Woodley Farra Manion Portfolio Management's (WFM) investment strategies are generally long-term in nature. However, the firm's investment strategies may include short-term purchases depending on the individual needs and objectives of the clientand whether the investment meets the objective in a short time frame. WFM typically provides advice on individual stocks and bonds. In some instances, they may utilize Treasuries or municipal securities, bank CDs, and preferred securities. WFM builds a portfolio of individual stocks consisting of 25-30 companies in several different industries that provides diversification and exposure to the growth of the world economy. Stocks are generally of companies with a market-cap of at least $1 billion at the time of original purchase. These companies are selected for their financial strength, larger size, prospect for growing sales and earnings, and because they appear undervalued given their strength and prospects. Stocks paying dividends are also emphasized. For the fixed income portion of a client’s portfolio, WFM uses at least A-rated bonds, FDIC insured bank CDs and preferred securities of financially solid companies. These securities are laddered so that there are maturities in most years to protect against rising interest rates.

Trust Investment & Advisors's (TIA) investment strategy determines an appropriate asset allocation for each client and utilizes their model equity and fixed income portfolios. The investment objective of TIA’s Value Equity Portfolio is to purchase stocks of companies selling below their intrinsic business value. TIA looks companies that are financially strong with better than average returns on capital. In addition, the firm believe companies in their portfolio should pay at least a minimal level of dividends with a goal of having a dividend yield exceeding that of the market. The investment objective of TIA’s Income Equity Portfolio is to invest in companies having a high current yield with a growing stream of dividend income. TIA performs their own fundamental research, utilizing a leading financial database to screen for potential purchase candidates meeting predetermined criteria. Typically, the portfolio consists of a well-diversified portfolio of 25 to 30 stocks. TIA may use common stock substitutes such as preferred stock or convertible debt in certain situations, though this is not a common practice. TIA maintains and monitors diversification guidelines on both a company and industry basis. The firm has a policy of staying fully invested at all times and does not try to time the market.^
