Important Information

Manager returns include trades and positions that fail IB Asset Management's trading rules, as a result, actual client returns will differ. IB Asset Management advisory fees are simulated and applied retro-actively to present the portfolio return "net-of-fees".

2. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Periodic and since inception performance returns are calculated daily. Monthly vs. S&P 500 return and the corresponding spark chart is calculated to the most recent month end date.

3. The investment minimum is the minimum investment required to follow a particular portfolio. The minimum amount is determined by IB Asset Management, based on the characteristics of the underlying portfolio. It should not be considered as specific investment advice for your investment situation.
