We have some important information to share.
Your use of this site is acknowledgment that you have read and understood our terms
The AssetBuilder (AB) constructed portfolios – Model Portfolios – have been developed based on historical performance of the standard asset classes (stocks, bonds and cash) and of representative market index fund measures. Since this is a Model Portfolio (hypothetical), there can be no assurance that an AB client would have achieved similar rates of return over the time frame. In addition, since the time period in question is a historical one, there can be no assurance that future results achieved by AB clients will in any way resemble those represented by the Model Portfolios.
The Performance Tables available on this site are representative of a compilation of the selected funds to achieve a probabilistic return for a measured level of risk (standard deviation). Model Portfolios shown are rebalanced ever year on May 1. All performance data is total returns which includes interest and dividends. The DFA growth funds (DUSLX, DSCGX, DISMX) measure uses actual returns starting in January 2013. To gain additional history, appropriate DFA indexes were appended back in time from January 2013. Each historical index used was net of fees; DUSLX—24 basis opints (0.24%), DSCGX—43 basis points (0.43%), DISMX—63 basis points (0.63%). The returns are net AB’s advisory fee and Schwab transaction fee of 70 basis points (0.70%) per year. Calculation based on average fee impact on $50,000 invested in AB Model Portfolio 08 rebalanced annually for 5 years.
Although we have done our best to present this information fairly, hypothetical performance is still potentially misleading. Hypothetical data does not represent actual performance and should not be interpreted as an indication of actual performance. This data is based on transactions that were not made. Instead, the trades were simulated, based on knowledge that was available only after the fact and thus with the benefit of hindsight. Results do not include the impact of taxes, if any. Past Returns are not indicative of future results.
