Small Cap Value Equity Composite, inception/creation date of January 1, 2000, uses a value style of equity portfolio management where portfolios have a weighted average market cap similar to the Russell 2000® Value Index with no minimum account size. Prior to September 30, 2008 the minimum account size for the composite was $1 million. As of 7/1/2013, the composite was redefined to include accounts managed in the Smid mandate to further broaden the strategy. 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. Effective April 1, 2006, 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; prior monthly periods reflect a policy of at least one full reporting period under management before a new portfolio would be added to the composite. Returns are denominated in U.S. Dollars. Performance results are shown “gross” and “net” using actual investment management fees and includes the reinvestment of all income and trade execution costs. Percentage returns include portfolios under management that meet the following criteria: Full discretionary investment authority and follow common investment strategies. No selective periods for presentation have been utilized. As of 12/31/13 0.06% of composite are non fee paying.

Composite dispersion measures represent the consistency of a firm’s composite performance with respect to the individual portfolio returns within a composite. The dispersion of annual returns is measured by the asset weighted standard deviation of portfolios in the composite for the entire year. *N/M – Statistical measures of internal dispersions for composites with five or fewer accounts are considered not meaningful. **Standard Deviation is high due to cash flows in one account. The three -year standard deviation is an annualized ex-post standard deviation measure of 36 monthly returns.
