ACM created an index under the Bloomberg ticker of EALTS with S&P Dow Jones serving as the calculation agent. The inception of the pro-forma results is 1/1/07 with the index going live in the spring of 2017. The equity components include allocations to the S&P 500, Russell 1000, S&P Mid-Cap, and the Russell 2000. The hedges include VIX linked investments through the S&P 500 Dynamic VIX Futures Index and for bonds through 20+ Year Treasury Bonds (TLT), and Short-term Treasuries. These assets are actively rebalanced according to predetermined and proprietary rules to react to up, down, or flat markets. There are no market forecasts or directional calls. A key advantage of the index is to provide stable returns over a full market cycle while limiting the downside risk. For example, for the 10-year period ending 6/30/18, the cumulative returns for the index are similar to US equities, however, on a risk-adjusted basis EALTS has fared better than the S&P 500 and the Hedge Fund Index.
