Our multi-asset risk parity indexes measure the performance of multi-asset risk parity strategies that allocate risk equally among three risk baskets – equity, rates and inflation – while targeting specific ex-ante volatility levels. Each risk basket contains a diverse, representative set of highly liquid futures to help capture main asset class risk drivers and minimize index turnover.
Our real estate indexes help investors measure and better understand the performance of the real estate market. Introduced in 1991, they comprise publicly traded real estate equity securities and help provide a more accurate reflection of the performance of real estate held by pension funds.
The Wilshire Bond Index measures the performance of fixed income securities held by US institutional investors. Introduced in 2016, it provides a more accurate view of the performance and risks in the US fixed income market based on institutional investments held than bond market indexes that track issue-based holdings.
Our target income indexes measure investment strategies that offer broad exposure to income-producing asset classes through exchange-traded funds (ETFs). Launched in 2018, they aim to achieve set, annualized target income yields while minimizing overall portfolio risk.
This index measures a strategy that provides optimized diversification to the US large-cap equity market. Launched in 2015, it selects companies from the Wilshire US Large Cap Index to capture a higher level of stock-specific risk while maintaining diversified exposure to market sectors. Securities are weighted based on correlation and risk.
The Wilshire BDC Index measures the performance of publicly traded business development company securities that focus on debt financing of small, developing and financially distressed companies.
Our US style indexes help investors evaluate the performance of an active manager’s investment style. Launched in 1986, they are designed to help investors quantify a portfolio’s growth, value and size characteristics. Growth and value are defined by six factors: projected price-to-earnings ratio, projected earnings growth, price-to-book ratio, dividend yield, trailing revenue growth and trailing earnings growth.
