Gross performance does not reflect the application of advisory fees and (for pooled funds we operate) expenses and reflects the reinvestment of dividends and other earnings. Net returns are calculated by deducting from the gross performance a model fee that is greater than the actual fees and expenses charged across all accounts invested in the strategy. Bell Asset Management manages money in the strategy across the spectrum of advisory customers, ranging from retail investors through to large institutional clients. The highest rate charged to any account managed under this strategy applies to the Bell Global Equities Fund, an Australian managed investment scheme open to non-institutional investors. The net returns for the Bell Global Equities Fund are available by clicking  here. Actual investment advisory fees incurred by clients may vary depending on, amongst other things, the applicable fee schedule and portfolio size. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future performance.
