If you hold a Limited Partnership (LP), Direct Participation Program (DPP), or non-traded Real Estate Investment Trust (non-traded REIT) in a non-IRA account or have designated a beneficiary on the LP, DPP, or non-traded REIT or have registered the LP, DPP, or non-traded REIT as a Transfer on Death account, these ownership and beneficiary records are maintained at the transfer agent and not at Ameriprise Financial Services, Inc.

If you hold a Hedge Fund, during the valuation period, the unit price of your Hedge Fund Offering is an estimated value based on the dollar amount invested. The number of shares you own in the fund will be determined at the end of the valuation period. See your prospectus for additional information.

During the purchase period, the purchase amount for certain products, for example annuities, may not be accurately reflected in the total account value.

Valuation of Alternative Investments: Any limited partnerships (LPs), hedge fund offerings (HFOs), non-traded real estate investment trusts (REITs), non-traded business development companies (BDCs), non-traded closed-end funds, real estate private placement (REPPs), tenant-in-common real estate securities (1031s), managed futures funds (MFFs), private equity offerings or other alternative investments (collectively, "Alternative Investments"), that are not listed on a national exchange are generally illiquid because no formal trading market exists for these securities. The values for such Alternative Investments may be different from the purchase price and may not necessarily be realized if the issuer liquidates the security or if you sell some or all of your positions. The valuation listed for such Alternative Investments is either the initial offering price or an estimated value, both of which have been provided by the issuer. Other than the initial offering price, the value of the positions you hold represent estimates of your interest in the net assets of the program, and are reflected in the total value of your account shown herein. In limited circumstances, generally where the position has been purchased through another financial institution, the valuation may be provided by an independent third party pricing agent. Each issuer of an Alternative Investment or third party pricing agent may have a different method of valuation, and may apply various methods of valuation throughout the life of the investment. Generally, the factors considered include, but are not limited to: actual or estimated property or securities values, capitalization rates, acquisition costs, current and or future cash flows, activity in an informal secondary market, or overall performance. If the value of the positions are reflected as N/A, pricing information is not available. For publicly registered companies, the valuation methodology is described in the issuer's annual report and other current periodic reports, which are available to you. For unregistered products/private placements, contact the managing general partner or company for further information about valuation. The number of units owned has been provided by the management of each program and may not necessarily reflect activity after the initial purchase.

For a period of time up to 150 days following the second anniversary of the breaking of escrow for an offering, a non-traded REIT and/or direct participation program sponsor may use a net investment methodology to calculate a per share estimated value. IMPORTANT - If the net investment methodology is used, part of your distribution will likely include a return of capital. Any distribution that represents a return of capital reduces the estimated per share value shown on your account statement. Please review the non-traded REIT’s or direct participation program’s most recent annual report and other current periodic report for an explanation of the method by which the value was developed and the date of valuation. Non-traded REITs and other direct participation programs are not listed on a securities exchange, are generally illiquid, and even if a client is able to sell the securities, the price received may be less than the per share estimated value provided in the account statement.
