Important Disclosures
The “Financial Times 300 Top Registered Investment Advisers” is an independent listing (“The FT 300”) produced annually by the Financial Times. “FT” and “Financial Times” are trademarks of The Financial Times Ltd. (“FT”). FT is not affiliated with Cardinal Capital Management, Inc. (“Cardinal”). The FT 300 is presented as “an elite group,” not a competitive ranking of one to 300. Cardinal applied for consideration, and the result was independently granted. The results are not based upon information or opinions of participating Registered Investment Advisers’ (“RIA”) clients. Therefore, inclusion on The FT 300 is not representative of participating RIAs’ clients’ experiences. By considering the “SEC compliance record,” eligibility to appear on The FT 300, FT seeks to ensure that a participating RIA has an established and significant history and record free from regulatory sanctions. The FT caps the number of companies from any one state. The cap is roughly based on the distribution of millionaires across the United States. The FT 300 is based on data gathered from RIAs, regulatory disclosures, FT’s research, and/or research conducted on FT’s behalf by “Ignites Distribution Research,” a subsidiary of FT that provides business intelligence on the asset management industry. FT indicates that the methodology used to evaluate inclusion on The FT 300 is quantifiable and objective, and that the participating RIAs had no subjective input in the analysis. To the best of Cardinal’s knowledge: FT does not include RIAs on The FT 300 if the ratings are not statistically valid with respect to any RIA; and there are no facts that would call into question the validity of the inclusion on The FT 300 or the appropriateness of Cardinal’s advertising the same. Cardinal may pay a fee to FT, an affiliate, or an unaffiliated third party in exchange for plaques or article reprints commemorating the designation. While Cardinal would pay this fee after receiving the designation and not as a condition precedent to receiving it, the fact that Cardinal pays any fee with respect to its receipt of the designation should be considered if such designation is a factor in a client or prospective client’s evaluation of whether to initially to engage or continue to engage Cardinal for investment advisory services. Inclusion on The FT 300 is not indicative of Cardinal’s future performance, or any future performance pertaining to its clients’ investments; should not be construed by a client or prospective client as a guarantee that they will experience a certain level of results if Cardinal is engaged or continues to be engaged to provide investment advisory services; and should not be construed as a current or past endorsement of Cardinal by any of its clients. Other information about The FT 300 list is available here: https://www.ft.com/content/a07f2b38-4d54-11e8-97e4-13afc22d86d4. All investment strategies have the potential for profit or loss. Different types of investments involve varying degrees of risk, and there can be no assurance that the future performance of any specific investment or investment strategy (including those undertaken or recommended by Cardinal), will be profitable or equal any historical performance level(s).
