How Have We Done?


Altruistic U.S. Growth Index

The strategy's primary objective is long-term growth of capital. In general, the strategy will allocate capital to U.S. equities and Treasuries based on a risk budget. Roughly 95% of total portfolio risk is allocated evenly to five U.S. equity factors - momentum, value, size, quality and volatility. Roughly 5% of total portfolio risk is allocated to U.S. Treasuries. The strategy dynamically allocates as the correlations and volatilities of the underlying exposures changes over time.

**Standard Deviation is a measure of risk and volatility. When an index has a high standard deviation, the predicted range of performance is wide, implying greater volatility and risk. In other words, a higher number means more risk.
