Performance - Including Pledge Installment balance query filter causes really slow performance

Building an ad-hoc query that includes the Pledge Installment balance as a filter in the query design causes poor performance.
The pledge balance calculation is a taxing operation and should only be used with a small amount of records. With this in mind we recommend users use the data warehouse for any pledge related balance queries and calculations.
