The Absolute Return Commodities Index


The Absolute Return Commodities Index is the Risk Stabilised Aquantum Pegasus Strategy Index. This is a commodity market-neutral index linked to the performance of a quantitative exchange traded commodities strategy. Utilising mathematical and statistical techniques, Aquantum has developed an innovative set of rules that aims to generate consistent positive returns with low volatility, in a range of market conditions.

Performance:
The returns are based on the increase on the Risk Stabilised Aquantum Pegasus Strategy Index over the specified month. The simulated performance uses the historical values of the Risk Stabilised Aquantum Pegasus Strategy Index (USD) as published by Bloomberg. Investors should note that in calculating the simulated returns, they have been calculated based on back-testing using historical data of the Underlying Index from the period of 6 October 1997 until 6 September 2009. All fees, costs and charges of the Underlying Index have been taken into account when calculating the simulated returns. In addition, the simulation assumes that the Reference Index was not terminated by the Reference Index Calculation Agent and where there was a Market Disruption Event or other event which prevented the publishing of a Reference Index Value, the Issuer has used a level on the following Business Day.
