  • 2011* performance is from the period March 14, 2011 to Dec 31, 2011. The same period was used for both Motiwala Capital and S&P 500.
  • 2011 performance is based on two client accounts which were managed similarly. An account that was opened and closed within a few months in 2011 was excluded. Another account had positions and position sizes unique to that account (at the request of the client) and was ignored from the 2011 computation.
  • Motiwala Capital performance for each year is based on the aggregate performance of all client accounts ( existing and new accounts opened during the year at various times.)
  • S&P 500 performance includes dividends but does not reflect any fees.
  • Motiwala Capital performance is computed on a before-tax time-weighted return (TWR) basis and are net of all paid management fees and brokerage costs.

  • Performance of individual accounts may vary depending upon the timing of their investment, the effects of additions, and the impact of withdrawals from their account.
