IMPORTANT DISCLOSURE INFORMATION
Investing involves risk. Past performance does not guarantee or indicate future results. Different types of investments involve varying degrees of risk. Therefore, it should not be assumed that future performance of any specific investment or investment strategy (including the investments and/or investment strategies recommended and/or undertaken by CMG Capital Management Group, Inc. (or any of its related entities, together “CMG”) will be profitable, equal any historical performance level(s), be suitable for your portfolio or individual situation, or prove successful. No portion of the content should be construed as an offer or solicitation for the purchase or sale of any security. References to specific securities, investment programs or funds are for illustrative purposes only and are not intended to be, and should not be interpreted as recommendations to purchase or sell such securities.
The CMG Managed High Yield Program composite creation date is September 2015 and inception date is January 2007. Net performance composite results are presented in US dollars, reflect the deduction of investment advisory fees, transaction costs, custodial fees, administrative fees and reflect the reinvestment of dividends and capital gains. From inception to January 2017, the investment management fee for the composite was 2.50%. From February 2017 to present, the investment management fee for the composite is 2.25%, the highest fee paid by a client. Actual fees may vary based on, among other factors, account size and custodial relationship. Individual returns may vary substantially from those presented due to differences in the timing of contributions and withdrawals, account start dates and actual fees paid.
The benchmark for the strategy is the Fixed Income benchmark, a custom benchmark comprised of: 60% BBgBarc US Corporate High Yield Total Return and 40% BBgBarc US Treasury Bill 1‐3 Month Total Return. The historical performance results of the benchmark do not reflect the deduction of transaction and custodial charges, or the deduction of an investment management fee, the incurrence of which would have the effect of decreasing indicated historical performance results. For example, the deduction of the combined annual advisory and transaction fees of 1.00% over a 10‐year period would decrease a 10% gross return to an 8.9% net return. The benchmark is not an index into which an investor can directly invest. The historical performance results (and those of all other indices) are provided exclusively for comparison purposes only, so as to provide general comparative information to assist an individual client or prospective client in determining whether the performance of a CMG portfolio performance meets, or continues to meet, his/her investment objective(s). It should not be assumed that CMG program holdings will correspond directly to any such comparative index.

In a rising interest rate environment, the value of fixed income securities generally declines and conversely, in a falling interest rate environment, the value of fixed income securities generally increases. High-yield securities may be subject to heightened market, interest rate or credit risk and should not be purchased solely because of the stated yield. Ratings are measured on a scale that ranges from AAA or Aaa (highest) to D or C (lowest). Investment-grade investments are those rated from highest down to BBB- or Baa3.
Certain strategies invest in exchange-traded funds (ETFs) or mutual funds, which are offered by prospectus only. Please carefully read each ETF’s or mutual fund prospectus(s) before investing. Investors should consider the underlying funds investment objectives, risk, charges and expenses carefully before investing. Past performance cannot predict or guarantee future success.
