3-YEAR RISK MEASURES (as of October 31, 2018)

Annualized returns are used to calculate the risk metrics below.
Standard deviation (fund) 7.50 Sharpe ratio 0.57 Alpha -1.37
Standard deviation (category) 8.03 R2 83.83 Beta 0.93
Standard deviation (fund) 7.50
Sharpe ratio 0.57
Alpha -1.37
Standard deviation (category) 8.03
R2 83.83
Beta 0.93
  • Standard deviation: Standard deviation measures volatility, which is often used as an indicator of risk. In general, funds with higher standard deviation (higher volatility) will have returns that change more over time. They typically have a greater chance of losing money and may have a greater chance of higher returns. Funds with lower standard deviation (lower volatility) tend to have returns that change less over time. They typically have lower returns and may have a lower chance of losing money.
  • Sharpe ratio: The Sharpe ratio combines a risk measurement and a return measurement into a single number. It uses standard deviation (defined above) to determine a fund's risk per unit of return, otherwise known as a "risk-adjusted" return. A higher Sharpe ratio is better. When comparing two funds, the one with the higher Sharpe ratio outperformed the one with the lower ratio on a risk-adjusted basis.
  • R2: (pronounced "R-squared") measures how much of a fund's price movement can be attributed to the movement of the fund's benchmark. On a scale of 0-100, an R2 of 100 means 100% of the fund's price movement can be explained by the movement of the benchmark. An R2 of 85 means 85% of the fund's price movement can be explained by the movement of the benchmark, with 15% of the fund's price movement due to other factors.
  • Alpha: Alpha measures the difference between a fund's return and the return of its benchmark, taking into consideration volatility. An alpha of 1 means a fund outperformed its benchmark by 1 percentage point over the period with the same volatility. An alpha of -1 means the fund underperformed its benchmark by 1 percentage point.
  • Beta: Beta measures the price movement of a security in relation to its benchmark. A security with a beta higher than 1 means the security's price movement is more extreme (up or down) than the benchmark's. A security with a beta lower than 1 means the security's price movement is less extreme than the benchmark's. A beta of 1 means the security moves in step with its benchmark.
