Index and Other Information

The performance and other information contained herein is subject to change. Total return includes reinvestment of dividends and interest, as well as accrued income and capital gain or loss. There is a possibility of loss. Past performance is not indicative of future results.


Index information is included merely to show the general trend in the markets for the periods indicated and is not intended to imply that client accounts will be similar to the index either in composition or risk. Additionally, the index may vary from client accounts in various ways including volatility, types of securities, investment objective, and level of diversification.


The MSCI World Index is a free float-adjusted market capitalization index that is designed to measure the equity market performance of developed markets. It consists of the following 23 developed market country indices: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States. As a net total return index, dividends are reinvested after the deduction of withholding taxes, using a tax rate applicable to

non-resident institutional investors who do not benefit from double taxation treaties.


The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index (S&P 500®) is an unmanaged market capitalization-weighted index of 500 common stocks chosen for market size, liquidity, and industry group representation to represent U.S. equity performance. The criteria for including a name in any index may be more restrictive or limiting than the criteria STMM uses in adding companies to its equity portfolios or bonds to its fixed income portfolios. For example, STMM equity portfolios may include international stocks as well as stocks of companies having a market capitalization below $3.5 billion, neither of which would be eligible for inclusion in the S&P 500 Index. Index information is included merely to show the general trend in the markets for the periods indicated and is not intended to imply that client accounts will be similar to the index either in composition or risk. Indices do not include cash balances.
