2011 Model Portfolio performance

The Brinker Fixed Income Advisor was named among the top performing investment letters over the past 5 years in the December 2011 Hulbert Financial Digest. Our Model Portfolio performance in 2011 was helped by our decision in May to reduce our exposure to convertible bonds and high yield bonds and reinvest the proceeds in the DoubleLine Total Return bond fund. Our Tax-Exempt portfolio rebounded smartly from the late-2010 municipal bond selloff and posted strong returns in 2011.

The following table lists the one, two, three, and five year total return for each of our Model Portfolios through December 31, 2011. The five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) is also provided for each portfolio.
