The information is not intended for distribution or use by any person in any jurisdiction where such distribution would be contrary to local law or regulation.

This information is obtained from sources believed to be reliable, its accuracy and completeness are not guaranteed, and is subject to change.

    This report is provided for informational purposes only and is not intended to be, and should not be construed as, an offer, solicitation or recommendation with respect to any transaction and should not be treated as legal advice, investment advice or tax advice. Recipients should not rely upon this information as a substitute for obtaining specific legal or tax advice from their own professional legal or tax advisors.

    All securities investing and trading activities risk the loss of capital. Each portfolio is subject to substantial risks including market risks, strategy risks, advisor risk, and risks with respect to its investment in other structures. There can be no assurance that any portfolio investment objectives will be achieved, or that any investment will achieve profits or avoid incurring substantial losses. No investment strategy or risk management technique can guarantee returns or eliminate risk in any market environment. Risk controls and models do not promise any level of performance or guarantee against loss of principal. Any discussion of risk management is intended to describe NTAM’s efforts to monitor and manage risk but does not imply low risk.

     

    Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) investing involves certain risks because the methodology of an underlying index selects and assigns weights to securities of issuers for nonfinancial reasons, a strategy may underperform the broader equity market or other strategies that do not utilize ESG criteria when selecting investments. The companies selected by an index provider as demonstrating ESG characteristics may not be the same companies selected by other index providers that use similar ESG screens. In addition, companies selected by an index provider may not exhibit positive or favorable ESG characteristics. Regulatory changes or interpretations regarding the definitions and/or use of ESG criteria could have a material adverse effect on a strategy’s ability to invest in accordance with its investment policies and/or achieve its investment objective.

Net performance returns are reduced by investment management fees and other expenses relating to the management of the account. Gross performance returns contained herein include reinvestment of dividends and other earnings, transaction costs, and all fees and expenses other than investment management fees, unless indicated otherwise. For additional information on fees, please refer to Part 2a of the Form ADV or consult an NTI representative.
