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

Performance shown prior to August 1, 2018 represents results achieved by the Empiric LT Equity Team prior to joining Allspring.

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. Management Risk: Investment decisions, techniques, and analyses implemented by the manager may not lead to expected returns of the team. 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. Focused Portfolio Risk: Changes in the value of a small number of issuers are likely to have a larger impact on a strategy’s net asset value than if the strategy held a greater number of issuers.

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.
