Is there ANYTHING on THIS report that even REMOTELY relates to: “I make the most of the one life you have by confidently achieving the goals you personally value, without undue sacrifice to your lifestyle and avoiding any unnecessary investment risks.”

Your Conversation… “Last quarter we were a little behind your benchmark due to the overweighting in value stocks that occurred due to their strong performance in the prior quarter. Despite that, we are still ahead of your benchmark YTD, for the last year and also the trailing 5 years and only slightly behind your benchmark for the last 3 years and since inception. Therefore…??? You keep saying “YOUR BENCHMARK”… but how did it end up as “my benchmark?”

8 ©Copyright Wealthcare Capital Management, a division of Financeware, Inc All rights reserved P r o v i d i n g W E A L T H C A R E PAGE 8 Sample Performance Report: Last QuarterYTDSince Inception Current Value$5,050,000$5,050,000$5,050,000 Starting Value:$5,000,000$4,800,000$2,000,000 Net Contributions/(withdrawals)$0$0$1,500,000 $ Gain/(Loss)$50,000$250,000$1,550,000 Total Return in %1.00%5.21%44.29% Custom Benchmark %4.88%49.52% Trailing Annualized Returns:Your PortfolioCustom Benchmark 1 Difference 1 Year31.65%29.92%+1.73% 3 Years1.07%1.17%-0.10% 5 Years3.20%2.99%+0.21% Inception (6.5 years)5.80%6.38%-0.58% 1 Custom Benchmark Allocation: WHAT Does that mean to me???

Despite that, we are still ahead of your benchmark YTD, for the last year and also the trailing 5 years and only slightly behind your benchmark for the last 3 years and since inception. Therefore…??? You keep saying “YOUR BENCHMARK”… but how did it end up as “my benchmark?” Since a performance report constantly measures the difference between what actually happened in the client’s portfolio compared to “their benchmark”, shouldn’t the client really VALUE the benchmark? How closely do they relate to it? How was it determined?

9 ©Copyright Wealthcare Capital Management, a division of Financeware, Inc All rights reserved P r o v i d i n g W E A L T H C A R E PAGE 9 TRUE or FALSE Determining “their benchmark”: Most clients, when I first meet with them and ask about their financial goals say something like: “What is really important to me, is to have a portfolio that over at least a 5-10 year time horizon produces a greater mean return with less standard deviation than a passive index blend comprised of 37% large cap core, 18% small cap core, 4.5% to both large and mid cap value & growth, 18% small cap core, 2% small cap value & growth, 13% foreign and 10% intermediate bonds.” ? THEN WHY IS THAT WHAT YOU ARE MEASURING?

10 ©Copyright Wealthcare Capital Management, a division of Financeware, Inc All rights reserved P r o v i d i n g W E A L T H C A R E PAGE 10 TRUE or FALSE Because that was the most efficient portfolio for their risk tolerance?: Most clients, when asked about their risk tolerance say something like: “My risk tolerance is based on the standard deviation of the portfolio returns and provided the portfolio has low tracking error relative to its style and market cap benchmarks, I can tolerate a standard deviation of 17.7%.” ? Yeah…that’s how they “connect” to “THEIR BENCHMARK”

11 ©Copyright Wealthcare Capital Management, a division of Financeware, Inc All rights reserved P r o v i d i n g W E A L T H C A R E PAGE 11 TRUE or FALSE Actually, my clients do not really understand standard deviation, but THEY DO understand downside risk: Most clients, when asked about their risk tolerance say something like: “Measured at the 95 th %-tile one year downside risk, I can tolerate a loss in my portfolio of 13.47%. Of course, I understand there is a 1 in 20 chance of doing worse than this in any one year and my downside tolerance contemplates the 1 in 50 chance of a 20% decline and a 1 in 100 chance of a 31% decline.” ? Do they (or you) understand that downside risk can nearly double between the 95 th & 97 th percentile? (that’s a 5 in 100 chance versus a 3 in 100 chance)

12 ©Copyright Wealthcare Capital Management, a division of Financeware, Inc All rights reserved P r o v i d i n g W E A L T H C A R E PAGE 12 TRUE or FALSE I focus my performance reporting on a conservative absolute return that achieves their goals… Mr. Client, you need an 8% return to achieve your life goals and the portfolio allocation I recommend has a 90% chance of exceeding that return over the next 30 years… Of course, there is a 45% chance you will do less than than over the next year, 39% you’ll be under that over the next 2 years, 38% you’ll be under after the next 3 years, 34% under after the next 5 years, and 26% chance you will do worse than that after the next 10 years. That’s why we are “long-term” investors. ? Did you know there was better than a 1 in 3 chance of doing worse over 5 years?

13 ©Copyright Wealthcare Capital Management, a division of Financeware, Inc All rights reserved P r o v i d i n g W E A L T H C A R E PAGE 13 With a portfolio that has a 90% chance of exceeding an 8% return over thirty years, the 63 rd %-tile might produce DOUBLE the ending value… All you need to do is get the client to “stick with it long term” Like 15 years or so… 8%

14 ©Copyright Wealthcare Capital Management, a division of Financeware, Inc All rights reserved P r o v i d i n g W E A L T H C A R E PAGE 14 Connecting to clients… This? - Target allocation to 37% Large, 19% Small, X% Value, Y% Growth? - Efficient portfolio for standard deviation tolerance? - Efficient portfolio for 95 th % -tile downside risk tolerance? - Specific return along with 10 or more years of patience? - AND, assuming YOUR benchmark is somehow tied to their goals, the client was clairvoyant so they never change their goals or priorities and everything in their life AND the markets go according to plan? Or This? - Comfortable Retirement - Educate Jr. - Travel - Buy a beach house - Golf - AND, contemplating their life and the markets may not go perfectly according to plan and their goals and priorities will change over their life

17 ©Copyright Wealthcare Capital Management, a division of Financeware, Inc All rights reserved P r o v i d i n g W E A L T H C A R E PAGE 17 Are Any Decisions Currently Needed? >>Where they currently stand based on the markets & their goals AS LAST DEFINED >>What to watch out for… Potential future decisions based on market results and THEIR choices

18 ©Copyright Wealthcare Capital Management, a division of Financeware, Inc All rights reserved P r o v i d i n g W E A L T H C A R E PAGE 18 Are These The Right Goals? >>Does this still make the most of your only life?

19 ©Copyright Wealthcare Capital Management, a division of Financeware, Inc All rights reserved P r o v i d i n g W E A L T H C A R E PAGE 19 Are we still “spending” the lowest priorities? >>Still retire later and compromise estate to reduce risk? >>Still retire later and compromise estate to keep savings low for golf? >>Still reduce estate to retire a bit earlier? >>Still take more risk, retire later and compromise estate to spend more & travel?

20 ©Copyright Wealthcare Capital Management, a division of Financeware, Inc All rights reserved P r o v i d i n g W E A L T H C A R E PAGE 20 “But Dave, I’ve been doing quarterly reviews with clients for 15 years and they HARDLY EVER talk about that kind of stuff!” REALLY? Honestly??? No Kidding? I can’t imagine why… Do you think that is because “that stuff” is not really all that important to them? Or, do you think it may have something to do with the performance review agenda, YOU SET…? And the content of all the reports you go over? LOOK AT YOUR PERFORMANCE/PORTFOLIO REPORTS – WHERE IS THERE ANYTHING THAT WOULD FACILITATE A DISCUSSION OF GOALS AND PRIORITIES!!!

21 ©Copyright Wealthcare Capital Management, a division of Financeware, Inc All rights reserved P r o v i d i n g W E A L T H C A R E PAGE 21 Maybe my experience is weird and the clients of advisors that I’ve been doing this with are strange… Client of advisor – August ’03 – Designed and accepted recommendations Sept – ’03: Decided to sell 1999 Porsche Carrera for a new Maserati – New Advice Nov – ’03: Unplanned two week trip to Italy – New Advice Dec – ’03: Portfolio up 20%+, worried about market correction – New Advice Jan – ’04: Wants to join Country Club and buy second home – New Advice This client’s future comfort zone has not remained the same for more than TWO MONTHS!! What do you think is more likely? This client is very atypical, because most clients make up their minds and stick exactly according to plan, or… This client is fairly typical and the advice we are giving is atypical?
