BACKTESTING HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS HAVE MANY INHERENT LIMITATIONS, SOME OF WHICH ARE DESCRIBED BELOW. NO REPRESENTATION IS BEING MADE THAT ANY ACCOUNT WILL OR IS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE PROFITS OR LOSSES SIMILAR TO THOSE SHOWN. IN FACT, THERE ARE FREQUENTLY DIFFERENCES BETWEEN HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND THE ACTUAL RESULTS SUBSEQUENTLY ACHIEVED BY ANY PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM. ONE LIMITATION OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS IS THEY ARE GENERALLY PREPARED WITH THE BENEFIT OF HINDSIGHT. IN ADDITION, HYPOTHETICAL TRADING DOES NOT INVOLVE FINANCIAL RISK. NO HYPOTHETICAL TRADING RECORD CAN COMPLETELY ACCOUNT FOR THE IMPACT OF FINANCIAL RISK IN ACTUAL TRADING. FOR EXAMPLE, THE ABILITY TO WITHSTAND LOSSES OR ADHERE TO A PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM IN SPITE OF TRADING LOSSES ARE MATERIAL POINTS WHICH CAN ALSO ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS. THERE ARE NUMEROUS OTHER FACTORS RELATED TO THE MARKETS IN GENERAL OR TO THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ANY SPECIFIC TRADING PROGRAM WHICH CANNOT BE FULLY ACCOUNTED FOR IN THE PREPARATION OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND ALL OF WHICH CAN ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS. WE HAVE NOT TRADED THIS STRATEGY FOR CUSTOMERS. BECAUSE THERE ARE NO ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS TO COMPARE TO THE HYPOTHETICAL RESULTS, CUSTOMERS SHOULD BE WARY OF PLACING UNDUE RELIANCE ON THESE HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS. THE ADVISOR, DURING THE PERIOD IN QUESTION, WAS NOT MANAGING MONEY ACCORDING TO THE STRATEGY DEPICTED. THE RESULTS DO NOT REPRESENT THE RESULTS OF ACTUAL TRADING USING CLIENTS ASSETS, BUT WERE ACHIEVED BY THE MEANS OF A BACKTEST.
Past performance is not an indication of future performance.
Dividends are included in the back tested performance results. We have also calculated the net results by applying the highest management fee to be charged to advisory clients. Results will vary based on the amount of the fee applied.
The results were also calculated by rebalancing the long and short portfolios on a monthly basis. The portfolio selection was and will be generated from the proprietary NDR stock selection process which is based on quantitative factors and mechanically driven.
Other calculation criteria: No taxes were deducted; no borrowing costs were added; and no ex-dividend costs were included from the short portfolio.
Indices are not indicative of the strategy and may not be suitable for comparison purposes. Back tested returns should not be considered indicative of the skill of an investment adviser.
