Weiss ETF Strategic Allocation Portfolio: The Weiss ETF Strategic Allocation Portfolio, a managed investment program, is designed to assist investors, who have a moderate risk tolerance, in diversifying assets and simplifying the process associated with investing in exchange traded funds (ETFs)1. With the growing popularity and number of ETFs now available, virtually an entire portfolio of ETFs, diversified in stocks, bonds and alternatives, such as precious metals, real estate, and commodities, can be assembled in a single managed account. Our managed program, the Weiss ETF Strategic Allocation Portfolio, provides you with professional investment management, simplified record keeping, and strategic rebalancing. Account minimum: $100,000. Maximum annual management fee of 1.75% on all assets in the Program, paid quarterly in advance, based upon the previous quarter's market value of your account (breakpoints available). Note: Minimum three-to-five-year holding period is recommended.3 5

WCM Sector Series ETF Sector Rotation: Concentrated: The ETF Sector Rotation: Concentrated Program is designed to provide investors, who have a long-term time horizon and an aggressive risk tolerance, with the potential for growth of principal. The portfolio manager seeks to realize this objective by investing in top-ranked exchange traded funds (ETFs)1 according to his proprietary quantitative methods. Account minimum: $100,000. Maximum annual management fee of 2.00% on all assets in the Program, paid quarterly in advance, based upon the previous quarter's market value of your account (breakpoints available). Note: Minimum three-to-five-year holding period is recommended.3 6 7

WCM Sector Series ETF Sector Rotation: Diversified: The ETF Sector Rotation: Diversified Program is designed for investors with a moderate risk tolerance seeking long-term growth of capital. In seeking to achieve this goal, the Program’s portfolio manager utilizes a proprietary methodology to uncover short-term opportunities in a diversified portfolio of several top-ranked ETFs.1 This approach is designed to identify several ETFs that are expected to enable the Program to outperform its benchmark, the S&P 500 Index, over time, regardless of the overall direction of the market. This program holds 8-10 separate ETFs at any one time, giving the portfolio diversification across different securities or commodities. Account minimum: $100,000. Maximum annual management fee of 2.00% on all assets in the Program, paid quarterly in advance, based upon the previous quarter's market value of your account (breakpoints available). Note: Minimum three-to-five-year holding period is recommended.3 5

Weiss All-World Strategic Growth Program: (name changed from Weiss All-Star Growth Program on July 25, 2007) The Weiss All-World Strategic Growth Program is a professionally managed, mutual fund-based strategy, that seeks to provide long-term growth by investing in both domestic and international equity mutual funds, including those that invest in emerging markets. The goal of this ‘go-anywhere’ strategy is to uncover trends in the global marketplace and position the Program to potentially benefit from these trends as they develop. As part of our selection process, we look for mutual funds that have a history of strong performance through various market cycles — up trends, downtrends and markets that are trendless — drifting with no clear direction. We aim to combine our own experience and expertise with that of each mutual fund manager to ultimately help you reach your financial goals. This global investment program is designed for investors with an aggressive risk tolerance. Account minimum: $50,000. Annual management fee of 1.75% on all assets in the Program, paid quarterly in advance, based upon the previous quarter's market value of your account. Note: Minimum three-to-five year holding period is recommended.3 4 5

Weiss Balanced Program: Just as the name implies, the Weiss Balanced Program uses a “balanced” approach to asset allocation — seeking to provide long-term capital growth, along with the potential for above-average levels of income. This professionally managed program, designed for investors with a moderate risk tolerance, invests in a diversified portfolio of domestic dividend-paying common stocks, international equity mutual funds, fixed-income mutual funds, and other investments to attempt to achieve its objective. Our experienced portfolio manager continually assesses the risk/reward spectrum to determine what he believes to be an appropriate mix. There is also the ability to reduce equity exposure to minimize the impact of market declines on portfolio returns. Account minimum: $150,000. Annual management fee of 1.50% on all assets in the Program, paid quarterly in advance, based upon the previous quarter's market value of your account. Note: Minimum three-to-five year holding period is recommended.2 3 4 5

Weiss Select Equity Portfolio: The portfolio manager of the Weiss Select Equity Portfolio utilizes the stock-rating system of TheStreet.com Ratings to assist in the stock selection of high-quality companies listed on the US stock exchanges. The manager uses TheStreet.com Ratings system to narrow the universe of “BUY-” rated companies by screening them against specific criteria: low valuations, financial strength, relatively low debt levels, consistent profitability and other fundamental criteria, to form a focused list of companies that, in the opinion of the portfolio manager, are the best companies, with the objective of building a portfolio expected to outperform the S&P 500 Index over a full-market cycle. The Weiss Select Equity Portfolio is suitable for investors with a moderate risk tolerance who are looking for a program that offers the potential for capital appreciation from a high-quality equity strategy. Account minimum: $150,000. Annual management fee of 1.50% on all assets in the Program, paid quarterly in advance, based upon the previous quarter's market value of your account. Note: Minimum three-to-five-year holding period is recommended.2 3 5

Weiss Bear Strategy: The Weiss Bear Strategy is a unique professionally managed investment strategy, designed for investors with an aggressive risk tolerance, that is designed to speculate and take advantage of prolonged US stock or bond market declines. This strategy has the flexibility to “short” by investing in inverse index funds. This strategy is structured in this manner to accommodate investors who own stocks, bonds, or other investments that could be vulnerable to a bear market — a prolonged period of poor stock market performance. Account minimum: $50,000. Annual management fee of 1.50% on all assets in the Strategy, paid quarterly in advance, based upon the previous quarter’s market value of your account. Note: Minimum three-to-five-year holding period is recommended.3 5 6

Weiss Diversified Global Income and Growth Program: (name changed from Miniature Diversified Income Program on March 31, 2007) The Weiss Diversified Global Income and Growth Program, designed for investors with a moderate risk tolerance, is designed to generate a higher level of current income than a portfolio of US Treasury Bills and Bonds, plus growth of principal. We seek to achieve this objective by investing in fixed-income and equity mutual funds. The Program’s investments typically span the general US and global markets, in addition to specific markets/sectors, depending on prevailing economic/market conditions and forecasts. Account minimum: $50,000 (previous minimum initial investment was $5,500). Annual management fee of 1.00% on all assets in the Program, paid quarterly in advance, based upon the previous quarter's market value of your account. Note: Minimum three-to-five-year holding period is recommended.3 4 5

Weiss Diversified Income Builder: (name changed from Weiss Diversified Income Program on July 25th, 2007) The Weiss Diversified Income Program is a professionally managed, fixed-income, mutual fund-based investment program designed to generate higher levels of income with an emphasis on protection of principal and price stability. This program is designed for the moderate investor who seeks a better overall return than a pure US Treasury program. Account minimum: $50,000. Annual management fee of 1.00% on all assets in the Program, paid quarterly in advance, based upon the previous quarter's market value of your account. Note: Minimum three-to-five-year holding period is recommended.3 4 5

Weiss Diversified Income Plus Program: The Weiss Diversified Income Plus Program, designed for investors with a moderate risk tolerance, has similar core investments as its sister program, the Weiss Diversified Income Program, plus an allotment to specialty stock mutual funds. The equity mutual fund component intends to serve as protection from inflationary forces and rising interest rates, and to potentially contribute to a higher return. Account minimum: $50,000. Annual management fee of 1.25% on all assets in the Program, paid quarterly in advance, based upon the previous quarter’s market value of your account. Note: Minimum three-to-five-year holding period is recommended.3 4 5

Weiss Dynamic Program: The Weiss Dynamic Program is designed to allow an investor to potentially take advantage of rapid and large stock market moves — both up and down. Long and short trading signals are based on a quantitative model designed to react quickly to market volatility. This professionally managed investment program is very active and can trade for several days in a row, so it isn’t for the timid or inexperienced investor. We also feel that because this is a speculative program, a client’s portfolio should have no more than 10% exposure (of net wealth, exclusive of home ownership) to this particular program. Account minimum: $50,000. Annual management fee of 2.00% on all assets in the Program, paid quarterly in advance, based upon the previous quarter’s market value of your account. Note: Minimum three-to-five-year holding period is recommended.3 6

Weiss Managed Treasury Program: The Weiss Managed Treasury Program seeks higher returns than pure money market instruments alone, while providing maximum safety and liquidity to the risk-averse investor. This professionally managed program invests exclusively in US Treasury obligations. Account minimum: $100,000. Annual management fee of 0.50% on all assets in the Program, paid quarterly in advance, based upon the previous quarter’s market value of your account. Note: Minimum three-to-five-year holding period is recommended.3

Weiss Total Return Convertibles Program: The Weiss Total Return Convertibles Program is a professionally managed, designed for investors with a moderate risk tolerance, convertible securities investment program, which uses convertible bonds as the primary investment vehicle, plus a limited number of high-grade convertible preferred stocks. Issues are selected based on their creditworthiness, risk aversion, yield-support characteristics, diversification, and long-term appreciation. Account minimum: $150,000. Annual management fee of 1.50% on all assets in the Program, paid quarterly in advance, based upon the previous quarter’s market value of your account. Note: Minimum three-to-five-year holding period is recommended.3 5


Protecting your financial assets is of utmost importance to us. That’s why each Weiss Capital Management managed account is held in custody by a third-party custodian. Every month, clients receive a single, consolidated statement from the custodian that summarizes their investment positions and activity in an easy-to-read format to simplify record keeping and year-end tax preparation.

Upon request, Weiss Capital Management can prepare a quarterly review of your accounts to update you on your investment progress and performance. Also, all account holders receive our quarterly newsletter, Investors Quarterly, which provides updates on financial matters and events that we believe will be of interest to our clients.

Any cash balances are always working for you as they are swept into the Weiss Treasury Only Money Market Fund.*


As with all investment programs, there are no guarantees that we will be able to achieve the objectives stated here or in other materials. Past performance is not indicative of future returns, and as with any investment program, it is possible to lose money by investing in these programs.

International investing presents certain risks not associated with investing solely in the United States. These include, for instance, risks related to fluctuations in the value of the US dollar relative to the values of other currencies, custody arrangements made for the fund's foreign holdings, political risks, differences in accounting procedures, and the lesser degree of public information required to be provided by non-US companies.

Any mutual fund that is selected for use in any of our managed investment programs is strictly based on the particular funds stand-alone investment merit and on nothing else. Portfolio results may vary. We make no guarantees as to the performance of any investment strategy you may choose and are not responsible for any losses you may incur due to market conditions. Weiss Capital Management does not receive, and will not receive, any special compensation or financial incentive from any mutual fund company for the use of any mutual fund in any of our managed investment programs. Transaction costs, if any, are assessed and received by the custodian, not by Weiss Capital Management or the particular fund family. On certain select mutual funds, transaction costs may apply.

The information herein shall not be considered a solicitation to buy, or an offer to sell a security to any person in any jurisdiction where such offer, solicitation, purchase, or sale would be unlawful under the securities laws of such jurisdiction.

1 Exchange traded funds are typically index funds, trusts, or depositary receipts.

2 In addition to the management fee, trading commissions (an additional client cost associated with these particular investment strategies) will be generated. As the investment adviser, we do not receive any of these commission dollars. Commissions, however, will be earned by Weiss Capital Securities, Inc., a subsidiary of WCM. These programs may generate short-term capital gains, which may not be suitable for all investors. Please consult with your tax adviser before investing in these programs.

3 Investors in this program will have their portfolio rebalanced as necessary to maintain the Program's model asset allocations. Rebalancing may generate nominal fees. Asset allocation for this program is subject to change.

4 Certain mutual funds used in the program may impose a minimum holding period or redemption fees will be assessed. Redemption fees, if any, are assessed and received by the mutual fund company itself. On certain mutual funds, transaction costs may apply. These programs may use both load and no-load mutual funds. As an investor in the program, you will not pay a sales load on any of the mutual funds selected. Freestanding no-load mutual funds will also be used in these Programs.

* Weiss Capital Management provides investment advisory, administrative, and other services to the Weiss Treasury Only Money Market Fund and receives compensation for those services. An investment in the Fund is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Company (FDIC) or any other government agency. Although the Fund seeks to preserve the value of your investment at $1.00 per share, it is possible to lose money by investing in the Fund. Because short-term interest rates can fluctuate substantially over the short term, as with most money market funds, the rate of income will vary from day to day, generally reflecting these changes in rates. As interest rates change, the value of securities held by the Fund will also fluctuate.

The Weiss Treasury Only Money Market Fund is offered and sold to persons residing in the United States and is offered by prospectus only. Please read the prospectus carefully before you invest or send money as it contains a complete description of the Fund’s investment objective, as well as all charges, expenses and an assessment of risk, all of which should be considered carefully before investing. To obtain a prospectus, as well as new-account forms, please contact Shareholder Services at The Weiss Fund, Inc., at 800.430.9617 or www.WeissFund.com.
