to minimize commission costs and realized capital gains. 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.
