Client securities are segregated from broker-dealer securities, in compliance with the SEC’s customer protection rule.

This is a legal requirement for all broker-dealers.

The first $500,000 of coverage (including $100,000 on cash holdings) is provided by the Securities Investor

Protection Corporation (SIPC).

Custodians purchase an additional insurance policy through London Underwriters (with Lloyd’s of London

Syndicates as the Lead Underwriter).

SIPC insures the assets held in brokerage accounts if the brokerage firm fails. SIPC does not protect investors against

investment decline or loss.

Performance Disclosures

Delta Investment Management offers several investment strategies to clients. Our primary tactical strategies are Delta Tactical Sanctuary, Delta Tactical Good Harbor and Delta Tactical Treasury Bond. Delta Investment Management, LLC has engaged the services of sub advisors: Sanctuary LLC, Good Harbor Financial, LLC, and System Research LLC for the purpose of determining the purchase and sale of securities for the Delta Tactical Sanctuary strategy, the Delta Tactical Good Harbor strategy, and Delta Tactical Treasury Bond strategy, respectively. The performance information is provided by Sanctuary LLC, Good Harbor, LLC and System Research LLC. Separately managed accounts opened with Delta Investment Management as part of the Delta Tactical Sanctuary strategy are managed by Sanctuary Wealth Advisors. Separately managed accounts opened with Delta Investment Management as part of the Delta Tactical Good Harbor strategy are managed by Good Harbor Financial. Separately managed accounts opened with Delta Investment Management as part of the Delta Tactical Treasury Bond strategy are managed in accordance with signals provided by System Research.

The performance information provided is net performance of representative accounts in the strategies and is measured against the S&P 500 Total Return Index. Composite returns are presented net of foreign withholding tax on dividends, interest, and capital gains where applicable.

Sanctuary Wealth Advisors, Good Harbor Financial and System Research are registered investment advisers.

The U.S. Dollar is the currency used to express performance. Returns are presented net of management fees and include the reinvestment of all income. Performance was calculated using actual management fees. The annual composite dispersion is an asset-weighted standard deviation calculated for the accounts in the composite the entire year. Additional information regarding the policies for calculating and reporting returns is available upon request.

The investment management fee schedule is 2% on the first $100,000 to $1,000,000, 1.75% on the next $1,000,000, and 1.50% on accounts above $2,000,000.

Limitations: The actual performance experienced by any individual client may differ from the performance shown as a result of the client’s being subject to an alternative fee structure and various other factors. The performance results reflect investments for a limited period of time and therefore do not reflect performance in all economic or market cycles. While the performance was generated with investment philosophies and methodologies, future investments will be made under different economic and market conditions and may be in different positions and instruments.

It should not be assumed that clients will in the future experience returns, if any, comparable to those presented in this presentation. Individual account results may vary. Past performance is not indicative of future results. Investment losses are possible.

Index Data: The index data presented do not reflect the performance of instruments or strategies that the Delta tactical strategies pursue. The S&P 500 Total Return Index is a broad-based unmanaged index of 500 U.S. stocks that is intended to reflect the risk/return characteristics of the U.S. large-capitalization equity market. This data is included only to provide some indication of the performance of U.S. securities markets generally during the periods for which the performance data are presented. The index is unmanaged and diversified (across companies, industries and sectors) securities indices. Performance data for the index (which Delta Investment Management obtained from publicly-available sources) reflects reinvestment of income but does not reflect the deduction of any transaction or management fees or costs. Returns for the Delta tactical strategies are net of investment management fees.
