Trillium Capital Index Fund

FACTSHEET

APRIL 2021

The fund is a basket of 50+ of the most actively traded U.S. company stocks listed on the Nasdaq stock exchange. Several of them are also listed on the Dow Jones 30 and the S&P 500. The companies are from various industries including technology, health care, industrials and many others. Although they are U.S. companies, 27 countries are tied to companies represented in the index.

It is constructed on a modified capitalisation methodology. This modified method uses individual weights of the companies according to their market capitalisation. Weighting allows constraints to limit the influence of the largest companies and balance the index with all constituents. The stock list is reviewed each quarter and weightings adjusted if the distribution requirements are not met.

All stocks within the index need to have an average daily trading volume of 200,000 and publicly report earnings quarterly as well as annually. They also must be a component of the Nasdaq index for at least 5 years to be included this eliminates smaller companies that come in and out of the Nasdaq from time to time. These criteria make for a more consistent and stable return using our strategy.

KEY RISKS

Investment risk is concentrated in specific sectors, countries, currencies, or companies. This means the Fund is more sensitive to any localized economic, market, political or regulatory events. The value of equities and equityrelated securities can be affected by daily stock market movements. Other influential factors include political, economic news, company earnings and significant corporate events. Counterparty Risk: The insolvency of any institutions providing services such as safekeeping of assets or acting as counterparty to derivatives or other instruments, may expose the Fund to financial loss

Methodology

Our primary trading strategy is Swing Trading. This involves buying a stock to capture gains over a short to medium term time period which can range from a few days to several weeks. Swing traders take advantage of the price momentum of a stock. We use fundamental analysis to select the stock and technical analysis to look for trading opportunities. Many of the stocks we hold pay dividends which we see as an added bonus to our returns.

We have developed a unique set of technical trading parameters. We look at the daily charts and have a defined buy, sell, and trigger signal.
