4 The SG CTA Index provides the market with a reliable daily performance benchmark of major commodity trading advisors (CTAs). The SG CTA Index used in construction of the Index will be conducted annually, with re-balancing on January 1st of each year. A committee of industry professionals has been established to monitor the methodology of the index on a regular basis. The Index is not actively managed and does not reflect any deduction for fees, expenses or taxes. An investor cannot invest directly in the Index.
5 Aspen Managed Futures Beta Index (Aspen MFBI) is constructed using a quantitative, rules-based model designed to replicate the trend-following and counter-trend exposure of futures markets by allocating assets to liquid futures contracts of certain financial and commodities futures markets. The Aspen MFBI therefore seeks to reflect the performance of strategies and exposures common to a broad universe of futures markets, i.e., managed futures beta. The index is not actively managed and does not reflect any deductions for fees, expense or taxes. An investor may not invest directly in an index.
