Disclosure: The views expressed in this commentary are subject to change based on market and other conditions. These documents may contain certain statements that may be deemed forward‐looking statements. Please note that any such statements are not guarantees of any future performance and actual results or developments may differ materially from those projected. Any projections, market outlooks, or estimates are based upon certain assumptions and should not be construed as indicative of actual events that will occur. Past performance shown is not indicative of future results, which could differ substantially.

The simulated performance shown was created by Ashland, applying historical LNG shipping stock market cycles to present market prices in order to estimate potential future capital gains.  Dividend returns are estimated by applying the current payout level and adjusting for future distributable cashflow as estimated by Ashland's analysis.  The simulated performance shown is not necessarily indicative of future performance, which could differ substantially. The results shown do not represent the results of actual trading using client assets but were achieved by means of the retroactive application of a model that was designed with the benefit of hindsight. The simulated performance was compiled after the end of the period depicted and does not represent the actual investment decisions of Ashland. These results do not reflect the effect of material economic and market factors on decision-making.
