Low Volatility Composite includes all portfolios that invest in large cap dividend paying equities and for comparison purposes is measured against the S&P 500 Total Return Index.  The minimum account size for this composite is $50 thousand.  The Low Volatility Composite was created December 28, 2011.

The S&P 500 Total Return Index is an appropriate benchmark for the Low Volatility Portfolio Composite.  The S&P 500 Total Return Index is a domestic equity index consisting of 500 stocks representing approximately 75% of the total U.S. equity market focusing on the large-cap sector of the U.S. equities market. It is the type of equity index that tracks both the capital gains of a group of stocks over time, and assumes that any cash distributions, such as dividends, are reinvested back into the index.

Results are based on fully discretionary accounts under management, including those accounts no longer with the firm. 

Returns are a composite of accounts invested in the Low Volatility Strategy. To be included in the composite, a client’s portfolio must have at least 70% of the account value invested in the Strategy.  Return calculations use accrual basis accounting.  Portfolio return calculations and valuations are based on trade settlement date. 

No leverage, derivatives, or short positions have been used in this composite.

The U.S. Dollar is the currency used to express performance.
