Bridgeway Managed Volatility Composite - Portfolios in this composite are managed with an objective of seeking to provide a high current return with short-term risk less than or equal to 40% of the stock market. These portfolios invest in both equity and debt seeking to provide less volatility, but with above-average performance. Investments may include option writing (up to 75% of assets), fixed income securities (at least 25% of assets), and any companies where exchange traded options are available, although BCM may not cover some positions with options. Portfolios in this composite would appropriately be benchmarked against the S&P 500® Index.

Composite portfolios may exhibit higher volatility due to the use of aggressive investment techniques including the use of futures, options, leverage, and short sales in portfolios. Futures and options may not always be successful hedges, and their prices can be highly volatile. They may not always successfully manage risk. Using futures and options could lower a portfolio’s total return, and the potential loss from the use of futures can exceed a portfolio’s initial investment in such contracts. Leverage created from borrowing may impair the portfolio’s liquidity, cause it to liquidate positions at an unfavorable time, increase volatility or otherwise not achieve its intended objective.

The S&P 500® Index is a free-float capitalization-weighted index published since 1957 of the prices of 500 large-cap common stocks actively traded in the United States. The stocks included in the S&P 500® are those of large publicly held companies that are listed on the New York Stock Exchange, NYSE American, and Nasdaq®.

The currency used to express performance is the US dollar.
