**2019 Case Study**

Investor X, as we’ll call him, decided to invest $1,000 with the Templar Fund at our public launch in August 2018. In exchange for his 1,000 USDC deposit made on August 15, 2018, the Templar Fund provided Investor X with 1,000 TEMP on the first day of 2018 Q4 trading, October 1, 2018.

During Q4 of 2018, the Templar Fund earned a non-compounded return of 20.471% (download earnings report). To calculate Mr. X’s dividend, you can use the following math:**1,000 TEMP * 0.20471 * 0.75 (this represents our 25% profit share) = 153.53 TEMP**

On December 31, 2018, the Templar Fund sent Investor X his dividend of 153.53 TEMP. In his wallet, Investor X was then holding a total of 1,153.53 TEMP, which would be automatically re-compounded in 2019’s Q1 trade period.

During Q1 of 2019, the Templar Fund earned a non-compounded return of 7.750% (download earnings report). To calculate Mr. X’s dividend, you can use the following math:**1,153.53 TEMP * 0.0775 * 0.75 (this represents our 25% profit share) = 67.04 TEMP**

On March 30, 2019, the Templar Fund sent Investor X his dividend of 67.04 TEMP. In his wallet, Investor X was then holding a total of 1,220.57 TEMP, which would be automatically re-compounded in 2019’s Q2 trade period.

Feeling good after seeing two quarters of continuous profit, Investor X decided to add $500 more to his trade position on April 4, 2019. He would receive his 500 TEMP on the first day of the next trade quarter, July 1, 2019. During Q2 of 2019, the Templar Fund earned a non-compounded return of 14.112% (download earnings report). To calculate Mr. X’s dividend, you can use the following math:**1,220.57 TEMP * 0.14112 * 0.75 (this represents our 25% profit share) = 129.19 TEMP**

On June 30, 2019, the Templar Fund sent Investor X his dividend of 129.19 TEMP. In his wallet, Investor X was then holding a total of 1,349.76 TEMP, which would be automatically re-compounded in 2019’s Q3 trade period. Additionally, on July 1, 2019 Investor X received 500 TEMP from his April 4, 2019 deposit. For the Q3 trade period, Investor X’s trade balance was 1,849.76 TEMP.

As the 2019 Q3 progressed, Investor X decided he needed to retrieve $250 from his trade balance of 1,849.76 TEMP. To accomplish this, on August 1, 2019 he sent 250 TEMP to the Templar Fund. The fund sent back 250 TEMP*0.98 (this represents our 2% withdraw fee) = 245 USDC. On this date in his wallet, Investor X had 1,599.76 TEMP and 245 USDC. During Q3 of 2019, the Templar Fund earned a non-compounded return of 10.750% (download earnings report). To calculate Mr. X’s dividend, you can use the following math:**1,599.76 TEMP * 0.1075 * 0.75 (this represents our 25% profit share) = 128.98 TEMP**

On September 30, 2019, the Templar Fund sent Investor X his dividend of 128.98 TEMP. In his wallet, Investor X was then holding a total of 1,728.74 TEMP, which would be automatically re-compounded in 2019’s Q4 trade period.

During the 2019 Q4 trade period, Investor X made plans to take profit and close his trade positions. He smartly made the decision to wait until the dividend payment on December 31, 2019 was completed before redeeming his entire TEMP balance. During Q4 of 2019, the Templar Fund earned a non-compounded return of 3.473% (download earnings report). To calculate Mr. X’s dividend, you can use the following math:**1,728.74 TEMP * 0.03473 * 0.75 (this represents our 25% profit share) = 45.03 TEMP**

On December 31, 2019, the Templar Fund sent Investor X his dividend of 45.03 TEMP. In his wallet, Investor X was then holding a total of 1,773.77 TEMP. As planned, on January 1, 2020, Investor X sent his entire balance of 1,773.77 TEMP back to the Templar Fund’s treasury address. He was sent the following:

1,773.77 TEMP*0.98 = 1,738.2946 USDC

During his 2019 experience with the Templar Fund, Investor X invested a total of $1,250. He ended his experience with $1,738.29, or a net profit (fees already deducted) of **$488.29!**
