Press Release
There are five Prospectus Risk rating categories:

This can cause significant discrepancies among the standard deviation of funds within the same risk category. The Fundata Prospectus Risk Indices highlight these discrepancies and provide objective Prospectus Risk benchmarks to measure the degree to which a fund stays within or varies from its stated risk category.

The Fundata Prospectus Risk Indices will give investors a standard by which to measure mutual funds according to the level of risk assigned by the fund manager.

The Prospectus Risk Indices were constructed using the following methodology:
  • An equal-weighted index that tracks performance and risk-return profiles of constituent funds
  • Funds must have three or more years of history
  • The same constituents test is used for each Index, and risk ratings are updated monthly
  • Grouped funds are plotted in terms of 3 year annualized standard deviation versus 3 year compound return

Suited for:
  • Advisors
  • Investors
  • Fund Managers
  • Brokers and Dealers
