Equity and Fixed Income AUM Benchmark Outperformance Note: For the period ending December 31, 2014, the percentage of total firm equity and fixed income Assets Under Management (“AUM”) that outperformed the benchmark on 10-yr; 5-yr and 3-yr basis was as follows: Total Equity and Fixed Income AUM: 10-year: 78% ; 5-year: 42%; and 3-year: 43%; Total Equity AUM: 10-year: 80% 5-year: 29%; and 3-year: 26%; and Total Fixed Income AUM: 10-year: 77%; 5-year: 63%; and 3-year: 67%. Firm equity and fixed income Assets Under Management (“AUM”) outperformance figures are based upon the aggregate assets for all Neuberger Berman LLC and Neuberger Berman Fixed Income LLC traditional equity and fixed income strategies that are included in the firm’s institutional separate account (“ISA”), managed account/wrap (“MAG”) and private asset management/high net worth (“PAM”) composites. The results are based on the overall performance of each individual investment strategy against its respective strategy benchmark, and results are asset weighted so strategies with the largest amount of assets under management have the largest impact on the results. As of 12/31/2014, eight equity teams/strategies accounted for approximately 53% of the total firm equity (PAM, ISA and MAG combined) assets reflected, and eight strategies accounted for approximately 57% of the total firm fixed income (PAM, ISA and MAG combined) assets reflected. The performance of the individual PAM equity teams/strategies is generally shown as a supplemental exhibit to the PAM Equity Composite. The respective ISA, MAG and PAM composite reports, as well as the PAM Management Team supplemental performance exhibits are available upon request. Individual strategies may have experienced negative performance during certain periods of time. Hedge fund, private equity and other private investment vehicle assets are not reflected in the AUM and product outperformance results shown. AUM outperformance for ISA, PAM and MAG strategies is based on gross of fee returns. Gross of fee returns do not reflect the deduction of investment advisory fees and other expenses. If such fees and expenses were reflected, AUM outperformance results would be lower. Investing entails risk, including possible loss of principal. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
Private Equity Outperformance Note: The performance information includes all funds, both commingled and custom, managed by NB Alternatives Advisers LLC with vintage years of 2002 – 2012, with the exception of a closed-end, public investment company registered under the laws of Guernsey. Percentages are asset-weighted, calculated as the total invested capital of the funds whose performance exceeds their respective benchmarks divided by the total invested capital of all funds with vintage years of 2002 through 2012. The Cambridge Secondary Index was used for secondary-focused funds, the Thomson Reuters Buyout Benchmark was used for co-investment focused funds and the Cambridge Fund of Funds Index was used for commingled fund of funds and NB custom fund of fund portfolios.
