Lisanti is strictly an investment management firm. The firm does not sell annuities, insurance, stocks, bonds, mutual funds, limited partnerships, or other commissioned products.

Refer to Investment Discretion for additional information on Conditions for Managing Accounts. Lisanti’s small cap growth strategy invests in the equity securities of smaller, rapidly growing U.S. and foreign companies whose equities are traded on U.S. stock exchanges. Lisanti focuses primarily on seeking to maximize capital appreciation for its Clients. Given its focus, under certain market conditions, a significant portion of Lisanti’s strategy can be invested in companies that have newly come public (“Initial Public Offerings” or “IPOs”). Due to the volatile nature of smaller, high growth issues and the risks involved when investing in these types of securities and strategies, the actual return of a Client’s account likely will fluctuate and at any point in time be worth more or less than the amount originally invested. Refer to Methods of Analysis, Investment Strategy, and Risk of Loss for additional information regarding Lisanti’s investment strategy. Lisanti’s
SMID Cap growth strategy utilizes the same investment process as the Firm’s Small Cap Growth strategy, but has a higher range of market capitalization stocks in which it invests.
