The All Cap Growth Composite figures for the period 1/87 to 8/95 reflect theperformance of assets managed exclusively by Van Schreiber while he was affiliated with Deutsche Morgan Grenfell/C.J.

Over the period, average monthly (i) margin balances and (ii) short positions were each less than 5% of the portfoliovalue. Leverage, which amplifies both gains and losses, is not employed in client portfolios and is not a part of the Growth Equity Strategy.• Performance results are net of commissions paid on securities transactions and margin interest paid, and include dividends and interest earned.• Net returns reflect the deduction from the gross returns of an annual 1% management fee charged on a quarterly basis, which represents the highest advisory fee.Bennett Lawrence Management, LLC• The information provided in this report should not be considered a recommendation to purchase or sell any particular security.

    23. 23. All Cap Growth Composite ("Composite") contains fully discretionary all cap growth accounts and for comparison purposes is measured against the Russell 3000 Growth Index.Bennett Lawrence Management, LLC (BLM) claims compliance with the Global Investment Performance Standards (GIPS®) and has prepared and presented this report in compliance withthe GIPS standards. BLM has been independently verified for the periods October 1, 1997 through December 31, 2007 by Ashland Partners & Company LLP.Verification assesses whether (1) the firm has complied with all the composite construction requirements of the GIPS standards on a firm-wide basis and (2) the firm’s policies and proceduresare designed to calculate and present performance in compliance with the GIPS standards. Verification does not ensure the accuracy of any specific composite presentation. The Compositehas been examined for the periods October 1, 1997 through December 31, 2007. The verification and performance examination reports are available upon request.BLM is an independent investment adviser registered under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940. The Growth Equity Composite was created October 1995 and the name changed January 1,2011 to the All Cap Growth Composite. A list of composite descriptions is available upon request.Effective January 1, 2011, the benchmark was changed from the Russell Midcap Growth Index to the Russell 3000 Growth Index. The Russell 3000 Growth Index measures the performanceof the broad growth segment of the U.S. equity universe. It includes those Russell 3000 companies with higher price-to-book ratios and higher forecasted growth values. The Russell 3000Growth Index is constructed to provide a comprehensive, unbiased, and stable barometer of the broad growth market. This change was made to better reflect a broader range of market capexposure; as the Composite does not have defined market cap parameters.Returns are based on fully discretionary accounts under management, including those accounts no longer with the firm. The U.S. Dollar is the currency used to express performance returns.Returns are net of commissions on securities transactions and margin interest paid, and includes dividends and interest earned. Gross returns are gross of management fees paid. Net returnsreflect the deduction from the gross returns of an annual 1% management fee charged on a quarterly basis, which represents the highest advisory fee. The management fee schedule for thestrategy is 1% on the first $5 million and 0.75% thereafter and is charged on a quarterly basis. Actual management fees incurred by clients may vary. Past performance is not indicative offuture results.Net of sponsor fee returns are calculated using an annual 1% sponsor fee, charged on a quarterly basis, which represents the highest sponsor fee provided. The sponsor fee is in addition to theadvisory fee. Sponsor fee accounts pay an all-inclusive fee to the sponsor based on a percentage of assets under management. Other than brokerage commissions, this fee may includeinvestment management, portfolio monitoring, consulting services, and in some cases, custodial services. Gross returns are supplemental for the periods that include sponsor accounts.Sponsor fee schedules are provided by independent wrap sponsors and are available upon request from the respective wrap sponsor.The annual composite dispersion presented is an asset-weighted standard deviation calculated for the accounts in the composite the entire year. Additional information regarding the policiesfor calculating and reporting returns is available upon request.The composite policy prior to January 1, 2011 required the temporary removal of any portfolio incurring a client initiated significant cash flow where there is a 50% or greater inflow or a10% or greater outflow of the portfolio assets. The significant cash inflow or outflow generated multiple transactions that would not fully represent the strategy. The temporary removal ofsuch an account to a non-discretionary composite occurred at the beginning of the calendar quarter in which the significant cash flow occurs and the account re-entered the composite at thebeginning of the calendar quarter following a full calendar quarter after the cash flow. The composite policy now requires the temporary removal of any portfolio incurring a client initiatedsignificant cash flow where there is a 25% or greater inflow or outflow of the portfolio assets. The significant cash inflow or outflow would generate multiple transactions that would not fullyrepresent the strategy. The temporary removal of such an account to a non-discretionary composite occurs at the beginning of the calendar quarter in which the significant cash flow occursand the account re-enters the composite at the beginning of the calendar quarter following, at minimum, 30 calendar days after the cash flow. Additional information regarding the treatmentof significant cash flows is available upon request.All Cap Growth Composite GIPS Compliant PresentationAnnual Disclosure
    24. 24. The investment performance statistics reflect the investment performance record of Mr. Suydam Van Zandt Schreiber as a portfolio manager. Mr. Schreiber is currently the Managing Memberand Chief Portfolio Manager of the growth equity discipline at BLM. Prior to forming BLM in August 1995, Mr. Schreiber created a growth equity investment discipline that he used tomanage portfolios while he was employed at Deutsche Morgan Grenfell/C.J. Lawrence, Inc. His strategy was marketed as “Premium Growth Equity,” and he was the only portfolio managerresponsible for investment decisions that affected this product. From January 1, 1987 to December 31, 1995 the Composite returns are based on the eligible portfolios under Mr. Schreiber’smanagement that were also under Mr. Schreiber’s management at BLM for the entire fourth quarter of 1995. Composite portfolios, assets and performance from 1996 forward are based on alleligible portfolios under BLM’s management.For the period from January 1, 1987 to March 31, 1993, the Composite was comprised of one non-fee-paying account. This account was the only account under Mr. Schreiber’s managementfrom January 1, 1987 through September 30, 1992 and it was the only non-fee-paying account included in the composite from 1987 through 1996. Non-fee-paying account percentage from1987 to 1992: 100%, 1993: 73%, 1994: 16%, 1995: 11% and 1996: 3%. No non-fee-paying accounts were included from 1997 forward.In the period from January 1, 1987 to December 31, 1994, the limited use of leverage was employed in the one non-fee-paying account through the borrowing of money to finance purchases(margin) and the selling of securities not owned (short selling). Over the period, average monthly (i) margin balances and (ii) short positions were each less than 5% of the portfolio value.Leverage, which amplifies both gains and losses, is not employed in client portfolios and is not a part of the growth equity strategy.The figures for the Russell 3000 Growth Index and the Russell Midcap Growth Index include dividends received and their timely reinvestment. The Index returns do not however, reflect anybrokerage commissions or management fees that might be incurred in actually investing in the securities representing these indexes. The Index returns are calculated by the Frank RussellCompany.At December 31, 2011, the three-year annualized ex-post standard deviation of the Composite’s gross returns, the Russell 3000 Growth Index and the Russell Midcap Growth Index are 1.77%,1.74% and 1.82%, respectively.All Cap Growth Composite GIPS Compliant PresentationAnnual Disclosure
