3D Hedged Equity is comprised of actual 3D Defender and actual S&P 500 returns. The combination is a hypothetical, which can be customized. 3D Hedged Equity is 50% 3D Defender & 50% S&P 500 created by combining the S&P 500 return net of 4 basis point monthly management fee, and the 3D Defender net return in these percentages, assumes a $1 million account. 3D Defender returns are calculated based on an assumed funding level of 25% of Trading Level and are intended to show the impact that 75% notional funding has on returns (when those returns are expressed as a percentage of account value rather than Trading Level). 3D Defender returns represent the actual performance of a proprietary account traded by the Advisor, net of the Advisor’s 1.25% management fee and 15% incentive fee charged on the Trading Level of the 3D Defender component. Returns do not include interest income. The 3D Defender component does not fluctuate with prior month’s profits or losses. 3D Defender live track record begins in February 2011 and was enhanced in November 2013.
