Performance is historical and does not guarantee future results. For more information, please refer to the GIPS composite report found in the documents section.

Please keep in mind that high double-digit returns were primarily achieved during favorable market conditions. You should not expect that such favorable returns can be consistently achieved. A fund's performance, especially for short time periods, should not be the sole factor in making your investment decision.

Market Risk: Stock values fluctuate in response to the activities of individual companies and general market and economic conditions. Growth/Value Investing Risk: Securities that exhibit growth or value characteristics tend to perform differently and shift into and out of favor with investors depending on changes in market and economic sentiment and conditions.

Allspring Managed Account Services (the firm) is a unit within Allspring Global Investments and is responsible for the management and administration of the Allspring Funds Management, LLC, retail separately managed account portfolios (wrap portfolios). Allspring Funds Management acts as a discretionary manager for separately managed accounts ("SMA") and as a non-discretionary model provider in a variety of managed account or wrap fee programs (“MA Programs”) sponsored by third party investment advisers, broker-dealers, or other financial services firms (a “Sponsor”). When acting as non-discretionary model provider, Allspring Funds Management responsibility is limited to providing non-discretionary investment recommendations (in the form of model portfolios) to the Sponsor. The Sponsor may use these recommendations in connection with its management of MA Program accounts. In these “model-based” programs, the Sponsor serves as the investment manager and maintains trade implementation responsibility.
