Dow Jones to develop and co-brand an index family

Tuesday, April 26, 2011
Opalesque Industry Update: Dow Jones Indexes, a leading global index provider, and LSP Partners LLC, a risk management research consulting firm, today announced an agreement to develop and co-brand an index family utilizing a proprietary strategy created by LSP Partners founder and CEO, Ralph Vince. The Leverage Space Portfolio (LSP) strategy seeks to maximize the probability of equity portfolio profitability by employing a risk-control process focused on capital preservation and drawdown management. Compared to a traditional buy-and-hold portfolio, an LSP-based portfolio aims for more consistent returns with lower risk. The indexes, scheduled to be launched in the second half of 2011, can serve as the basis of both passive and active investment funds, including exchange-traded funds, mutual funds, and institutional accounts, around the world.

“We believe the marketplace will welcome our new family of indexes that applies this unique portfolio risk-management theory,” said Michael A. Petronella, President, Dow Jones Indexes. “These innovative techniques aspire to change the paradigm of the professional investment management process while providing Dow Jones Indexes with an opportunity to expand our roster of risk-based indexes.” Dow Jones Indexes has fully automated all elements of the LSP strategy, allowing for universal, systematic, and transparent application of a rules-based strategy to equity portfolios of any size or composition.

“The association with Dow Jones Indexes is, to us, a commercial validation on the highest order of our portfolio management ideas,” LSP Partners’ Mr. Vince said. “We're extremely proud to collaborate with the world’s foremost index provider.”
