Different types of investments and/or investment strategies involve varying levels of risk, and there can be no assurance that any specific investment or investment strategy will be either suitable or profitable for a client's or prospective client's portfolio. Asset allocation and diversification concepts do not ensure a profit nor protect against loss in a declining market.
Past performance may not be indicative of future results. Therefore, no current or prospective client should assume that future performance will be profitable, or be equal either to the performance results reflected or any corresponding historical index.
The performance results presented reflect actual composite results that assume the reinvestment of dividends and other account earnings and do not reflect the impact of taxes.
For reasons including platform provider and custodian utilized, as well as variances in portfolio account holdings, market fluctuation, the date on which a client engaged Sumnicht’s services, regular model rebalancing and/or updates, and timing of account contributions and withdrawals, the underlying fees of a specific client's account may vary from these estimates. iSectors®, LLC (iSectors®) investment allocation models are only available through registered investment advisers, who will charge an additional fee for their advisory services.

iSectors models are based on (a) index ETFs (Exchange Traded Funds) that are designed to track their indexes, with the goal of neither outperforming nor underperforming their indexes and (b) actively managed ETFs and mutual funds that may outperform or underperform their benchmarks.
