Backtested performance is not an indicator of future actual results. The results reflect performance of a strategy not historically offered to investors and does not represent returns that any investor actually attained.
Backtested results are calculated by the retroactive application of a model constructed on the basis of historical data and based on assumptions integral to the model which may or may not be testable and are subject to losses. General assumptions include: XYZ firm would have been able to purchase the securities recommended by the model and the markets were sufficiently liquid to permit all trading.
Changes in these assumptions may have a material impact on the backtested returns presented.
Certain assumptions have been made for modeling purposes and are unlikely fast earnings be realized. No representations and warranties are made as to the reasonableness of the assumptions.
This information is provided for illustrative purposes only. Backtested performance is developed with the benefit of hindsight and has inherent limitations.
Specifically, backtested results do not reflect actual trading or the effect of material economic and market factors on the decision-making process. Fast earnings trades have not actually been executed, results may have under- or over-compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity, and may not reflect the impact that certain economic or market factors may have had on the decision-making process. Further, backtesting allows the security selection methodology to be adjusted until past returns are maximized.
Actual performance may differ significantly from backtested performance.
