Standardized Returns for ETFs, the standardized returns reflect performance without adjusting for the effects of taxation or brokerage commissions. These returns are adjusted to reflect all ongoing ETF expenses and assume reinvestment of dividends and capital gains. If adjusted, the effects of taxation would reduce the performance quoted. Performance for closed-end and exchange‐traded funds is calculated based on the fund’s end of the day market prices as reported by the New York Stock Exchange.
For mutual funds, standardized return is total return adjusted for sales charges, if applicable, and reflects all ongoing fund expenses and assumes the reinvestment of dividends and capital gains. If adjusted, the effects of taxation would reduce the performance quoted. Performance results for the Armour Tactical Flex Strategy are presented in U.S. dollars and are gross of management fees, gross of trading expenses and reflect the accumulation of dividends in cash and capital gains. The performance results described in this material are based on a blend of actual composite performance and model results of the Tactical Flex composite. Back-tested performance does not represent decisions made by Armourwealth Management, LLC. Portfolios in the Tactical Flex Strategy composite utilize levered index products (i.e. leveraged mutual funds or leveraged ETFs).
No current or prospective client should assume future performance of any specific investment strategy will be profitable or equal to past performance levels. All investment strategies have the potential for profit or loss. Changes in investment strategies, contributions or withdrawals will most likely cause the performance results to differ materially from the reported composite performance. Different types of investments involve varying degrees of risk, and there can be no assurance that any specific investment will either be suitable or profitable for a client’s investment portfolio. Historical performance results for market indices and/or categories, generally do not reflect the deduction of transaction and/or custodial charges or the deduction of an investment‐ management fee. Economic factors, market conditions, and investment strategies will affect the performance of any portfolio and there are no assurances that it will match or outperform any particular benchmark.
All illustrations presented on this website are of a simulated investment that assumes the portfolio holding(s) were purchased on the first day of the period indicated. This hypothetical reconstruction, based on past market data, illustrates what the performance of a particular account would have been had the adviser been managing the account using a particular investment strategy. The performance results presented herein, while generated with the live track records of each constituent, are purely hypothetical and do not reflect actual trading in clients’ accounts. Hypothetical results have inherent limitations, particularly the fact that these results do not represent actual trading and may not reflect the impact that material economic and market factors might have placed on the adviser’s decision‐making if the adviser were actually managing the client’s money. These results should not be viewed as indicative of the adviser’s that were achieved adviser s skill and do not reflect the performance results by any particular client. Sales and tax charges, including those required in the event of transfers between assets, are not taken into account. The performance data represents past performance and is not indicative of future results. Principal value and investment returns will fluctuate, and an investor’s shares/units/account value, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original investment.
The time period for any hypothetical illustration is constrained by the portfolio constituent with the shortest live track record. It is impossible to know how this portfolio would have behaved had this portfolio been analyzed over a longer time frame.
The underlying holdings of all portfolios are not federally or FDIC‐insured and are not deposits or obligations of, or guaranteed by, any financial institution.
Investing in securities involves investment risks including possible loss of principal and fluctuation in value. The investment returns do not reflect active trading and do not necessarily reflect the results that might have been achieved by active management of the account. The investment returns of other clients of the advisor may differ materially from the investment portrayed.
The investment returns depicted are gross of fees and expenses, does not deduct trading costs or custodial fees, and does not account for the reinvestment of dividends. Client investment returns may be reduced if additional fees are incurred. Reciprocally, investment returns may be increased if the reinvestment of dividends were applied to the model portfolio.
The investment returns may not reflect the deduction of transaction costs. Client investment returns may be reduced if additional fees are incurred.
The investment summary graphs plot the approximate market value of the security or portfolio over the investing horizon. It may also include the total investment assumed in the illustration and/or a benchmark. Taxes and transaction costs are not applied to the benchmark index. Note that direct investment in an index is not possible. Indexes are unmanaged portfolios representing different asset classes, with varying levels of associated risk. The benchmark index included in the graph may or may not represent an appropriate or accurate comparison with the security or portfolio illustrated.
The information contained on this site is from the most recent information available to Evestment Alliance and ArmourWealth, Inc. as of the release date, and may or may not be an accurate reflection of the current composition of the securities included in the portfolio. There is no assurance that the weightings, composition and ratios will remain the same.
Alpha –Simply stated, alpha is often considered to represent the value that a portfolio manager adds to or subtracts from a fund’s return on a risk‐adjusted basis. A positive alpha of 1.0 means the fund has outperformed its benchmark index by 1%. Correspondingly, a similar negative alpha would indicate an underperformance of 1%.
Beta – A measure of the volatility, or systematic risk, of a security or a portfolio in comparison to the market as a whole. Beta is used in the capital asset pricing model (CAPM), a model that calculates the expected return of an asset based on its beta and expected market returns.
Downside Capture Ratio – A statistical measure of an investment manager’s overall performance in down‐markets. The down‐market capture ratio is used to evaluate how well or poorly an investment manager performed relative to an index during periods when that index has dropped. The ratio is calculated by dividing the manager’s returns by the returns of the index during the down‐market and multiplying that factor by 100.
Excess Return – Returns in excess of the risk‐free rate or in excess of a market measure, such as an index fund.
Information Ratio – A ratio of portfolio returns above the returns of a benchmark (usually an index) to the volatility of those returns. The information ratio (IR) measures a portfolio manager’s ability to generate excess returns relative to a benchmark, but also attempts to identify the consistency of the investor. This ratio will identify if a manager has beaten the benchmark by a lot in a few months or a little every month. The higher the IR the more consistent a manager is and consistency is an ideal trait.
Rate of Return – The gain or loss on an investment over a specified period, expressed as a percentage increase over the initial investment cost. Gains on investments are considered to be any income received from the security plus realized capital gains.
R-Squared – The values range from 0 to 100. An R-squared of 100 means that all movements of a security are completely explained by movements in the index. A high R‐squared (between 85 and 100) indicates the fund’s performance patterns have been in line with the index. A fund with a low R‐squared (70 or less) doesn’t act much like the index. A higher R-squared value will indicate a more useful beta figure. For example, if a fund has an R‐squared value of close to 100 but has a beta below 1, it is most likely offering higher risk‐adjusted returns. A low R‐squared means you should ignore the beta.
Sharpe Ratio –The Sharpe ratio tells us whether a portfolio’s returns are due to smart investment decisions or a result of excess risk. This measurement is very useful because although one portfolio or fund can reap higher returns than its peers, it is only a good investment if those higher returns do not come with too much additional risk. The greater a portfolio’s Sharpe ratio, the better its risk‐adjusted performance has been. A negative Sharpe ratio indicates that a risk‐less asset would perform better than the security being analyzed.
Standard Deviation – Standard deviation is a statistical measurement that sheds light on historical volatility. For example, a volatile stock will have a high standard deviation while the deviation of a stable blue chip stock will be lower. A large dispersion tells us how much the return on the fund is deviating from the expected normal returns.
Tracking Error – Tracking errors are reported as a “standard deviation percentage” difference. This measure reports the difference between the return an investor receives and that of the benchmark he or she was attempting to imitate.
Upside Capture Ratio –A statistical measure of an investment manager’s overall performance in up‐markets. The up‐market capture ratio is used to evaluate how well an investment manager performed relative to an index during periods when that index has risen. The ratio is calculated by dividing the manager’s returns by the returns of the index during the upmarket, and multiplying that factor by 100.
Market Price Risk – The market price of ETF’s and HOLDRs traded on the secondary market is subject to the forces of supply and demand and thus independent of the NAV. This can result in the market price trading at a premium or discount to the NAV which will affect an investor’s value.
Market Risk – The market prices of ETF’s and HOLDRs can fluctuate as to the result of several factors such as security‐ specific factors or general investor sentiment. Therefore, investors should be aware of the prospect of market fluctuations and the impact it may have on the market price.
International Emerging Markets – The investor should note that in international accounts invest securities take on special additional risks. These risks include, but are not limited to, currency risk, political risk, and risk associated with varying accounting standards. Investing in emerging markets normally accentuates these risks.
Sector Funds/Subaccounts – The investor should note that accounts that invest exclusively in one sector or industry involve additional risks. The lack of industry diversification subjects the investor to increased industry‐specific risks.
Non-DiversifiedFunds/Subaccounts– The investor should note that accounts that invest more of their assets in a single issuer involve additional risks, including share price fluctuations, because of the increased concentration of investments.
