Market Cap vs Equal Weight

The Equal Weight version of the S&P 500® Index started trading on January 8, 2003.  Since that date, it would have grown a $10,000 portfolio to $71,448 while the Market Cap version of the S&P 500 Index grew to $59,461 during the same period (as of 12/31/20, no fees considered).

This is a hypothetical illustration and does not include fees nor does it represent any actual investment. You cannot invest directly in an index. Past performance does not guarantee future results. Index returns are not fund returns.

S&P 500® INDEX Cycles: Will History Repeat?

4 out of the last 5 years were won by the market cap version of the S&P 500® Index.  However, the previous 5 year period was won by the equal weight version of the S&P 500® Index. YTD 2021 the equal weight is squarely back on top (as of 3/15/21).  

Are we heading into a new multi-year cycle?

THE S&P 500® EQUAL WEIGHT INDEX FIELD

Only 3 funds track the Equal Weight version of the S&P 500® Index.

Is your index fund TOP HEAVY?

The market cap formula heavily favors the mega caps at the expense of the other companies in the portfolio.

In fact, the LARGEST 5 COMPANIES account for the same weighting as the BOTTOM 335 COMPANIES.

As of 6/30/2021

TOO MUCH TECH in your portfolio?

Tech is great but 38% may be too much volatility for some portfolios. The equal weight version of the S&P 500® Index cuts tech exposure by almost half.

After crash ALPHA?

Directly following the last 2 major stock market crashes, the S&P 500® EQUAL WEIGHT INDEX rebounded much faster than the CAP-WEIGHTED S&P 500® INDEX.

And the ALPHA* WAS SIGNIFICANT.

+13.17% from 2003-2004

+26.70% from 2009-2010

*We define alpha as an investment strategy’s ability to beat the market.

Past performance is not indicative of future results. Short term performance does not equal long term performance. Indexes are not managed, it is not possible to invest directly in an index.  *Source: ONEFUND as of 6/30/2021

BUT WHY US?

BREAK THE MONOPOLY

THE INDEPENDENT ALTERNATIVE

DECENTRALIZE PROXY VOTING

The first S&P 500® Index Fund to open up the proxy process to our shareholders.

break the monopoly

giant monopolies run wall street

“When you buy an index fund, your right to vote at shareholder meetings is taken away and given to the fund manager. 90% of all index funds are owned by 5 companies. If current trends continue, a handful of giant institutions could gain voting control over virtually every large U.S. corporation.”   –  Jack Bogle — founder of Vanguard Funds

the independent alternative

index is an alternative

“If you’re one of the 100 million Americans that owns a mutual fund, your right to vote in corporate America has been taken away from you. A handful of giant index fund managers have more power now than the last 100 years. They are making the decisions that shape our everyday lives.

We created INDEX to give investors a way to break this monopoly.”

Michael Willis, Founder of INDEX
