The Fund’s objective is to seek total return which exceeds the total return of its benchmark index, the Shiller CAPE® US Sector TR USD Index (the “Index”), which had a start date of September 9, 2012.
Maintain a core portfolio of debt instruments that focuses on global fixed income sector rotation while simultaneously obtaining exposure to US Equity sector rotation strategy via the Index. The index aims to identify undervalued sectors based on a modified CAPE® Ratio, and then uses a momentum factor to seek to mitigate the effects of potential value traps. By using both a value indicator and a momentum indicator, the Index aims to provide more stable and improved risk adjusted returns. The CAPE® Ratio is used to assess equity markets valuations and averages ten years of reported earnings to account for earnings and market cycles. US sectors are represented by a sector exchange-traded fund (“ETF”). Each month, the Index ranks ten US sectors based on a modified CAPE® ratio and 12-month price momentum factor. The index selects five US sectors with the lowest modified CAPE® ratio or undervalued based on the ratio. The sector with the least favorable 12-month price momentum is rejected and the Index is comprised of the remaining four sectors for the given month.
