15.7013.8413.75
Beta
Beta:

The sensitivity of a portfolio's returns to changes in the return of the market as measured by the index or benchmark that represents the market. A portfolio with a beta of 1.0 behaves exactly like the index. A beta less than 1.0 suggests lower risk than the index, while a beta greater than 1.0 indicates a risk level higher than the index.

0.750.780.83
R2
R2:

The proportion of the variation in a portfolio's returns that can be explained by the variability of the returns of an index. High R-squared (close to 1.0) is usually consistent with broad diversification.

0.920.900.91
Alpha
Alpha:

A measure of risk-adjusted performance; alpha reflects the difference between a portfolio's actual return and the return that could be expected give its risk as measured by beta.

1.800.910.72
Sharpe Ratio

A risk-adjusted measure calculated using standard deviation and excess return to determine reward per unit of risk. The higher the Sharpe ratio, the better the portfolio's historical risk-adjusted performance.

Information Ratio

Disclosures

Principal Risks

Investment Risks:  You could lose money on an investment in the Portfolio. Any of the following risks, among others, could affect Portfolio performance or cause the Portfolio to lose money or to underperform: Company: The price of a company’s stock could decline or underperform. The Portfolio may use Derivatives, such as options and futures, which can be illiquid, may disproportionately increase losses and have a potentially large impact on Portfolio performance. Companies that issue Dividend yielding equity securities are not required to continue to pay dividends on such securities and can reduce or eliminate the payment of dividends in the future. Foreign Investing: poses special risks including currency fluctuation, economic and political risks not found in investments that are solely domestic. Investment Model: A manager’s proprietary model may not adequately allow for existing or unforeseen market factors or the interplay between such factors.  Volatility management techniques may not always be successful in reducing volatility, may not protect against market declines, and may limit the Portfolio’s participation in market gains. Mistakes in the construction and implementation of the investment models may create errors or limitations that might go undetected.  There is no guarantee that the use of these investment models will result in effective investment decisions.  Market Disruption and Geopolitical: Geopolitical events will disrupt securities markets and adversely affect global economies and markets. Because the Portfolio may invest in Other Investment Companies, you may pay a proportionate share of the expenses of that other investment company, in addition to the expenses of the Portfolio. Risks of the REIT's are similar to those associated with direct ownership of Real Estate, such as changes in real estate values and property taxes, interest rates, cash flow of underlying real estate assets, supply and demand, and the management skill and credit dullness of the issuer.  Other risks of the Portfolio include but are not limited to: Currency; Liquidity; Market; Market Capitalization; and Securities Lending. Investors should consult the Portfolio’s Prospectus and Statement of Additional Information for a more detailed discussion of the Portfolio’s risks.

An investment in the Portfolio is not a bank deposit and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Federal Reserve Board or any other government agency.
