From discussions with the PRI, we understand that for this indicator the market breakdown percent of AUM for developed and emerging markets is a percent of fair market value (FMV). Cash and other receivables do not have a classification until invested. Therefore, our market breakdown is based off each of our funds' FMV. We are categorizing our market breakdown based on the geographic exposure of the asset.
