ETF PM REPORTS PERFORMANCE FOR INVESTABLE BENCHMARKS
THOUSAND OAKS, CA; October 10, 2012 – ETF Portfolio Management (ETF PM) today reported performance for the Investable Benchmarks through September 2012. Year-to-date (YTD), the investable benchmarks returned 7% to 11% while the S&P 500 gained 16%.
The investable benchmarks are three passive core portfolios comprised of leading ETFs from Vanguard and iShares: Income, Income & Growth, and Growth. Over the past 10.8 years, all three passive core portfolios returned 8% to 9% annually. These efficient portfolios yield over 2.5% per year with expense ratios under 0.20%.
Past performance does not guarantee future results.
The Investable Benchmarks present tough competition for active management. ETF PM’s growth benchmark is an efficient multi-asset class (eMAC) portfolio based on David Swensen’s recommendation in “Unconventional Success.” Swensen’s performance managing Yale University’s multi-billion dollar endowment fund is leading Wall Street in many respects and his views have significantly broadened the industry’s perception of proper diversification.
