*The selection of securities displayed is not based on performance criteria. Holdings shown are as of 12/31/2015 and are a subset of the overall Strategy. Client portfolios will typically hold 40-50 stocks which are subject to change without notice. Sample holdings are for illustrative purposes only. Holdings within each sector are sorted alphabetically, and half the total number of holdings within each (rounding down in the case of an odd total number of sector holdings) are displayed. No more than three holdings are shown. If a sector has three or fewer holdings, all are displayed. The Wellesley Investment Partners Dividend Growth Strategy consists primarily of large-cap U.S. equities, and therefore utilizes the S&P 500 index for comparative purposes as it is a widely recognized benchmark often used to compare investment strategies consisting primarily of large-cap U.S. equities.
