Investment portfolio

The Atlas Global Downside Protected (GDP) strategy is a global equity strategy benchmarked to the MSCI All-Country World Index (ACWI).  GDP is designed to reduce the risk of large loss in sustained market declines, while still striving to achieve gains when stock markets are rising.  The strategy does this by avoiding segments of global stock markets that have heightened risk profile; staying fully invested in “good markets” (using cash sparingly); and opportunistically managing foreign exchange rate risk.   As with the other Atlas strategies, GDP uses a consistent, systematic approach with a foundation in academic and Atlas proprietary research.

Important Information

1. Performance of the Portfolio Manager's account is calculated by Covestor on a daily time-weighted basis, including cash, dividends and earnings distributions and broker commissions. Manager returns include trades and positions that fail Covestor's trading rules, as a result, actual client returns will differ. Covestor advisory fees are simulated and applied retro-actively to present the portfolio return "net-of-fees".

2. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Periodic and since inception performance returns are calculated daily. Monthly vs. S&P 500 return and the corresponding spark chart is calculated to the most recent month end date.

3. The investment minimum is the minimum investment required to follow a particular portfolio. The minimum amount is determined by Covestor, based on the characteristics of the underlying portfolio. It should not be considered as specific investment advice for your investment situation.
