The data provided in charts referring to IFA Index Portfolios or IFA Indexes is hypothetical back-tested performance and is not actual client performance. Performance data for the IFA Index Portfolios is shown net of IFA's highest advisory fee and the underlying mutual fund expenses. IFA Indexes when shown individually do not reflect a deduction of advisory fees. None of the data reflects trading costs or taxes, which would have lowered performance by these costs.
