SDBA Model Overview Disclosure

SDBA strategy typically seeks to participate in all markets and sectors by investing the portfolio in sectors which HCM’s Proactive Section Rotation (PSR) methodology indicates to have the potential to meet performance objectives. PSR is a tactical asset allocation methodology, which attempts to identify the best performing sectors at a given point in time. The SDBA strategies utilize the HCM-BuyLine® proprietary indicator to monitor market conditions and assist in determining whether or not assets should be invested in equity products or moved to cash, cash equivalents, or bond funds. Multiple indicators are monitored in an effort to identify such trends in the equity markets. The strategy is rebalanced periodically, and it is possible for the allocation to be adjusted, including when the HCM-BuyLine® indicates a strengthening or weakening of the equity markets. The net asset value per share of this HCM program will fluctuate as the value of the securities within the portfolio change. Because this Howard Capital Management, Inc. (HCM) strategy is actively managed, it may experience above-average turnover, which could have a negative impact on account performance. Naturally, there can be no guarantee that the HCM-BuyLine® indicator will perform as anticipated. Stoploss protection will not necessarily limit your losses to the desired amounts due to the limitations of the HCM-BuyLine®, market conditions, and delays in executing orders. It is not an actual stoploss order that automatically sells securities in the portfolio at a certain price.
