Sample Reports for IFA Clients

  • This sample document is provided for the sole purpose of illustrating the type of report that clients receive from IFA. Although the report is from one of our clients with all identifying information removed, it should not be construed as an advertisement. It does not reflect the performance of any accounts other than the one held by this particular client. This report was chosen for illustrative purposes for the following reasons:
    • IFA typically builds one portfolio across the total number of accounts that a client has, which minimizes transaction costs while attempting to maximize after-tax returns. However, to explain the client web site, we wanted to use an easy to understand example. This portfolio consists of one account and has had very few cash flows so it was easy to understand.
    • Also, unlike the majority of IFA's accounts, this account happened to be opened on the first of the month, which is the date on which index performance data is calculated. So for purposes of the example, the dates of the actual account performance are in conformity with the dates of the benchmarks, which also are calculated from the first of the month.
  • This sample report reflects the deduction of IFA's investment advisory fees at a level commensurate with a portfolio of this size. Advisory fees charged depend upon the size of the portfolio. For an estimate of the advisory fees you would pay, please ask for IFA's Form ADV, Part II, which contains a fee schedule. Along with advisory fees, all client-paid expenses, except for brokerage commissions, have been deducted prior to calculating the return on the client's investment.
  • These results include the reinvestment of dividends, capital gains, and other earnings.
  • Past performance may not be indicative of future results. Therefore, no current or prospective client should assume that the future performance of any specific investment, investment strategy (including the investments and/or investment strategies recommended by the adviser), or product made reference to directly or indirectly, will be profitable or equal to past performance levels.
  • All investment strategies have the potential for profit or loss. Changes in investment strategies, contributions or withdrawals may materially alter the performance, strategy and results of your portfolio.
  • Different types of investments involve varying degrees of risk, and there can be no assurance that any specific investment will either be suitable or profitable for a client's investment portfolio.
  • Economic factors, market conditions, and investment strategies will affect the performance of any portfolio and there are no assurances that it will match or outperform any particular benchmark.
  • This sample report utilizes the S&P 500 for comparison purposes, because it is a standard industry benchmark. The S&P 500 is not the only index that is used as a benchmark for measuring the performance of a portfolio. We also show for comparative risk and return purposes IFA's INDEX PORTFOLIOS 30, 50, 70 and 90. These indexes and the S&P 500 are shown for comparative purposes in all of our client performance reporting.
