*NOTE: "Annual Annual Max Drawdown" (AAMDD) is the maximum drawdown for each year since inception, July 1 to June 30 each year, averaged across the number of years since the model's inception. This measure offers a better estimate of what a subscriber can expect for the model's worst drawdown in any given year – rather than an unusual, worst-case scenario in a single incident that may last a week or two and never repeats. For complete transparency, each strategy profile page also provides the strategy's one-time, worst-case-scenario Max Drawdown (MDD) in addition to the AAMDD.

For example, in 2008-2009, the SPDR S&P 500 ETF dropped by -56% over 18 months, recording the worst selloff since the Great Depression (75 years prior) and requiring more than five years for buy-and-hold investors to get back to even. During that time, the S&P 500 gained 0% – that's five long years when investors had 'dead money,' and were struggling to get back to where they started. Meanwhile, none of our systematic investment strategies lost a penny during the selloff.And during the recovery to the S&P 500's break-even, the ETFOptimize models all at least doubled their principal, with an average performance of 300% return in that period.

Investors using the ETFOptimize Systematic Strategies can virtually eliminate those devastating selloffs – in fact, our strategies turn the worst of those events into profitable opportunities. Our systematic models have an Average Annual Max Drawdown (AAMDD) since inception of just -11.07%, which is a 20.46% improvement over the Average Annual Max Drawdown (AAMDD) of a buy-and-hold of the S&P 500 ETF (SPY).

The Risk-Adjusted Return notation is based on the Sortino Ratio, which we feel more accurately utilizes downside volatility as a proxy for an investment's risk.After all, few investors ever complain about upside performance being risky. See each strategy's Profile Page for further details on its Risk-Adjusted Return.
