Standard deviation is a statistical measure of the historical volatility of a mutual fund or portfolio. Beta measures the volatility of the fund, as compared to that of the overall market or of a benchmark. The benchmark’s beta is set at 1.00; a beta higher than 1.00 is considered to be more volatile than the benchmark, while a beta lower than 1.00 is considered to be less volatile. Alpha is an annualized return measure of how much better or worse a fund’s performance is relative to an index of funds in the same category, after allowing for differences in risk. Market Capture Ratio is a statistical measure of the Fund’s overall performance in up-markets (positive return periods) and down-markets (negative return periods). The market capture ratios are used to evaluate how well an investment performed relative to an index during periods when that index has risen or fallen.
