Thinking of investing in the next disruptor like Google, Under Armour or Facebook? They were all components of our IPO investment strategies ahead of their inclusion in broad market indices.
A portfolio of IPOs adds diversification to your core equity portfolio by introducing important companies not yet included in common market indices such as the S&P 500.
Past performance does not guarantee future results. The performance data quoted represents past performance and current returns may be lower or higher. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost. Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses carefully before investing. An investor cannot invest directly in an index. Index returns do not represent Fund returns. The Index does not charge management fees or brokerage expenses, nor does the Index lend securities, and no revenues from securities lending were added to the performance shown.
Net Asset Value (NAV) of the fund is calculated by dividing the total value of all the securities in its portfolio, less any liabilities, by the number of fund shares outstanding. Market Price is current value at which an asset or service can be bought or sold. Premium/Discount is provided to show the comparison of the daily net asset value (NAV) and the midpoint of the closing bid/ask for each of the funds. The Renaissance IPO Index® (IPOUSA) is a stock market index based upon a portfolio of U.S.-listed newly public companies that includes securities prior to their inclusion in core U.S. equity portfolios. The Renaissance International IPO Index® (IPOXUS) is a stock market index based upon a portfolio of newly public companies listed on non-U.S. exchanges. The S&P 500® Index (SPX) is a stock market index based on the market capitalizations of 500 large companies whose common stock is publicly traded on the NYSE.
Investments in the Renaissance IPO ETF, symbol "IPO", and the Renaissance International IPO ETF, symbol "IPOS" (the "ETFs") are subject to investment risk, including possible loss of the principal amounts invested. The ETFs invest in companies that have recently completed initial public offerings. These stocks are unseasoned equities lacking trading history, a track record of reporting to investors and widely available research coverage which may result in extreme price volatility. Due to a greater number of IPOs in certain segments, the ETFs may also be subject to information technology and financial sector risk, small and mid-capitalization company risk, and, for the Renaissance International IPO ETF, emerging markets risk. The ETFs may hold securities in the form of Depositary Receipts, REITs, and Partnership Units which have greater risks than common shares. The strategies have high portfolio turnover and securities lending risks. The returns of the ETFs may not match the return of the respective indices. The ETFs are classified as non-diversified investment companies subject to concentration risk.
