General Disclaimers

All information for an index prior to its Inception Date is back-tested, based on the methodology that was in effect on the Inception Date. Back-tested performance, which is hypothetical and not actual performance, can frequently result in material differences between back-tested results and actual results achieved by an investment strategy.

Past performance of an index is not a guarantee of future results. Charts, graphs, and other performance indicators are provided for illustrative purposes and may reflect hypothetical historical performance. The back-test period does not necessarily correspond to the entire available history of any particular index.

Back-tested calculations are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. No hypothetical calculation can comprehensively account for all the factors that may impact actual performance. Index returns shown do not represent the results of any strategy tracking the index, including any sales charges, commissions, or other fees charged to purchase securities, fund, or other investment vehicles.

It is not possible to invest directly in an index. Exposure to an asset class represented by an index is available through investable instruments based on that index. Salt Financial Indices does not sponsor, endorse, sell, promote or manage any investment fund or other investment vehicle that is offered by third parties and that seeks to provide an investment return based on the performance of any index. Salt Financial Indices makes no assurance that investment products based on the indices will accurately track index performance or provide positive investment returns. Salt Financial Indices is not an investment advisor and makes no representation regarding the advisability of investing in any such investment fund or other investment vehicle. A decision to invest in any such investment fund or other investment vehicle should not be made in reliance on any of the statements set forth in this document. Prospective investors are advised to make an investment in any such fund or other vehicle only after carefully considering the risks associated with investing in such funds, as detailed in an offering memorandum or other similar document that is prepared by or on behalf of the issuer of the investment fund or other investment product or vehicle. Salt Financial Indices is not a tax advisor. A tax advisor should be consulted to evaluate the impact of any tax-exempt securities on portfolios and the tax consequences of making any particular investment decision. Inclusion of a security within an index is not a recommendation by Salt Financial Indices to buy, sell, or hold such security, nor is it intended to be investment advice and should not be construed as such.
