Investment Discretion. ‌ Upon receiving written authorization from the client in our standard client agreement, Creative Planning provides discretionary investment advisory services for client accounts. When discretionary authority is granted, we will have the authority to determine the type of securities and the amount of securities that can be bought or sold for the client portfolio without obtaining the client’s consent for each transaction. We may elect to purchase bonds through bond brokers in order to obtain a better price for the client and then have the bonds delivered into the client's brokerage account. This practice is called "trading away". This is the only case in which we select a broker to be used without specific client consent. The client’s primary broker/dealer-custodian typically charges the client a transaction fee for "trading away" through other brokers. For clients for whom a Sub-Advisor has been engaged, the Sub-Advisor will have discretionary authority to buy, sell, exchange, and otherwise trade securities within the client account. The investment strategies of the Sub- Advisor will be disclosed in their Disclosure Brochure (ADV Part 2A). In limited situations, a client will be allowed to grant trading authorization on a non-discretionary basis. In these cases, we will be required to contact you prior to implementing changes in your account. Therefore, you will be contacted and required to accept or reject our investment recommendations including: • The security being recommended • The number of shares or units • Whether to buy or sell Once the above factors are agreed upon, we will be responsible for making decisions regarding the timing of buying or selling an investment and the price at which the investment is bought or sold. If your accounts are managed on a non-discretionary basis, you need to know that if you are not able to be reached or are slow to respond to our request, it can have an adverse impact on the timing of trade implementations and we may not achieve an optimal trading price. With respect to our Retirement Plan Services, described above, Creative Planning, at the request of a plan sponsor (or plan participant in the case of managed asset allocation models), may be granted limited discretionary authority to select and replace investment alternatives for the plan (or to allocate, reallocate and rebalance model portfolios for plan participants). When such plans are covered by Title I of ERISA, Creative Planning has agreed to provide such...

Investment Discretion. Hyas Group has received discretionary authority from a few clients at the outset of the advisory relationship to select the identity and amount of securities to be bought or sold. In all cases, however, such discretion is to be exercised in a manner consistent with the stated investment objectives for the particular client account. When selecting securities and determining amounts, Hyas Group observes the investment policies, limitations and restrictions of the clients for which it advises. For registered investment companies, Hyas Group’s authority to trade securities may also be limited by certain federal securities and tax laws that require diversifications of investments and favor the holding of investments once made. Investment guidelines and restrictions must be provided to Hyas Group in writing. Item 17 - Voting Client Securities Hyas Group provides investment management services to clients that include, among others, corporate and public pension plans, foundations, and endowments. Unless otherwise stated in the client agreement, Hyas does not vote proxies for clients. For those clients over which Hyas has discretion and therefore has proxy voting authority, Hyas considers proxy voting an important part of those management services. As such, Hyas seeks to vote the proxies of mutual funds and/or securities held by clients in the best interest of those clients. Hyas believes the best interests of clients are served by voting proxies in a way that maximizes long term shareholder value. Therefore, the investment professionals responsible for voting proxies have the discretion to make the best decision given the individual facts and circumstances of each issue. Proxy issues are evaluated on their merits and considered in the context of the professional’s knowledge of a mutual fund or company, its current management, management’s past record and Hyas’s general position on the issue. As the management of a portfolio company is responsible for its day-to-day operations, Hyas believes that management, subject to the oversight of the relevant board of directors, is often in the best position to make decisions that serve the interest of shareholders. However, Hyas votes against management on proposals where it perceives a conflict may exist between management and client interests, such as those that may insulate management or diminish shareholder rights. Hyas Group also votes against management in other cases where the facts and circumstances indicate that the...
