  • Features – Each month, the index selects asset classes with the highest returns to capitalize on proven and persistent performance

A broadly diversified approach


Monthly rebalancing may help generate more stable growth opportunities


“Stop-loss” feature: Asset classes are evaluated, selected and weighted monthly. If on any day the overall index’s weekly return is less than -3%, all allocations are removed for one week (the Index is effectively uninvested). After one week, the Index re-establishes allocations based on the monthly selection and weighting described above. To the extent the week following the triggering of the “stop-loss” feature sees an additional 3% decline, allocations will be removed for an additional week. This may reduce the risk of potential short-term loss in the Index during a period of significant market distress but may also cause the Index to miss a potential recovery in the underlying asset classes. Past performance is not an indication of future results.

15 global asset classes
