Index details

This index provides exposure to stocks of certain companies concentrated in the healthcare and real estate sectors that may benefit from the long-term demographic shift towards an older population in the United States

This index is calculated on an excess return basis by measuring the extent to which (a) the stocks and any money market position outperform (b) 3-month USD LIBOR plus 0.75% per annum (accruing daily)

The money market position reflects the returns accruing on a hypothetical cash investment in a notional money market account denominated in U.S. dollars that accrues interest at the notional interest rate, which is equal to 3-month USD LIBOR

This index applies a daily volatility control:

Volatility cap: 7%. It is measured on a daily basis by calculating the realized volatility of the stocks for a 20 index business day look back period. The Index is rebalanced by ratably reallocating all or a portion of the exposure to the stocks in the Index to the money market position sufficient to reduce the realized volatility for such period to the volatility cap
