Given my financial situation, should I choose an investment advisory service? Why or why not?
How will you choose investments to recommend to me?
What is your relevant experience, including your licenses, education and other qualifications? What do you
these qualifications mean?
Item 3. Fees, Costs, Conflicts, and Standard of Conduct
What fees will I pay?
Our advisory fee terms vary depending on the advisory agreement. Separately managed account clients generally
pay an annual investment management fee of 1% per annum on the first $15 million managed by us and 0.80%
on all assets over $15 million. The management fee is calculated following the close of the quarter by applying
the management free prescribed in Schedule A of the investment management agreement to the average daily
market value of the portfolio and will be prorated for partial quarters. Therefore, the more assets in the accounts
we manage for you, the more you will pay in fees, and therefore we have an incentive to encourage you to
increase assets in your accounts. We also manage affiliated private funds where we have an economic interest.
Should you become an investor in our affiliated private funds, you may pay management fees pursuant to the
applicable funds’ governing documents in addition to your management fees paid pursuant to your investment
Brokerage commissions, transaction fees, and other related costs and expenses are exclusive of and in addition
to the advisory fee. We do not receive any portion of these commissions, fees, and costs. Other fees and costs
you will pay will be outlined in the applicable advisory agreement.
You will pay fees and costs whether you make or lose money on your investments. Fees and costs will reduce
any amount of money you make on your investments over time. Please make sure you understand what fees and
costs you are paying. Read more about our fees starting on page 5 (Item 5) of the Brochure. Your specific fee
schedule can be found in your advisory agreement.
Help me understand how these fees and costs might affect my investments. If I give you $10,000 to invest,
now much will go to fees and costs, and how much will be invested for me?
How might your conflicts of interest affect me, and how will you address them?
What are your legal obligations to me when acting as my investment adviser? How else does your firm make
money and what conflicts of interest do you have?
When we act as your investment adviser, we have to act in your best interest and not put our interest ahead of
yours. At the same time, the way we make money could create conflicts of interest (as listed above). We may
invest your assets in pooled investment vehicles controlled and advised by an affiliate of Port Capital where we
may or may not charge a management fee for your investments into such pooled investment vehicles.
Read more about our conflicts of interest and how we manage them in our Brochure starting on page 7 (Item 8).
How do your financial professionals make money?
Your financial professional receives total compensation consisting of a base salary and variable compensation.
Total compensation takes into account market rate for the role and expertise as well as overall revenue, new
assets, retained assets and contributions to our culture and business strength. Payment of incentive compensation
and firm profit creates a conflict of interest for your financial professional.
Item 4. Disciplinary History
Do you or your financial professionals have legal or disciplinary history?
No. Visit www.investor.gov/CRS for a free and simple search tool to learn more.
As a financial professional, do you have any disciplinary history? For what type of conduct?
