Portfolio composition subject to change at any time.
Standard deviation - A statistical measurement of distribution around an average, which depicts how widely returns varied over a certain period of time. Investors use the standard deviation of historical performance to try to predict the most likely range of returns. When a fund has a high standard deviation, the predicted range of performance is wide implying greater volatility.
R-squared - Shows the percentage of a fund's performance that is explained by movement in the benchmark index. This shows the correlation between the fund and its benchmark. An R-squared of 100% indicates that all movements of a fund can be explained by movements in the benchmark. A low R-squared indicates that very few of the fund's movements can be explained by movements in its benchmark. An R-squared measure of 50%, for example, means that only 50% of the fund's movements can be explained by movements in the benchmark index.
Beta vs. Benchmark - Beta is a measure of a fund's sensitivity to market movements as defined by the fund's benchmark. A fund with a higher beta relative to the benchmark is more volatile than the benchmark and a fund with a lower beta relative to the benchmark can be expected to rise and fall more slowly than the benchmark.
Beta vs. S&P 500© Index - Beta is a measure of a fund's sensitivity to market movements as defined by the S&P 500©. A fund with a higher beta relative to the S&P 500© is more volatile than the S&P 500© and a fund with a lower beta relative to the S&P 500© can be expected to rise and fall more slowly than the S&P 500©.
Sharpe Ratio - A risk-adjusted measure that measures reward per unit of risk. The higher the Sharpe ratio, the better the fund's historical risk adjusted performance.
Information Ratio - Measures how much the fund outperformed the benchmark per unit of additional risk taken.
