Index returns are hypothetical.  Returns are backtested prior to 2/26/2015 for Risk Managed U.S. Sectors, prior to 12/22/2014 for U.S. Factor Defensive Equity, prior to 8/20/2013 for Risk Managed Global Sectors, prior to 8/20/2013 for Risk Managed Small-Cap Sectors, prior to 9/14/2013 for Multi-Asset Income, prior to 10/1/2013 for Target Excess Yield.  

Index returns are net of an assumed management fee.  All models assume a 0.5% annual management fee, except for the QuBe portfolios which are available as free-to-subscribe model allocations.  Except as is specifically provided, index returns do not reflect the impact of trading fees such as taxes, transaction costs, etc.  Index returns are inclusive of underlying ETF management fees. The performance results include reinvestment of dividends, capital gains and other earnings.  

Indices assume that trades are implemented on the first trading day after a rebalance is required. The execution price prior to 10/1/15 was assumed to be the open. On and after 10/1/15, the execution price is an estimate of the TWAP. Index start dates are determined by the time it takes Newfound's models to calibrate given available market data.

Newfound's dynamic, volatility-adjusted momentum model (which is utilized in all of the products except the Target Excess Yield suite, Systematic Value, and the QuBe suite), has helped power live investment decisions since September 2008.  

About Newfound

While other asset managers focus on alpha, our first focus is on managing risk.

We know investors care deeply about protecting the capital they have worked hard to accumulate. And as investors approach and enter retirement, managing “sequence risk” becomes even more important.

Newfound Research is a quantitative asset management firm with a focus on risk-managed, tactical asset allocation strategies.  We were founded in August 2008 and are based out of Boston, MA.

We work exclusively with institutions and financial advisors.
