The Syntax Stratified Core Index is the stratified-weight version of the S&P 900® Index, which combines the S&P 500 Index and S&P MidCap 400 Index. The index holds the same constituents as the S&P 900, but the weight of each company in the Syntax Stratified Core Index is based on Syntax’s patented methodology to control exposure to related business risks (RBRs).

Past performance is no guarantee of future results. All performance presented prior to the index inception date is back-tested performance, based on the methodology in effect on the launch date. Back-tested performance is not actual performance, but is hypothetical. The inception date of the Syntax Stratified CoreIndex is 12/27/2016. The back-test calculations are based on the same methodology that was in effect when the index was officially launched. However, back-tested data may reflect the application of the index methodology with the benefit of hindsight. No theoretical or back-tested approach can account for all market factors and the impact of decisions that might have been made during the actual operation of an index. Actual returns may differ from, and be lower than, back-tested returns, which are not necessarily predictive of future returns. The base index value is set as of 100 as of the initial back-test date of 12/20/1991. Charts and graphs are provided for illustrative purposes only.

Index performance does not represent actual fund or portfolio performance and such performance does not reflect the actual investment experience of any investor. An investor cannot invest directly in an index. In addition, the results actual investors might have achieved would have differed from those shown because of differences in the timing, amounts of their investments, and fees and expenses associated with an investment in a portfolio invested in accordance with an index. None of the Syntax Indices or the benchmark indices portrayed herein charge management fees or incur brokerage expenses, and no such fees or expenses were deducted from the performance shown; provided, however, that the returns of any investment portfolio invested in accordance with such indices would be net of such fees and expenses. Additionally, none of these indices lend securities, and no revenues from securities lending were added to the performance shown. Performance shown is unaudited and subject to revision. This site may include materials and documents containing forward-looking statements which are based on our expectations and projections as of the date made. Past returns are not necessarily predictive of future returns.
The S&P 900® Index is an unmanaged composite of the S&P 500® and S&P 400® Indices considered representative of the US large- and mid-cap stock market. The S&P 900® Equal Weight Index is an equal-weighted version of the S&P 900® Index. Benchmark data for the S&P 900 is provided by S&P Dow Jones Indices. The S&P 900 Equal Weight is a modeled composite and not an officially calculated index.
Beta is a measure of relative risk, calculated as the covariance of the Index with a benchmark divided by the variance of the benchmark. Volatility is the annualized standard deviation of index returns. Sharpe ratio is a risk- adjusted measure calculated using standard deviation and excess return to determine reward per unit of risk. A higher Sharpe ratio indicates better risk-adjusted performance. Beta, volatility, and Sharpe ratio are calculated using monthly returns from 04/01/2010 to 03/31/2020. Weighted Average Stock Price-to-Earnings Ratio (P/E Ratio) is the harmonic weighted average of the ratio of each stock’s share price to its trailing 12 month earnings per share. Weighted Average Stock Price-to-Book-Value Ratio (P/B Ratio) is the harmonic weighted average of the ratio of each stock’s market price to its net asset value. Dividend Yield is the harmonic weighted average of the ratio of each stock’s annual dividend per share to its market price. Price-to-Earnings, Price-to-Book and Dividend Yield are calculated as of 03/31/2020. Turnover shows the average buying and selling activity in the portfolio in terms of how much of the index’s value changed from 04/01/2019 to 03/31/2020 calculated by taking the sum of the daily purchases and sales and dividing the lesser of the absolute value of both by the average assets during the entire period, expressed as an annualized percentage. P/E, P/B, Dividend Yield, and Turnover are calculated by Syntax via FactSet. Top holdings and security classifications used in calculating allocation tables are based on ending weight as of 03/31/2020. Market-cap allocations are based on the S&P/Citibank Style classification.
