What you need to know:
What is the new index?
The ES Capital Risk Managed Growth Index has a unique two pronged approach to risk management. The first step implements a quantitative model that dictates sector and cash allocations (monthly). The second step implements a quantitative equity model for selecting securities for inclusion in the portfolio (quarterly). The portfolio offers diversification and balance through exposure to high quality growth stocks within the US Market. The index can be invested up to 100% in cash during periods of market weakness across all sectors.
How will the index be disseminated?
REVISED 7/20/2012: It has been brought to NASDAQ OMX attention that a symbol conflict exists with these new indexes. At the request of ES Capital, NASDAQ OMX will revise the index symbols effective Monday July 23, 2012 on GIDS to reflect the new symbols.
NASDAQ OMX will identify this index via the following data elements in GIDS:
|CurrentIndex Identifier||Revised Index Identifier||Index Name||Currency||Dissemination Frequency||Session ID||Originator ID|
|RMFG||RMGF||ES Capital Risk Managed Growth Index||USD||Real Time||"A"||"Q"|
