The Worldwide Balanced strategy performance reflects the results of composite members that are discretionary accounts that seek to outperform our custom “Global Balanced Index”. For the equity allocation (typically 60%-80% of the portfolio), the strategy utilizes a bottom-up, fundamental analysis “relative value” approach to selecting common stocks. The objective is to buy “high quality” large capitalization companies (both domestically and internationally via ADRs) at a discount to their fair market value. The fixed income allocation (typically 20%-40% of the portfolio) is composed of short/intermediate duration high quality corporate bonds, US treasuries or US agency securities. Benchmark: Global Balanced Index, which consists of 48% S&P 500 index, 12% MSCI EAFE index and 40% Bloomberg US Aggregate Bond Index. The US dollar is the currency used to express performance.
The S&P 500 index is a market capitalization weighted index of 500 domestic stocks chosen based on market size, liquidity and industry group representation. The MSCI (Morgan Stanley Capital International) EAFE Index (Europe, Australasia, Far East) is a free-float adjusted market capitalization index that is designed to measure the equity market performance of developed markets, excluding the US and Canada. The Bloomberg US Agg Index is a broad- based flagship benchmark that measures the investment grade, US dollar-denominated, fixed-rate taxable bond market. The index includes Treasuries, government-related and corporate securities, MBS (agency fixed-rate pass- throughs), ABS and CMBS (agency and non-agency). Indices are unmanaged, assume reinvestment of income, do not represent the performance of an actual account and may have volatility, credit or other material characteristics that differ from the investment strategy (i.e. number or type of securities). All indices referenced in this material are provided for informational purposes only and registered trade names or trademark/service marks of third parties. Indices cannot be invested in directly. The returns of indices do not include any transaction costs, management fees or other costs. Portfolio characteristics, sectors weightings and holdings are subject to change, and provided for informational purposes only. A complete list of holdings for the past year is available upon request. Holdings are not security recommendations.
The net investment performance reflects the deduction of advisory fees, custodial expenses, commissions and any other expenses incurred in the management of the account. Index returns have been taken from public sources, which are believed to be reliable and accurate; however, the accuracy of such information cannot be guaranteed. Strategy Asset Managers’ annual advisory fees range from 0.40% to 1.00%. Investment advisory fees for all the SAM strategies are fully disclosed in Form ADV Part 2A.
