2.2. Client's Guidance
Client may provide written instructions or guidelines to the Investment Manager in connection with the management of the Portfolio, which shall be attached hereto as "Exhibit B." In the absence of specific guidance, the Investment Manager shall use reasonable judgment and discretion in managing the Portfolio and in determining its investment strategy and objectives.
3.1. Management Fee
For its services provided hereunder, the Investment Manager shall receive an annual management fee equal to 1.00% of the market value of the Portfolio, payable on a quarterly basis, in arrears. This fee shall be calculated based on the average market value of the Portfolio on the last day of each quarter during which the Investment Manager provided services. The first management fee payment shall be prorated for the period from the commencement of this Agreement until the end of the calendar quarter.
3.2. Additional Expenses
Client shall be responsible for the payment of any and all custodial fees, brokerage fees, taxes, and other applicable costs and expenses incurred in the management of the Portfolio. The Investment Manager shall not be responsible for the payment of such fees, taxes, and expenses, unless agreed upon in writing by the parties.
Not less frequently than quarterly, the Investment Manager shall provide Client with a written statement, which shall include: (i) a summary of the Portfolio's investments and their current market value; (ii) a statement of the Portfolio's investment performance for the period; (iii) a comparison of the Portfolio's performance to its designated investment objectives and benchmarks, if applicable; and (iv) any other information or data reasonably requested by Client.
4.2. Additional Reports
At Client's reasonable request, the Investment Manager shall provide additional reports or analyses with respect to the Portfolio, provided that any significant additional work required to generate such reports or analyses may incur additional fees to be agreed upon in writing by the parties.
This Agreement shall commence on the date first above written and, unless earlier terminated by Client or Investment Manager, shall continue in full force and effect for an initial term of one (1) year from the date hereof. Following the initial term, this Agreement shall automatically renew for successive one (1) year terms, unless either party provides written notice of its intent to terminate the Agreement at least thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of the then-current term.
6.1. Governing Law and Venue
This Agreement shall be governed by, construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the United States, without regard to its conflict of laws principles. The parties consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the United States for the resolution of any disputes arising under or in connection with this Agreement.
7.1. Entire Agreement
This Agreement, together with any exhibits attached hereto, constitutes the entire agreement and understanding of the parties with respect to the management of the Portfolio, and supersedes all prior agreements, representations and understandings, whether written or oral, with respect thereto.
