Micro Cap Value Equity Composite, Inception/creation date of January 1, 2008, focuses on emerging companies with a market cap range similar to the Russell Microcap® Index with no minimum account size. NorthPointe calculates performance results using a daily time weighted rate of return, and for the monthly calculation we geometrically link all the daily returns to get the monthly return. This takes out any effect of a cash flow during the month.. The quarterly composite calculation appropriately weights portfolio returns for the size of each portfolio using balances as of the beginning of the monthly reporting period. Composites will include new portfolios at the start of the first performance measurement period (monthly) after the portfolio is fully invested in the composite strategy. Returns are denominated in U.S. Dollars. Performance results are shown “gross” and “net” using actual investment management fees, which includes performance fees and includes the reinvestment of all income and trade execution costs. For the periods between 1/1/2008 and 4/30/2012,100% of composite assets are non-fee paying; for the year ending 12/31/2012 8% of composite assets are non-fee paying.
