                                Philosophy
           The primary philosophy of the WIM Asset Management Program is to:


    Understand the client’s investment objective and
     time horizon.
    Identify / quantify risk in the clients’ portfolio
    Analyze & determine the optimal mix of assets
     classes & investment styles in order to achieve the
     client’s investment objectives within his/her risk
     parameters.
    Monitor & rebalance the client’s portfolio as the
     investment environment, the client’s objective and
     / or risk profile change.

    Our challenge is to read the markets ongoing relationship to developments as they occur and invest in asset
    classes that will prosper as the evolution of these events continue.
       Our Professional services offer a unique departure from
    Traditional brokerage or commissioned tactics that fail to meet
                         Client expectations.
                       This is achieved through:


     Proper Asset Selection
     Diversification
     Reallocation
     Low Cost No-Load / Institutional Class Funds
     Low Cost Third Party Custodian Charges
     Full Time Account Monitoring
     Ongoing Analysis
Our concept is to maintain well diversified portfolios that reduce the negative effects of too much risk and
maximize the positive results of controlled volatility.

Washington Investment Management’s Goal is to Seek High Return on Assets
                   With Low Volatility in Each Account.
                                                                        (WIM FLEXIBLE ACCT. DATA)




SCATTERGRAM
A scatter gram is a graphical representation of a manager’s risk/return profile within a peer group or related database – typically over a 5- or 10-year time period. Crosshairs
depicts appropriate comparative index.
SHARPE RATIO
This statistic is a commonly used measure of risk-adjusted return. It is calculated by subtracting the Risk-Free Return (usually three-month Treasury bill) from the portfolio
return and dividing the resulting excess return by the portfolio’s total risk level (standard deviation). The result is a measure of return gained per unit of total risk taken. The
higher the Sharpe ratio, the better the fund’s historical risk-adjusted performance.
                                                                                                 ALPHA
 This statistic measures a portfolio’s return in excess of the market’s return adjusted for risk. It is a measure of the manager’s contribution to performance with reference to security
                          selection. A positive alpha indicates that a portfolio was positively rewarded for the residual risk taken for that level of market exposure.
                                                                      Alpha = Mean of excess returns of portfolio – mean of excess returns of index
                                                                                                  BETA
Beta is a statistical measure of the volatility, or sensitivity, of rates of return on a portfolio or security in comparison to a market index. The beta value measures the expected change
                    in return per one percent change in the return on the market. Thus, a portfolio with a beta of 1.1 would move 10 percent or more than the market.
                                                                                             R-SQUARED
   Formally called the coefficient of determination, this measures the overall strength or explanatory, power of a statistical relationship. In general, a higher R2 means a stronger
                   statistical relationship between the variables that have been estimated, and therefore more confidence in using the estimation for decision making.
                                                                                   WIM Total Return Data




                                                                                          SHARPE RATIO
           This statistic is a commonly used measure of risk-adjusted return. It is calculated by subtracting the Risk-Free Return (usually three-month Treasury bill) from the
        portfolio return and dividing the resulting excess return by the portfolio’s total risk level (standard deviation). The result is a measure of return gained per unit of total risk
                                                 taken. The higher the Sharpe ratio, the better the fund’s historical risk-adjusted performance.
                                                                                      STANDARD DEVIATION
         Standard deviation is a statistical measure of portfolio risk. It reflects the average deviation of the observations from their sample mean. Standard deviation is used as
            an estimate of risk since it measures how wide the range of returns typically is. The wider the typical range of returns, the higher the standard deviations of
        returns, and the higher the portfolio risk. The returns are normally distributed (i.e., have a bell-shaped curve distribution) then approximately 2/3 of the returns would
                                                          occur within plus or minus one standard deviation from the sample mean.
 The above charts contain returns for periods of time, prior to May 2004, for which the portfolio
    was not in existence. These hypothetical model portfolios which are illustrative of how the
quantitative model as currently structured might have performed had it been in existence at the
   time. It is not a description of actual historical performance, and specific recommendations
  could have and may vary among clients based upon different material market conditions and
    client circumstances. Model presentations are inherently limited in their ability to indicate
     future performance and benefit from hindsight. In addition, stated model returns include
   reinvestment of dividends and other earnings. Thus, model returns are not indicative of the
   allocation or returns that an actual managed account in the future will achieve. Benchmark
indices chosen by us are believed to closely relate to the portfolio, however there may be other
  benchmarks which may more closely relate. Investors cannot invest in an index and fees for
     investing in unmanaged index funds may be significantly less than those fees paid for a
 managed account. Presentation of portfolio returns since May 2004 are based upon returns of
  the funds during the relevant period of time but do not reflect clients’ actual account returns
 but which are not believed to be materially different than those presented. All performance is
    net of the investment advisor’s fee, transaction costs and other material fees but does not
  include deduction of custodial fees. Past performance is not indicative of future returns and
  there is a risk of loss of principal as well as gain. Graphs and charts alone should not be the
 basis of any investment decision. An investor should read the prospectus for any investment
 prior to investing. A more detailed description of the investment advisor and its approach are
      available in the advisor’s Form ADV Part II which is provided herewith (if this is the first

                           Allocation must be Managed.”
                    ROBERT ARNOTT, EDITOR FINANCIAL ANALYST JOURNAL




“Asset Allocation has many moving parts and requires ongoing management.
      Asset Allocation is the Single Most Important Factor of a portfolio’s
   performance, and can account for over 90% of a portfolio’s performance.”

                     the Typical Mix of Stocks and Bonds.”
