Alpha is the risk-adjusted measurement of "excess return" over a benchmark. Beta is a measure of an investment’s volatility in comparison to the market as a whole. Duration is a measure of the sensitivity of an asset or portfolio’s price to interest rate movements. Information ratio is a measurement of portfolio returns beyond the returns of a benchmark, compared to the volatility of those returns. R-squared is the percentage of a portfolio’s price movements that can be explained by movements in a benchmark index. Sharpe ratio is a measure of the fund’s return relative to the investment risk it has taken. A higher Sharpe ratio means the fund’s returns have been better given the level of risk the fund has taken. Standard deviation is a measure of the dispersion of a portfolio’s return from its mean. Tracking error is the difference in actual performance between a portfolio and its corresponding benchmark. Up capture measures the percentage of market gains captured when markets are up. Down capture measures the percentage of market losses endured when markets are down. Yield-to-Worst (YTW) is a measure of the lowest possible yield that can be received on a bond that fully operates within the terms of its contract without defaulting. YTW is based on the underlying bonds held by the fund/account at the time it is calculated.
Risks To Consider
Market Risk: The market values of the portfolio’s holdings rise and fall from day to day, so investments may lose value.
Past performance does not guarantee future results. There is no assurance that a separately managed account will achieve its investment objective.
Separately managed accounts are subject to market risk, the market values of securities owned will fluctuate so that your investment, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than its original cost.
