proprietary methodologies and are subject to change over time.
2 Std. Deviation is a measure of the volatility of a portfolios return. Sharpe Ratio is
the return over the risk free rate per unit of risk. Drawdown is the largest
negative cumulative portfolio return from peak to trough. Risk profile data is net.
3 The credit ratings above may encompass emerging debt, developed rates, and
assetbacked exposure. Ratings for the emerging debt and developed rates
portions of the portfolio are derived by taking the Standard and Poors country
ratings and applying these ratings to the country exposures of the portfolio. For
the assetbacked portion of the portfolio, credit ratings are derived by using the
lowest rating among rating agencies at the issue level. Final credit ratings are
expressed based upon Standard and Poors ratings scale. Standard & Poors rates
securities from AAA (highest quality) to C (lowest quality), and D to indicate
securities in default; some securities are not rated (NR). BB and below are
considered below investment grade securities.
The above information is based on a representative account in the Strategy

MajorPerformanceDrivers
Equity
Positioning:

U.S. equities rose during the quarter and so they remain an expensive asset class. Although most nonU.S. equities declined in local
currency terms in the second quarter (the notable exceptionbeing the U.K.), developed exU.S. equities still offer muted expected
returns. We continue to concentrate our allocations in the most compelling areas, including emerging markets value and international
value primarily across Europe and Japan, while our exposure to the U.S. remains biased toward high quality positions.
At the end of the second quarter, equities represented approximately 41% of the portfolio. Our topdown equity and regional equity
targets remained unchanged during the quarter, but underlying position exposures did change as we eliminated our fundamentally
sourced equity positions and built a dedicated allocation to high quality equities, predominantlyin the U.S.

Results:

Equities declined modestly, detracting from portfolio returns during the quarter, due largely to exposures to European stocks and poor
selection within emerging markets. In particular, Consumer Discretionary positions in the U.K., Germany, and France and Financials
positions in France underperformed.Strong performance in Brazil Financials and Utilities in emerging equities was more than offset by
weakness in South Korea Consumer Discretionary, fundamental China IT positions, and China Financials.U.S. fundamental positions were
additive due primarily to strength in U.S. Consumer Discretionary (driven mainly by Amazon.com).

Alternative Strategies
Positioning:

We remain underwhelmed by the opportunities available across equity markets and look for other ways to get paid for taking risk.
Alternative strategies represent diversifying ways to generate returns. Alternative strategies are comprised of merger arbitrage, Special
Opportunities, Systematic Global Macro, and relative value interest rates & FX. At the end of the second quarter, alternative strategies
represented approximately 18% of the portfolio, having modestly decreased over the period as we reduced the weight in relative value
interest rates & FX.

Results:

During the quarter, alternative strategies contributed to portfolio returns, rising 1.3%. Systematic Global Macro delivered strong returns
of 5.4% due primarily to currency positions (long yen and NZD/short GBP and USD) and equity exposures (long U.K./short Japan). Merger
arbitrage declined as two deals (AllerganPfizer and Office DepotStaples) broke and another (Abbot LabsAlere) saw the probability of a
break rise. Relative value interest rates & FX rose modestly as currency positions (short EUR and CHF/long USD) were additive, while
opportunistic positions and interestrate strategies detracted. Special Opportunities was down modestly for the quarter as positive
returns on stock and bond positions in Canada Energy were offset by negative returns for U.S. Consumer Discretionary and Financials
equity positions.

Performance data quoted represents past performance and is not predictive of future performance. Returns are shown after the deduction of management fees, transaction
costs and other expenses, but before custody charges, withholding taxes, and other indirect expenses. The returns assume the reinvestment of dividends and other income.

QUARTERLYATTRIBUTION

Fixed Income
Positioning:

Sovereign rates once again rallied across the globe during the quarter and remain low (even negative), leaving few opportunities for
traditional duration exposures. Spreads in some credit assets look attractive, but underlying duration exposures and concerns about
potentially rising default rates limit our enthusiasm. TIPS also performed well, driving yields even lower to an unimpressive 0.09% on 10
year U.S. TIPS. The overall exposure to our fixed income allocation declined to 13% as we eliminated our TIPS position and broadbased
exposure to high yield. The fixed income portfolio is comprised of assetbacked securities, Emerging Country Debt, and a select number
of distressed credit opportunities.

Results:

The fixed income allocation contributed to portfolio performance as all strategies delivered positive returns. Emerging Country Debt
delivered strong returns of 7.3% due both to the decline in underlying Treasury yields as well as spread tightening. In addition, oil
producing countries, which we were overweight, benefitted from a strong rebound in oil prices. TIPS rallied as well (up 2.7%) as yields
fell as breakeven rates narrowed 25 basis points. Our assetbacked positions rose 1.5% while distressed credit holdings, inclusive of our
broadbased high yield position, also delivered a gain, increasing 1.2%.

Cash
Positioning:

Cash consists of U.S. Tbills and other high quality short duration government and agency securities. The portfolios cash allocation
increased 15% during the quarter to approximately 28%, due largely to the sale of our TIPS position. Cash represents an important dry
powder asset in an investment environment offering limited opportunities.

Results:

The allocation to cash had minimal impact on portfolio returns.

MajorPerformanceDrivers
Equity
Positioning:

U.S. equities rose during the quarter and remain an expensive asset class. Although most nonU.S. equities declined in local currency
terms in the second quarter (the notable exceptionbeing the U.K.), developed exU.S. equities still offer muted expected returns. We
continue to concentrate our allocations in the most compelling areas including emerging markets value and international value primarily
across Europe and Japan, while our exposure to the U.S. remains biased towards high quality positions.
At the end of the second quarter, equities represented approximately 39% of the portfolio. Our topdown equity and regional equity
targets remained unchanged during the quarter, but underlying position exposures did change as we eliminated our fundamentally
sourced equity positions and built a dedicated allocation to high quality equities, predominantly in the U.S.

Results:

Equities added to absolute returns and were flat on a relativebasis during the quarter. U.S. fundamental positions were additive due
primarily to strength in U.S. Consumer Discretionary (driven mainly by Amazon.com) while exposures to European stocks detracted.In
particular, Consumer Discretionary positions in the U.K., Germany, and France and Financials positions in France underperformed.

Alternative Strategies
Positioning:

We remain underwhelmed by the opportunities available across equity markets and look for other ways to get paid for taking risk.
Alternative strategies represent diversifying ways to generate returns. Alternative strategies are comprised of Special Opportunities and
Systematic Global Macro. Alternative strategies represented approximately 9% of the portfolio at quarter end.

Results:

During the quarter, alternative strategies contributed to absolute and relative returns, rising 2.1%. Special Opportunities was down
modestly for the quarter as positive returns on stock and bond positions in Canada Energy were offset by negative returns for U.S.
Consumer Discretionary and Financials equity positions. Systematic Global Macro delivered strong returns of 5.4% due primarily to
currency positions (long yen and NZD/short GBP and USD) and equity exposures (long U.K./short Japan).

Performance data quoted represents past performance and is not predictive of future performance. Returns are shown after the deduction of management fees, transaction
costs and other expenses, but before custody charges, withholding taxes, and other indirect expenses. The returns assume the reinvestment of dividends and other income.

QUARTERLYATTRIBUTION
Fixed Income
Positioning:

Sovereign rates once again rallied across the globe during the quarter and remain low (even negative), leaving few opportunities for
traditional duration exposures. Spreads in some credit assets look attractive, but underlying duration exposures and concerns about
potentially rising default rates limit our enthusiasm. TIPS also performed well, driving yields even lower to an unimpressive 0.09% on 10
year U.S. TIPS. The overall exposure to our fixed income allocation declined to 10% as we eliminated our TIPS position and broadbased
exposure to high yield. The fixed income portfolio is comprised of assetbacked securities and Emerging Country Debt.

Results:

The fixed income allocation contributed strongly to portfolio performance as all strategies delivered positive returns. Emerging Country
Debt delivered strong returns of 7.4% due both to the decline in underlying Treasury yields as well as spread tightening. In addition, oil
producing countries, which we were overweight, benefitted from a strong rebound in oil prices. TIPS rallied as well (up 2.8%) as yields fell
as breakeven rates narrowed 25 basis points. Our assetbacked positions rose 1.6% while our small exposure to broadbased high yield
increased as well.

MultiStrategy / Cash and Cash Equivalents


Positioning:

MultiStrategy is a diversified portfolio of GMO alpha strategies aimed at providing capital appreciation with a low beta to global equities
and correlation to traditional portfolios. The combination of MultiStrategy along with a meaningful allocation to cash and cash
equivalents provides us greater flexibility to take risk elsewhere in the portfolio. Capital allocation with MultiStrategy evolved as we
decreased the exposure to Fixed Income Hedge Fund by approximately 9%, adding weight across our other strategies, including Total
Equities, which we are in the process of converting to an eventdriven strategy. As such, we continued to add merger arbitrage positions
to Total Equities during the quarter. At the end of the quarter, we held approximately 20% in MultiStrategy and 22% in cash. Cash
increased over 9% as we sold out of our TIPS and broadbased high yield exposures.

Results:

A positive return of 1.4% in MultiStrategy for the quarter led our MultiStrategy and Cash and Cash Equivalents allocation to add to
portfolio returns. Within MultiStrategy, gains in Systematic Global Macro and Emerging Country Debt more than offset declines in Mean
Reversion and Completion. Systematic Global Macro delivered strong returns of 5.5% primarily due to currency positions (long yen and
NZD/short GBP and USD) and equity exposures (long U.K./short Japan). Our fixed income positioning (long U.S. and U.K. bonds/short
Japanese bonds) was also additive. Emerging Country Debt delivered strong returns of 8.1% due both to the decline in underlying
Treasury yields as well as spread tightening. In addition, oilproducing countries, which we were overweight, benefitted from a strong
rebound in oil prices. Our Argentina bond positions benefited as well as the country finally cured its dispute with holdout bondholders
during the quarter. Mean Reversion declined 2.2% largely due to equity positions somewhat offset by gains in rates. Positions in EAFE
and EM value vs. Russell 2000 lost money over the quarter. In rates, yields fell globally and curves flattened, benefiting our receive
positions in AUD, SEK and NZD forward swaps. In currency, small gains for our long USD/Asia and USD/antipodes trades were offset by a
loss on our long EUR/USD position. In completion, our long quality/short S&P and merger arbitrage positions were the largest detractors.
Merger arbitrage declined modestly as two deals broke, driving deals spreads wider. Our cash and cash equivalents position had minimal
impact on portfolio returns.

we eliminated our fundamentallysourced equity positions and built a dedicated allocation to high quality equities, predominantly in the
U.S.

Results:

Equity positions were essentially flat for the quarter, detracting on a relative basis. From an allocation perspective, being underweight
equities, which failed to keep up with the blended benchmark, had little relative impact. Our allocations within equities, however,
detracted from relative performance as strength in the U.S., which outperformed the MSCI ACWI index, was more than offset by
underperformance in international and emerging equities, particularly European equities. Stock selection detracted modestly due to
weakness in U.S. Energy and Europe Consumer Discretionary, but was somewhat offset by strength in Japan Telecom and emerging
markets (Financials in Russia, India, and China).

QUARTERLYATTRIBUTION

Alternative Strategies
Positioning:

We remain underwhelmed by the opportunitiesavailable across equity markets and look for other ways to get paid for taking risk.
Alternative strategies represent diversifying ways to generate returns. Systematic Global Macro, our put selling strategy, and relative
value rates & FX comprised alternative strategies. Our weight in alternatives decreased 2% to 8% at quarter end as we reduced our
exposure to relative value rates & FX.

Results:

During the quarter, alternative strategies contributed to both absolute and relative returns. Systematic Global Macro delivered strong
returns of 5.4% due primarily to currency positions (long yen and NZD/short GBP and USD) and equity exposures (long U.K./short Japan).
Put selling rose a solid 3.9% during the quarter while relative value interest rates & FX rose modestly as rates positions (long USD versus
the EUR and CHF) were additive.

Fixed Income
Positioning:

Sovereign rates once again rallied across the globe during the quarter and remain low (even negative), leaving few opportunities for
traditional duration exposures. Spreads in some credit assets look attractive, but underlying duration exposures and concerns about
potentially rising default rates limit our enthusiasm. TIPS also performed well, driving yields even lower to an unimpressive 0.09% on 10
year U.S. TIPS. The overall exposure to our fixed income allocation declined to 17% versus the benchmark allocation of 35% as we
reduced our TIPS position by approximately 3% and eliminated our 1% broadbased exposure to high yield. The fixed income portfolio is
comprised of TIPS, assetbacked securities, and Emerging Country Debt.

Results:

Our fixed income allocation contributed to absolute returns and was a wash on a relative basis as all strategies delivered positive returns.
Our underweight to the asset class detracted from relative returns as bonds rallied, but was offset by positive selection effect within
fixed income. Emerging Country Debt delivered strong returns of 7.2% due both to the decline in underlying Treasury yields as well as
spread tightening. In addition, oilproducing countries, which we were overweight, benefitted from a strong rebound in oil prices. TIPS
rallied as well (up 2.0%) as yields fell when breakeven rates narrowed. Our assetbacked positions rose 1.5% while our small exposure to
broadbased high yield increased as well.

Cash/Cash Plus
Positioning:

We hold a combination of cash and the Alpha Only Strategy. Alpha Only seeks modestly positive returns over cash by taking long
positions in attractively priced equities while shorting market exposure through futures or direct equity positions. The portfolios
cash/cash plus position ended the quarter at approximately 24%, up 7% as we held proceeds from the sale of TIPS, high yield, and
relative value rates & FX in cash.

Results:

The allocation to cash/cash plus detracted modestly in both absolute and relative terms. Alpha Only fell due largely to the
outperformance of the R2000 (held short) relative to nonU.S. value stocks (held long), primarily developed country exposures.

Performance data quoted represents past performance and is not predictive of future performance. Returns are shown after the deduction of management fees, transaction
costs and other expenses, but before custody charges, withholding taxes, and other indirect expenses. The returns assume the reinvestment of dividends and other income.

MultiStrategy is a diversified portfolio of GMO alpha strategies aimed at providing capital appreciation with a low beta to global
equities and correlation to traditional portfolios. The combination of MultiStrategy along with a meaningful allocation to cash and
cash equivalents provides us greater flexibility to take risk elsewhere in the portfolio. Capital allocation with MultiStrategy evolved
as we decreased the exposure to Fixed Income Hedge Fund by approximately 9%, adding weight across our other strategies,
including Total Equities, which we are in the process of converting to an eventdriven strategy. As such, we continued to add merger
arbitrage positions to Total Equities during the quarter. At the end of the quarter, we held approximately 28% in MultiStrategy and
14% in cash. Cash increased over 8% as we sold down TIPS.

Results:

A positive return of 1.4% in MultiStrategy for the quarter led our MultiStrategy and cash and cash equivalents allocation to add to
portfolio returns. Within MultiStrategy,gains in Systematic Global Macro and Emerging Country Debt more than offset declines in
Mean Reversion and Completion. Systematic Global Macro delivered strong returns of 5.5% due primarily to currency positions (long
yen and NZD/short GBP and USD) and equity exposures (long U.K./short Japan). Our fixed income positioning (long U.S. and U.K.
bonds/short Japanese bonds) was also additive. Emerging Country Debt delivered strong returns of 8.1% due both to the decline in
underlying Treasury yields as well as spread tightening. In addition, oilproducing countries, which we were overweight, benefitted
from a strong rebound in oil prices. Our Argentina bond positions benefited as well as the country finally cured its dispute with
holdout bondholders during the quarter. Mean Reversion declined 2.2% due largely to equity positions somewhat offset by gains in
rates. Positions in EAFE and EM value vs. Russell 2000 lost money over the quarter. In rates, yields fell globally and curves flattened,
benefitting our receive positions in AUD, SEK, and NZD forward swaps. In currency, small gains for our long USD/Asia and
USD/antipodes trades were offset by a loss on our long EUR/USD position. In completion, our long quality/short S&P and merger
arbitrage positions were the largest detractors. Merger arbitrage declined modestly as two deals broke, driving deals spreads wider.
Our cash and cash equivalents positionhad minimal impact on portfolio returns.

QUARTERLYATTRIBUTION

Your portfolio returned +2.5% net of fees from a U.S. dollar perspective for the quarter and +6.7% for the year to date. This compares favorably with
the S&P 500s returns of +2.5% and +3.8% over the same periods and more so with the MSCI Worlds returns of +1.0% and +0.7%.

Stocks traded for the most part within a narrow range; the S&P 500s quarterly peak to trough spread was the lowest in a year. However, it didnt feel
like a quiet quarter for market participants as the drawdown was concentrated into just two days following Britains surprise decision to leave the
European Union.

The short-term impact of the so-called Brexit vote on your portfolio was dominated by currency movement. After the U.S. dollar, sterling is the next
most significant currency of denomination for your portfolio at around 8% of assets. Just as when the Swiss franc made a sharp move at the start of
2015, equity markets took a couple of days to process fully the exchange rate effects. Your U.K.-listed holdings were marked down by a few percentage
points on Brexit Day but regained their dollar valuations over the following couple of days. Our assessment of the value in British multi-nationals
such as Unilever and British American Tobacco is not dependent on their U.K. revenues none of your U.K. investments has more than 7% revenue
exposure to the U.K. and the sterling exchange rate is therefore largely passed through.

Exchange rates potentially cast a longer shadow on your portfolios multi-nationals (British, American, or otherwise), not via sterling but through the
knee-jerk appreciation of the USD, which makes their higher than average levels of non-USD revenues less valuable for now. Over the longer term, we
believe that the effect of exchange rates on multi-nationals will wash out.

The defensive nature of your portfolio helped during the period of pronounced volatility. Over the quarter as a whole, however, the portfolios sector
allocation hampered returns. The best performing sector was Energy, boosted by the continued rally in the price of crude; although we added one
Energy name to the portfolio when prices were lower, Energy is not a natural hunting ground for high quality names. At the other end of the spectrum,
technology stocks had a weak quarter and the portfolio has a substantial exposure here.

Stock selection acted as a positive force, especially in the Health Care sector. For several quarters now, biotechnology stocks have performed poorly,
having had a spectacular run until the middle of last year. The portfolio has shied away from biotech as a result of aggressive valuations, instead
preferring several medical devices companies and pharmaceuticals, largely via Johnson & Johnson. Johnson & Johnson made the largest positive
contribution to relative returns, benefitting from strong earnings momentum.

Although we did not trade your portfolio heavily, one addition proved to be a top contributor to returns from stock selection. We built a position in
crop science company, Monsanto. Weakness in farm profit margins created the conditions for a relatively attractive share price considering the
companys ability to generate free cash flow and the high returns from Monsantos significant investment in intellectual property over many years. The
stock price was re-rated sharply on the back of a (not yet formalized) takeover bid from Bayer. We remain ambivalent on a deal unless the price is high
the opportunity to participate in Monsantos cash flows is also attractive.

Over the quarter, your portfolios non-U.S. domiciled positions comfortably outperformed the S&P 500, and generally outperformed their local indices.
In an environment in which the risks to global sentiment appear to be on the rise, the portfolios emphasis on identifying specific high-returning assets
coupled to capital discipline should offer some comfort.

Performance data quoted represents past performance and is not predictive of future performance. Returns are shown after the deduction of management fees, transaction
costs and other expenses, but before custody charges, withholding taxes, and other indirect expenses. The returns assume the reinvestment of dividends and other income.

QUARTERLYATTRIBUTION

The International Active EAFE Strategy underperformed the MSCI EAFE index by 0.7 percentage points in the second quarter, falling 2.2% net of fees
while the benchmark lost 1.5%.

Developed market stock selection lagged for the quarter. The portfolios overweight to U.K. equities detracted from performance when the British
pound weakened due to the U.K. electorates decision to exit the European Union. The effect of the currency was offset by the portfolios underlying
stock exposure within the U.K., however, which is in predominantly global businesses with limited profits from the U.K. economy. Our top three
holdings are AstraZeneca, British American Tobacco, and Imperial Tobacco. These companies are actually beneficiaries of a weaker British pound.

Our underweight position in European banks, especially the U.K. banks, helped the portfolio. Besides the obvious uncertainty surrounding Brexit, U.K.
banks also suffered because of their exposure to the peaking U.K. housing market and slowing emerging markets.

Essentra, a U.K. distribution group and holding in the portfolio, was negatively impacted by a profit warning. The company experienced integration
difficulties on a recent acquisition as well as some trading weakness at its filters division. Holding building products distributor Travis Perkins also
negatively impacted the portfolio during the quarter. The company is exposed to cyclical markets and 100% of revenue is derived from the U.K. Shares
fell hard in the wake of the Brexit vote. The negative impact on the portfolio of Travis Perkins and Essentra was exacerbated by the slump in sterling
post Brexit.

Holdings in Japan outperformed during the quarter. It was a difficult environment for Japanese equities in general, owing to roughly a 9% rise in the
value of the yen versus the dollar during the period. The strongest performance came from our holdings in two telecom stocks, NTT and KDDI. In May,
NTT continued to earn the markets trust by announcing a 350 billion yen share buyback program. Similarly, KDDI announced the retirement of over
2.5% of treasury shares. Truck manufacturer, Isuzu, also outperformed as the company announced truck unit volume growth in Thailand, an important
end market investors use to gauge the pace of recovery of demand in emerging markets. Stocks that underperformed were companies that announced
weaker than expected 1Q earnings. Nippon Electric Glass and Bridgestone were the main culprits. In both cases, the companies claim that inventory
adjustments have led to short-term negative sales results. In the case of Bridgestone, short-term concerns over inventory adjustment were amplified by
the fear that strengthening yen could impair prospects for achieving full year guidance.

Scentre Group and Samsung Electronics added alpha in the Asia and emerging markets section of the portfolio. The former is a high quality retail REIT
in Australia that continues to benefit from the fall in interest rates we see across the world. While wary that this fall in rates is signaling poor economic
prospects, Scentres rental portfolio should hold up better than other lower grade competitors. Samsung has been moving back toward the top end of its
long-term trading band as the market warms up to better results from the companys all-important handset division. The stock remains very cheap on
almost all metrics.

Power Assets Holdings (PAH) and Incitec Pivot both underperformed. PAH, while still a very defensive holding with one of the strongest balance
sheets in the portfolio, suffered because several of its operating assets are in the U.K. and the market revalued those down with the weakness in sterling.
Incitec Pivot, as explained in previous commentaries, has been weak because of falls in the ammonia/natural gas spread this year. We believe that
despite this they will see a material increase in cash flow as their Louisiana ammonia plant starts operations over the next year. This should help re-rate
the shares over time.

QUARTERLYATTRIBUTION

International Active Foreign Small Companies Strategy underperformed the S&P Developed ex-U.S. Small Cap index by 2.5 percentage points in the
second quarter, falling 3.8% net of fees while the benchmark fell 1.3%.

The effects of fair value pricing were slightly negative in the quarter.

Country and currency allocation were behind the benchmark, with our positioning in Europe significantly detracting from performance.

Stock selection also lagged the benchmark in the second quarter. Essentra, a U.K. distribution group and holding in the portfolio was negatively
impacted by a profit warning. The company experienced integration difficulties on a recent acquisition as well as some trading weakness at its filters
division. Holding building products distributor Travis Perkins also negatively impacted the portfolio during the quarter. The company is exposed to
cyclical markets and 100% of revenue is derived from the U.K. Shares fell hard in the wake of the U.K.s surprise vote to exit the European Union. The
negative impact on the portfolio of Travis Perkins and Essentra was exacerbated by the slump in sterling in the wake of the Leave vote.

The Brexit vote also negatively impacted Great Portland Estates, which is directly exposed to the London property market. Great Portland is
conservatively positioned in anticipation of an uncertain near term with low leverage and a committed development pipeline.

Yokohama Rubber, a tire company, stumbled during the quarter for three reasons. First, the company announced its intention to buy Alliance Tire, an
Indian agricultural tire specialist, from private equity investor KKR for $1.18bn. KKR bought the company just two years earlier for $500 million,
casting serious doubts that Yokohama management was getting a good price. Second, the company revised 1H earnings forecasts downward, citing a
host of issues, including excess inventories in the U.S. and credit losses in Russia. The final factor was the strengthening yen over the quarter, which
investors reckon will be a drag on overseas earnings. Tokyo Century Lease was collateral damage when the BoJ moved to negative interest rates. Leasing
is fundamentally a spread business between the cost to borrow funds and ability to price the payments for a leased item. Despite the fact that the
company was able to price three- and five-year bonds at 0.11 and 0.2 basis points, the market was concerned that core asset pricing would fall more. The
company gave two-year forward guidance of roughly 20% operating profit growth, but it did little to allay investor concerns.

QUARTERLYATTRIBUTION

The Emerging Markets Strategy rose 1.9% net of fees in the second quarter, outperforming the 1.4% rise in the S&P/IFCI Composite by 0.5% (MSCI
EM, a widely used index, rose 0.7% over the quarter). Overall, country-sector allocation gained 0.5%, while stock selection was flat.

The second quarters performance encompassed many a twist and turn. April was a good month as Chinese economic data continued to show signs of
strength and the Fed signaled that any rate increases would proceed cautiously. May, on the other hand, saw investors agonizing over the potential for a
Brexit shock and the Feds next interest rate increase. June, a solidly positive month, was dominated by the fallout and subsequent recovery from the
surprise outcome of the Brexit vote. Country returns over the quarter varied, ranging from an 18.2% leap in Peru to a 17.3% drop in Poland. Sector
returns were more clustered, varying from a 4.3% jump in Consumer Staples to a fall of 3.2% in the Industrials sector.

Brazilian equities have been on a bull rally with President Dilma Rousseffs impeachment and subsequent ouster. Interim President Michel Temers
plans to fix the economy have been well-received by investors. Later in the quarter, better-than-expected unemployment figures boosted optimism that
the country is pulling out of its growth slump. Our overweight in Brazil Utilities contributed to performance.

Investor sentiment in Greece took a nosedive after the U.K. voted to leave the European Union. Peripheral markets are seen as most vulnerable because
of their weaker fiscal positions and dependence on support from the rest of Europe. Our overweight in Greece Financials detracted from performance.

Stocks in India rose on optimism over the outlook for company earnings. A forecast for above-average rainfall following two years of droughts has
helped improve sentiment. More potent monsoons have the potential to help with food inflation and rural consumption. Recent state elections
strengthened the hand of the central government, raising hopes of passage of market friendly measures. Our overweight in India Financials boosted
performance.

Investors in Russia were cheered by the rise in crude oil prices. Russia receives about half of its budget revenue from oil and natural gas sales. The
market is also foreseeing a turnaround in the earnings of Russian companies. Toward the end of the quarter, Russian stocks were negatively impacted as
Britains vote to quit the European Union triggered a flight from riskier assets. Our overweight in Russia Financials helped performance.

The Turkish stock market began the quarter on an optimistic note as the new central bank governor emphasized price stability in his first major public
appearance. Investor sentiment turned sour later as investors disapproved of the rising concentration of power by President Erdogan. A change in
prime ministers, at Erdogans behest, is being seen as one more step toward the transformation of his largely ceremonial role into an executive
presidency. Our overweight in Turkey Telecommunications hurt performance.

QUARTERLYATTRIBUTION

The Emerging Domestic Opportunities Strategy invests in companies whose prospects are linked to the internal growth of the world's non-developed
markets. It uses fundamental analysis within a structured approach to select countries, sectors, and stocks that we believe are the most likely to benefit
from the rising demand for goods and services in emerging markets.

The Emerging Domestic Opportunities Strategy rose 4.0% net of fees in the second quarter. In comparison, MSCI EM, a widely used index, rose 0.7%
over the period.

The second quarters relatively flat return encompassed many a twist and turn. April was a good month as Chinese economic data continued to show
signs of strength and the Fed signaled that any rate increases would proceed cautiously. May, on the other hand, saw investors agonizing over the
potential for a Brexit shock and the Feds next interest rate increase. June, a solidly positive month, was dominated by the fallout and subsequent
recovery from the surprise outcome of the Brexit vote. Country returns over the quarter varied, ranging from an 18.2% leap in Peru to a 17.3% drop in
Poland. Domestic demand driven sector returns were more clustered, varying from a 4.3% jump in Consumer Staples to a fall of 3.2% in the Industrials
sector.

Brazilian equities have been on a bull rally with President Dilma Rousseffs impeachment and subsequent ouster. Interim President Michel Temers
plans to fix the economy have been well-received by investors. Later in the quarter, better-than-expected unemployment figures boosted optimism that
the country is pulling out of its growth slump. Our exposure to Brazil Consumer Staples and Financials contributed to performance.

Stocks in India rose on optimism over the outlook for company earnings. A forecast for above-average rainfall following two years of droughts has
helped improve sentiment. More potent monsoons have the potential to help with food inflation and rural consumption. Recent state elections
strengthened the hand of the central government, raising hopes of passage of market friendly measures. Our holdings in India Financials boosted
performance.

The election of Rodrigo Duterte as president of the Philippines is being welcomed by the stock market in a turnaround. The economy is motoring along
well on solid private household consumption and investment, buoyant business and consumer sentiment, and adequate credit and domestic liquidity
in the words of the central bank. Duterte has promised to boost public infrastructure spending to more than 5% of GDP. Our positions in Philippines
Consumer Staples added to performance.

Investors in Russia were cheered by the rise in crude oil prices. Russia receives about half of its budget revenue from oil and natural gas sales. The
market is also foreseeing a turnaround in the earnings of Russian companies. Toward the end of the quarter, Russian stocks were negatively impacted as
Britains vote to quit the European Union triggered a flight from riskier assets. Our investments in Russia Financials helped performance.

The Turkish stock market began the quarter on an optimistic note as the new central bank governor emphasized price stability in his first major public
appearance. Investor sentiment turned sour later as investors disapproved of the rising concentration of power by President Erdogan. A change in
prime ministers, at Erdogans behest, is being seen as one more step toward the transformation of his largely ceremonial role into an executive

QUARTERLYATTRIBUTION

The Global Bond Strategy returned +3.5% net of fees during the second quarter, underperforming the J.P. Morgan GBI Global index return of +3.6% by
0.1%. The 30-basis-point fall in the index yield accounted for the bulk of positive index returns, with the U.S. dollars fall versus yen also contributing to
gains.

Despite an early quarter sell-off when equity market strength and gains in oil prices briefly led to higher yields, global market uncertainty and volatility
revolving around the June 23 EU referendum in the UK led to a rally in developed government bond markets. In 10-year-equivalent, interest-rate swap
terms, the UK (+4.4%) was among the biggest gainers during the quarter. The British electorate shocked the world by voting to leave the European
Union, one of the richest economic blocs in the world, immediately prompting Prime Minister David Cameron to resign his post and the Bank of
England (BoE) to pledge an additional 250 billion in funds to support financial stability. Ratings agencies subsequently downgraded the UKs credit
score, including Standard & Poors, which cut the nations AAA credit rating by two notches to AA. Unsurprisingly, demand for safe-haven assets also
increased in the Eurozone (+2.3%). Yields began their descent mid-quarter when the European Commission lowered the regions growth and inflation
forecast given continued deflationary pressures, global economic weakness, and uncertainty regarding the upcoming UK EU membership referendum.
With the Brexit vote, the EU lost one of its largest economies, causing European equity markets and bond yields to plunge. Like the BoE, the European
Central Bank (ECB) also pledged to provide additional liquidity if necessary. In the U.S. (+3.0%), the Federal Reserve voted to keep rates steady at its
June 15 meeting, when it also lowered its economic growth forecasts for 2016 and 2017, and signaled that hikes will be more gradual than previously
expected. Fallout from the unexpected Brexit vote subsequently weighed on the possibility of Fed hikes before the end of 2016. Low inflation and
strong local currency concerns prompted the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) to cut rates on May 3 by 25 bps to 1.75%, which, along with global
economic weakness, put downward pressure on Australian yields (+4.2%). Japan (+2.3%) also delivered gains for the quarter, as yields fell to record
lows since the BoJ adopted its negative interest-rate policy (NIRP) in January. Other nations that implement negative interest rate policies were also up
during the quarter, including Sweden (+4.8%), Denmark (+4.2%), and Switzerland (+2.9%). The only emerging government bond market currently in
the investment set, Mexico, rose by 0.3%.

Global yield curves (measured by the difference between 30-year and 2-year swap rates) flattened across the board, with Japanese, Swedish, and
Canadian curves flattening the most.

FX markets endured heavy aftershocks from Brexit as the British pound plunged by 11% to a historic 31-year low versus the U.S. dollar in the days
following the vote, threatening its status as a reserve currency. Though the pound edged higher in the post-Brexit environment, ending the quarter
down 7.0% versus the dollar, investors speculate that the currency will continue to weaken given economic and political uncertainty in the UK. Elevated
volatility caused Swedish kronor and euros to depreciate significantly following the Brexit vote, though, like the pound, they also bounced back in the
final days of the quarter; the krona fell by 4.3% in Q2 while the single-currency fell by 2.5%. The Australian dollar tumbled by 3.2% during the quarter
as market volatility and the RBA rate cut put downward pressure on the Aussie.

Japanese yen strengthened the most in the opportunity set, by +9.6% versus the dollar in Q2, as yen tends to rally during times of market volatility.
Despite taking a brief hit after Brexit, the New Zealand dollar surged by 2.6% in Q2; the Reserve Bank of New Zealand voted to keep rates on hold at
2.25% in June, surprising investors and strengthening the kiwi. Though typically a safe haven during times of market stress, the Swiss franc actually
depreciated by 1.7% during the quarter. In an effort to curb excessive appreciation after the Brexit shock, the Swiss National Bank intervened in the FX
market, depreciating the franc. While the U.S. dollar ended the quarter up by 0.3% according to the Bloomberg Dollar Spot Index, its intra-quarter
moves were noteworthy. The dollar waned early in the quarter when sluggish global economic activity and low domestic inflation prompted the Federal
Reserve to leave rates unchanged. By May, the buck strengthened when Fed officials hinted that the central bank could see two to three hikes this year.
In the weeks leading up to Brexit, however, a dovish Fed statement and an anticipated Remain outcome put downward pressure on the dollar. After
the referendums surprising Leave outcome, the buck promptly reversed course, strengthening when investors demanded safety.

In performance, interest-rate strategies detracted during the quarter. The portfolios active short UK duration position drove losses, followed by losses
provided by the Eurozone steepener position. The portfolios active long Swedish and Australian duration positions partly offset losses.

The currency strategy added value for the quarter due to the portfolios short euro and Swiss franc positions.

In opportunistic strategies, cross-currency basis swap positions detracted as losses from euro cross-currency basis swap positions more than offset gains
from yen cross-currency basis swap positions.

Performance data quoted represents past performance and is not predictive of future performance. Returns are shown after the deduction of management fees, transaction
costs and other expenses, but before custody charges, withholding taxes, and other indirect expenses. The returns assume the reinvestment of dividends and other income.

QUARTERLYATTRIBUTION

The Currency Hedged International Bond Strategy returned +3.5% net of fees in the second quarter, outperforming the J.P. Morgan GBI Global ex
Japan ex U.S. (Hedged) index total return of +3.2% by 0.2%. The yield of the J.P. Morgan GBI Global ex Japan ex U.S. (Hedged) index fell by 31 basis
points during the quarter.

Despite an early quarter sell-off when equity market strength and gains in oil prices briefly led to higher yields, global market uncertainty and volatility
revolving around the June 23 EU referendum in the U.K. led to a rally in developed government bond markets. In 10-year-equivalent, interest-rate
swap terms, the U.K. (+4.4%) was among the biggest gainers during the quarter. The British electorate shocked the world by voting to leave the
European Union, one of the richest economic blocs in the world, immediately prompting Prime Minister David Cameron to resign his post and the
Bank of England (BoE) to pledge an additional 250 billion in funds to support financial stability. Ratings agencies subsequently downgraded the U.K.s
credit score, including Standard & Poors, which cut the nations AAA credit rating by two notches to AA. Unsurprisingly, demand for safe-haven assets
also increased in the Eurozone (+2.3%). Yields began their descent mid-quarter when the European Commission lowered the regions growth and
inflation forecast given continued deflationary pressures, global economic weakness, and uncertainty regarding the upcoming U.K. EU membership
referendum. With the Brexit vote, the EU lost one of its largest economies, causing European equity markets and bond yields to plunge. Like the BoE,
the European Central Bank (ECB) also pledged to provide additional liquidity if necessary. In the U.S. (+3.0%), the Federal Reserve voted to keep rates
steady at its June 15 meeting, when it also lowered its economic growth forecasts for 2016 and 2017, and signaled that hikes will be more gradual than
previously expected. Fallout from the unexpected Brexit vote subsequently weighed on the possibility of Fed hikes before the end of 2016. Low inflation
and strong local currency concerns prompted the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) to cut rates on May 3 by 25 bps to 1.75%, which, along with global
economic weakness, put downward pressure on Australian yields (+4.2%). Japan (+2.3%) also delivered gains for the quarter, as yields fell to record
lows since the BoJ adopted its negative interest-rate policy (NIRP) in January. Other nations that implement negative interest rate policies were also up
during the quarter, including Sweden (+4.8%), Denmark (+4.2%), and Switzerland (+2.9%). The only emerging government bond market currently in
the investment set, Mexico, rose by 0.3%.

Global yield curves (measured by the difference between 30-year and 2-year swap rates) flattened across the board, with Japanese, Swedish, and
Canadian curves flattening the most.

In opportunistic strategies, cross-currency basis swap positions detracted as losses from euro cross-currency basis swap positions more than offset gains
from yen cross-currency basis swap positions.

A small exposure to emerging debt added value during the quarter, thanks to spread tightening on the asset class and positive contributions from both
country selection and security selection.

QUARTERLYATTRIBUTION

The Core Plus Bond Strategy returned +2.7% in the second quarter, outperforming the +2.2% return of its benchmark, the Barclays U.S. Aggregate
index, by 0.5%. Tightening sector spreads and falling U.S. Treasury yields contributed to index gains.

The overall option-adjusted spread of the Barclays U.S. Aggregate index was flat during the quarter, with spreads tightening by as much as 15 basis
points (BBB Credit). Only MBS (+4 basis points), U.S. Agency (+2 basis points), and AAA Credit (1 basis point) spreads widened during the quarter.

U.S. interest rates fell and the U.S. Treasury yield curve flattened during the quarter: the 10-year U.S. Treasury yield fell by 29 basis points to end the
quarter at 1.5%, and the 2 year yield fell by 15 bps to end the quarter at 0.6%.

Despite an early quarter sell-off when equity market strength and gains in oil prices briefly led to higher yields, global market uncertainty and volatility
revolving around the June 23 EU referendum in the U.K. led to a rally in developed government bond markets. In 10-year-equivalent, interest-rate

QUARTERLYATTRIBUTION

The Debt Opportunities Strategy returned +1.6% net of fees in the second quarter of 2016, outperforming the return of the J.P. Morgan U.S. 3 Month
Cash index by 1.3%.

Total returns for securitized products were generally positive in the second quarter. Overall, corporate credit market slightly outperformed structured,
with Investment Grade (IG) finishing +3.5% and High Yield (HY) posting +5.9% in total return. On the base rate side, swap rates sold off marginally
into the middle of the quarter before rallying on post Brexit fears and market uncertainty. Rates were lower by approximately 20 bps (U.S. 5-year),
finishing at 1.01%.

In structured products, excess returns were mostly positive for the quarter. Overall, ABS was modestly positive, with Auto securitizations returning
0.0% to 0.5% excess, and Student Loans returning +0.8% excess. Non-Agency RMBS securities were up in Q2 as we saw the continued theme of credit
burnout within collateral pools and slow but steadily improving fundamentals in a low rate environment. Additionally, many Non-Agency deals
received resolution payments in the Countrywide legal case. Credit Risk Transfer (CRT) deals on residential mortgages rebounded nicely after a slow
Q1 and posted some of the best performance in Q2. In the lower part of the CRT capital structure, non-rated tranches had positive excess return,
posting approximately +5.5% to +7.5%. These positions are very structurally levered, tending to exhibit significantly greater amount of beta than cash
Non-Agency bonds. In Commercial Mortgage Backed Securities (CMBS), spreads rallied off their Q1 wides into quarter end despite the Brexit
volatility. Overall, CMBS finished with approximately +0.8% excess, with AAA cash at +0.6%, and BBB at +1.2%. The Collateralized Loan Obligation
(CLO) market saw similar macro sentiment, as spreads rallied throughout the quarter. As a result, AAA cash returned approximately +1.0% excess
return, and, in the lower part of the capital structure, BBB returned +3.5% and BB +3.1% excess.

At quarter end, 22% of the portfolio was rated AAA, although approximately 34% of the portfolio was rated single-A or better. Approximately 45% of
the portfolio was invested in asset-backed securities (ABS), 24% in mortgage-backed securities (MBS), 13% in commercial mortgage-backed securities
(CMBS), 13% in esoteric ABS, and 5% in cash or cash equivalents.

Note: Ratings are lowest of Moodys, Standard & Poors, Fitch, DBRS, and Kroll. No rating is used if none of the five listed provides a rating.

Performance data quoted represents past performance and is not predictive of future performance. Returns are shown after the deduction of management fees, transaction
costs and other expenses, but before custody charges, withholding taxes, and other indirect expenses. The returns assume the reinvestment of dividends and other income.

QUARTERLYATTRIBUTION

The Fixed Income Hedge Strategy returned +0.4% net of fees in the second quarter of 2016, outperforming its Fixed Income Hedge Blended
Benchmark by 0.3%. Currency selection was responsible for gains, while opportunistic positions and interest-rate strategies detracted.

Despite an early quarter sell-off when equity market strength and gains in oil prices briefly led to higher yields, global market uncertainty and volatility
revolving around the June 23 EU referendum in the U.K. led to a rally in developed government bond markets. In 10-year-equivalent, interest-rate
swap terms, the U.K. (+4.4%) was among the biggest gainers during the quarter. The British electorate shocked the world by voting to leave the
European Union, one of the richest economic blocs in the world, immediately prompting Prime Minister David Cameron to resign his post and the
Bank of England (BoE) to pledge an additional 250 billion in funds to support financial stability. Ratings agencies subsequently downgraded the U.K.s
credit score, including Standard & Poors, which cut the nations AAA credit rating by two notches to AA. Unsurprisingly, demand for safe-haven assets
also increased in the Eurozone (+2.3%). Yields began their descent mid-quarter when the European Commission lowered the regions growth and
inflation forecast given continued deflationary pressures, global economic weakness, and uncertainty regarding the upcoming U.K. EU membership
referendum. With the Brexit vote, the EU lost one of its largest economies, causing European equity markets and bond yields to plunge. Like the BoE,
the European Central Bank (ECB) also pledged to provide additional liquidity if necessary. In the U.S. (+3.0%), the Federal Reserve voted to keep rates
steady at its June 15 meeting, when it also lowered its economic growth forecasts for 2016 and 2017, and signaled that hikes will be more gradual than
previously expected. Fallout from the unexpected Brexit vote subsequently weighed on the possibility of Fed hikes before the end of 2016. Low inflation
and strong local currency concerns prompted the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) to cut rates on May 3 by 25 bps to 1.75%, which, along with global
economic weakness, put downward pressure on Australian yields (+4.2%). Japan (+2.3%) also delivered gains for the quarter, as yields fell to record
lows since the BoJ adopted its negative interest-rate policy (NIRP) in January. Other nations that implement negative interest rate policies were also up
during the quarter, including Sweden (+4.8%), Denmark (+4.2%), and Switzerland (+2.9%). The only emerging government bond market currently in
the investment set, Mexico, rose by 0.3%.

Global yield curves (measured by the difference between 30-year and 2-year swap rates) flattened across the board, with Japanese, Swedish, and
Canadian curves flattening the most.

FX markets endured heavy aftershocks from Brexit as the British pound plunged by 11% to a historic 31-year low versus the U.S. dollar in the days
following the vote, threatening its status as a reserve currency. Though the pound edged higher in the post-Brexit environment, ending the quarter
down 7.0% versus the dollar, investors speculate that the currency will continue to weaken given economic and political uncertainty in the U.K. Elevated
volatility caused Swedish kronor and euros to depreciate significantly following the Brexit vote, though, like the pound, they also bounced back in the
final days of the quarter; the krona fell by 4.3% in Q2 while the single-currency fell by 2.5%. The Australian dollar tumbled by 3.2% during the quarter
as market volatility and the RBA rate cut put downward pressure on the Aussie.

Japanese yen strengthened the most in the opportunity set, by +9.6% versus the dollar in Q2, as yen tends to rally during times of market volatility.
Despite taking a brief hit after Brexit, the New Zealand dollar surged by 2.6% in Q2; the Reserve Bank of New Zealand voted to keep rates on hold at
2.25% in June, surprising investors and strengthening the kiwi. Though typically a safe haven during times of market stress, the Swiss franc actually
depreciated by 1.7% during the quarter. In an effort to curb excessive appreciation after the Brexit shock, the Swiss National Bank intervened in the FX
market, depreciating the franc. While the U.S. dollar ended the quarter up by 0.3% according to the Bloomberg Dollar Spot Index, its intra-quarter
moves were noteworthy. The dollar waned early in the quarter when sluggish global economic activity and low domestic inflation prompted the Federal
Reserve to leave rates unchanged. By May, the buck strengthened when Fed officials hinted that the central bank could see two to three hikes this year.
In the weeks leading up to Brexit, however, a dovish Fed statement and an anticipated Remain outcome put downward pressure on the dollar. After
the referendums surprising Leave outcome, the buck promptly reversed course, strengthening when investors demanded safety.

In performance, interest-rate strategies detracted during the quarter. The portfolios short U.K. duration position drove losses, followed by losses
provided by the Eurozone steepener position. The portfolios long Swedish and Australian duration positions partly offset losses.

The currency strategy added value for the quarter due to the portfolios short euro and Swiss franc positions.

While opportunistic positions were mixed, they net detracted during the quarter. Cross-currency basis swap positions detracted as losses from euro
cross-currency basis swap positions more than offset gains from yen cross-currency basis swap positions. A hybrid options position in European
equities also detracted during the quarter. Partly offsetting losses, swap spread strategies added value as long end swap spreads in the U.S. went less
negative.

QUARTERLYATTRIBUTION

Mean Reversion Strategy delivered a net return of -2.5% during the second quarter of 2016. Performance was positive across fixed income positions
(which added 0.3%), but equity and currency positions detracted from the portfolio (-1.8% and 0.4, respectively).

Today, stocks are for income and bonds are for capital appreciation, Market Chatter, Q2 2016

We are certainly living in an interesting time. Global bond yields are hitting record lows while U.S. equities are registering new highs. Not exactly the
stuff your Economics of Finance 101 courses were made of. For that matter, when do we consider making some adjustments to those text books? After
all, time value of money is about as fundamental a concept to economics as one can find. Yet in Japan and Europe that fundamental concept no longer
applies. The progression of global central bank policy toward ZIRP and NIRP has created many well-flagged distortions, but in our view, the future path
of distortions is ever less clear as policy continues to strip investors ability to invest for income. They say the laws of physics are not clear around black
holes, but because no one has ever been we can only guess and theorize. However, when it comes to long-duration interest rates collapsing to zero and
beyond, we get to experience the black hole of incentives, valuations, and policy. We just cant be sure how these tried and tested concepts work. If
policys intent is to drive the cost of capital to zero, well, shouldnt the return on capital be driven to zero as well? Whats a saver to do? Preserving
capital seems like a pretty good outcome to us, because, after all, risk with no reward doesnt make much sense even around a black hole.

While on the subject of fundamental concepts about markets and their structure, it is worth dwelling for a minute on the concept of discounting risk
and being forward looking. A less fancy way to think about that is to say that the price of a financial asset is information. Absent panics and manias, it
should embody the collective view of investors and thus the discounting of future risks and opportunities. In the post GFC markets that we find
ourselves in, this concept, too, is suspect. After all, trading volumes for just about any financial instrument have fallen, as investors who are not solely
driven by hard-coded models step back from transacting in an environment that seems unlike any other. Practically, what that translates to is that the
marginal trade the marginal price contains less information than before. Through the lens of politics and polling, in the daily referendum of prices
the turnout is low, but the result still stands. Systematic models and traders are explicitly prevented from having views. Rather, they focus on a set of
variables and back tests. If everyone else steps back, eventually, the illusion of the back test may prove to be just that. Fundamentals always reassert
themselves eventually but that horizon may have extended itself further in a world of financial repression.

We remain committed to the tried and true disciplines of valuations, fundamentals, and economics those provide the longest back test of all.

QUARTERLYATTRIBUTION

The Systematic Global Macro Strategy was up 4.2% (net of fees) for the quarter and has returned +5.9% (net of fees) for the year to date.

For the quarter, our currency positions added the most value, contributing over 4%. Strong positive performance was the result of long positions in the
Japanese yen and New Zealand dollar appreciating against short positions in the British pound and U.S. dollar.

Our equity market exposures added 1.5%. A long position in the UK FTSE100 Index and a short position in Japans Nikkei 225 index added value. A
short position in VIX futures also added decent value. Our bond market positions added 0.6%. Long positions in the United States and United
Kingdom gained against a short position in Japan. Our net short in commodities cost 0.5% over the quarter.

The strategy had a very good month in June, adding 8.5% (net of fees, including incentive fees if any). The strategy was up by nearly 4% (net of fees,
based on a representative account), leading into the day of the UK referendum. While the Brexit result sparked waves of risk aversion and heightened
volatility across markets on June 24, our portfolios volatility was well contained. On that day our strategy added 1.2% (net of fees, based on a
representative account), and returns were positive in each day over the remainder of June, bringing total monthly returns to 8.5% (net of fees, including
incentive fees if any). Our currency position added the most value, with long positions in the Japanese yen and New Zealand dollar appreciating against
short positions in the British pound and USD. The stronger yen weighed down the Japanese stock market, held short, which added value as the Nikkei
225 Index slumped 9.6%. Our long position in the UK share market added value as the FTSE 100 Index advanced 4.4% while the British pound fell 8.1%
against the dollar. Additional gains were made from other asset classes during the month.

QUARTERLYATTRIBUTION

The Systematic Global Macro Major Markets Strategy was up 5.3% (net of fees) for the quarter and up 5.8% for the year to date.

The portfolio returned +5.3% in the June quarter. Our currency positions contributed nearly two-thirds of this outperformance from long positions in
the Japanese yen and New Zealand dollar, which appreciated against the British pound and U.S. dollar, held short. Performance from our equity
markets exposure was also positive, mostly due to a long position in the UK FTSE 100 index, which outperformed a short position in Japans Nikkei 225
index. Our bond market positions added value as long positions in the U.S. and U.K. gained against a short position in Japan.

The portfolio had a very good month in June, adding 7.5%. It was up by nearly 3% leading into the day of the U.K. referendum. While the Brexit result
sparked waves of risk aversion and heightened volatility across markets on June 24, the portfolio gained 2.3%, and returns were positive for the rest of
June.

The portfolio holds net long exposures to both equity and bond markets. Among equity markets, the portfolio holds key long positions in the U.K.,
MSCI Emerging Markets index, and the U.S., while our main short position is held in Japan. In bonds, we hold a long position in U.S. 10-year bond
futures and a short in Japanese 10-year bond futures. In currencies, the portfolio holds long positions in the Japanese yen and the New Zealand dollar,
and short positions in the British pound and U.S. dollar.

Performance data quoted represents past performance and is not predictive of future performance. Returns are shown after the deduction of management fees, transaction
costs and other expenses, but before custody charges, withholding taxes, and other indirect expenses. The returns assume the reinvestment of dividends and other income.

QUARTERLYATTRIBUTION

Tactical Opportunities Strategy ended the quarter down 1.0% and up 7.0% for the year, net of fees.

The positive contribution to the long portfolio was driven by Health Care and Consumer Staples. Johnson & Johnson and Medtronics were positive
contributors after reporting strong earnings. British American Tobacco was a top contributor in Consumer Staples whose overseas revenues proved
immune to Brexit fears.

Detractors in the long portfolio were concentrated in Information Technology where Microsoft, Google, and Apple all dragged the portfolio lower.

In the short portfolio, Consumer Discretionary was the largest contributor, taking advantage of weakness in the automotive industry. Health Care and
Information Technology were the top detractors for the quarter.

The portfolios average net exposure for the quarter remained neutral.

BenchmarksandIndices
June30,2016

GMO measures each strategys performance against a specific benchmark or index (each, a Benchmark), although no strategy is managed as an index strategy or index
plus strategy. Actual composition of a strategys portfolio may differ to varying degrees from that of its Benchmark. Indices are not managed and do not pay fees and
expenses. One cannot invest directly in an index. In some cases, a strategys Benchmark differs from the broad based index against which performance is shown in the
strategys prospectus. GMO may change a strategys benchmark from time to time.
