6.Dispersion is measured by the equal-weighted standard deviation of annual gross returns of those portfolios that were included in the composite for the entire year. For periods prior to January 1, 2018, dispersion presented is measured by the asset-weighted standard deviation of annual gross returns of those portfolios that were included in the composite for the entire year.
The three-year annualized standard deviation measures the variability of the composite and the benchmark returns over the preceding 36-month period. The standard deviation is not presented for periods marked “NA” because the composite does not have 36 monthly returns available.
