5T WEALTH MANAGEMENT manages accounts with various histories and investment objectives. Various accounts may be managed differently from time to time.
Paul Krsek is the acting CEO of 5T Wealth Management working with the investment committee in the establishment and selection of client portfolio strategies. Krsek may make reference to model portfolios and investment strategies including but not limited to Dividend Diamonds and Mendocino. Krsek is responsible for making all trading and management decisions for all client accounts being managed according to specific portfolio models and strategies.

Not all accounts managed by 5T WEALTH MANAGEMENT are "modeled" accounts. We strongly urge our clients to understand which model, if any, are being used to manage their accounts.
From time to time 5T WEALTH MANAGEMENT receives requests from clients to purchase securities that are not included in the model portfolio to which they are assigned. Effective May 24, 2006, 5T WEALTH MANAGEMENT has encouraged clients to hold such securities in a separate account for the client. Because 5T WEALTH MANAGEMENT is a "fee only" registered investment advisor" it charges its normal management fee for monitoring such securities in the separate accounts in which they are held.
5T WEALTH MANAGEMENT makes every effort to exclude securities that are 'requested by the client' from the modeled portfolio accounts.
The investment objectives of various accounts and models may be substantially different from one another. Therefore topics or investments mentioned in ELLUMINATION may or may not apply to specific managed accounts and/or models.
Trades or adjustments to accounts mentioned in ELLUMINATION may or may not happen in every account managed by portfolio managers at 5T WEALTH MANAGEMENT.
If you are not satisfied with the investment results in your account it is your responsibility to inform Krsek or Quish to discuss possible changes that can be made to the account to accommodate and satisfy your needs.
The assets held in managed accounts at 5T WEALTH MANAGEMENT may include stocks, bonds, cash, commodities, foreign exchange or mutual funds or exchange traded funds (ETF's), money market accounts or limited partnerships that represent the same. They are subject to market fluctuation and the potential for losses. The assets are not insured. The value and income produced by these investment products may fluctuate, so that an investor may get back less than they initially invested.
The portfolio managers at 5T WEALTH MANAGEMENT do not guarantee results.
Past performance should not be considered an indicator of potential future performance. If you do not consider yourself suitable, either emotionally or financially, to experience volatility and/or losses in financial markets, you should not invest.
Model accounts and strategy performance quoted in the ELLUMINATION Newsletter and elsewhere to clients do not represent actual results accruing to individual accounts. Simple annual return does not represent “time weighted return” as reported individually to clients in their quarterly reports prepared using Orion and other performance report firms who are external service providers. The reports provided via Orion and other providers are for informational purposes only and clients are urged to carefully review and compare it with the separately delivered custodian statement. The information is based on pricing information provided by third party sources and is believed reliable, but its timeliness, accuracy and completeness are not guaranteed.
This document is for information purposes only and it should not be regarded as an offer to sell or as a solicitation of an offer to buy any securities or other instruments mentioned in it.
