Perkins Investment Management LLC is an indirect subsidiary of Janus Capital Group Inc. and serves as the sub-adviser on certain products.

Past performance cannot guarantee future results. Your principal may be at risk during certain market periods. Composite returns for one year or greater are annualized. Returns are expressed in U.S. dollars. All returns are net of transaction costs and gross of non-reclaimable withholding taxes, if any, and reflect the reinvestment of dividends and other earnings

The gross performance results presented do not reflect the deduction of investment advisory fees and returns will be reduced by such advisory fees and other contractual expenses as described in the individual contract and Form ADV Part 2A.

Net performance results do not reflect the deduction of investment advisory fees actually charged to the accounts in the composite but they do reflect the deduction of model investment advisory fees based on the maximum fixed fee rate in effect for the respective time period. Actual advisory fees may vary among clients invested in the strategy shown and may be higher or lower than model advisory fees. Composites may include accounts with performance-based fees. Returns for each client will be reduced by such fees and expenses as negotiated in any client contract as discussed in Form ADV Part 2A.

Sector weightings, portfolio characteristics, market cap weightings and holdings are based on a representative account. Such data may vary for each client in the strategy due to asset size, market conditions, client guidelines and diversity of portfolio holdings. The representative account is the account in the composite that we believe most closely reflects the current portfolio management style for this strategy.

Portfolio holdings are subject to change without notice. The portfolio holdings presented represent securities held as of the period indicated, and may not be representative of current or future investments. No assumption should be made that the securities identified as being profitable will continue to be profitable. This material is provided for illustrative purposes only and should not be construed as an offer to sell, or the solicitation of offers to buy, or a recommendation for any security.

Perkins Mid Cap Value Composite uses the S&P Midcap 400 Index as a supplemental benchmark. Because the composite invests in names outside of the benchmark, Perkins feels the additional comparison is helpful in explaining composite performance during periods of dispersion between styles.

The Index returns are provided to represent the investment environment existing during the time periods shown. For comparison purposes, the index is fully invested, which includes the reinvestment of dividends and capital gains. The returns for the index do not include any transaction costs, management fees or other costs. Composition of each individual portfolio may differ from securities in the corresponding benchmark index. The index is used as a performance benchmark only, as Janus and Perkins do not attempt to replicate an index. Because Janus' and Perkins' sector weightings are a residual of portfolio construction, significant differences between sector weightings in client portfolios and the index are common.

Janus Capital Management LLC ("Janus"), an independent investment advisor registered under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, claims compliance with the Global Investment Performance Standards (GIPS®). For the purpose of complying with the GIPS standards Perkins Investment Management LLC, which is owned 80% by Janus, is included within Janus.

Perkins Mid Cap Value portfolios, benchmarked to the Russell Midcap® Value Index, are broadly diversified and seek to identify quality mid-sized US companies trading at discounted prices with favorable risk/reward potential. The strategy emphasizes common stocks of companies with market capitalizations from $1 billion to $20 billion, with flexibility to occasionally invest outside of that range. Prior to 2003, the composite was known as the Berger Mid Cap Value Equity Composite. Prior to 2003 the composite included both institutional accounts and mutual funds. In 2003 and 2004 the composite include only separately managed institutional accounts. Effective January 1, 2005 the composite definition was changed to include sub-advised pooled funds as well as separately managed institutional accounts. Effective January 1, 2009 the composite definition was expanded to also include proprietary mutual funds. A minimum asset size requirement of $1 million for composite participation was used prior to January 1, 2006. The composite was created in December 1998.
