Price/Earnings Ratio - Price-to-earnings (P/E) is the ratio of the market price of a firm’s common stock to its current (or predicted) earnings per share. Price/Book Ratio - Price-to-book value (P/B) is a ratio used to compare a stock's market value with its book value. It is calculated by dividing the current closing price of the stock by the latest quarter’s book value (assets minus liabilities).

Price/Book Ratio - Price-to-book value (P/B) is a ratio used to compare a stock's market value with its book value. It is calculated by dividing the current closing price of the stock by the latest quarter’s book value (assets minus liabilities).

Return on Equity is the percentage a company earns on its total equity for the time period listed. The calculation is net income divided by end-of-year net worth. The resulting figure is multiplied by 100.

Median Market Cap is the midpoint of market capitalization (market price multiplied by the number of shares outstanding) of the stocks in a portfolio. Half the stocks in the portfolio will have higher market capitalizations; half will have lower.

Weighted Avg Market Cap - Weighted average market cap is the average market capitalization of corporations in a fund or index, weighted by the percentage of the holding in the fund or index.

Earnings per share (EPS) growth is a figure that represents the annualized rate of net-income-per-share growth over the trailing five-year period for the stocks held by a portfolio.

Investment Philosophy
We believe that successful growth investing is best achieved through a process that optimizes information, ensures decision-making freedom, and requires accountability within a framework of oversight and risk management.
  • Research

    Investments are selected using a process between the portfolio managers and the global research analysts, with each analyst responsible for generating investment ideas across their areas of expertise.
  • Challenge

    Investment ideas can emanate from both the portfolio manager and global analyst teams.
  • Leaders

    The strategy applies a diversified approach to growth investing. The team does not apply a single definition of growth at the portfolio level: rather, analysts define growth at the industry level.
  • Portfolio Construction

    The fund invests in those companies in which the portfolio managers have the highest degree of conviction or have identified a strong near-term catalyst for earnings growth or share price appreciation.
  • Risk Management

    Risk is managed at the portfolio level, which includes both factor analysis and stock-specific risk analysis.

Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. No investment strategy or risk management technique can guarantee returns or eliminate risk in any market environment.

Performance information is based on the Composite.

Net returns assume the reinvestment of dividends, and are net of a 3.0% annual account advisory fee. Gross returns assume the reinvestment of dividends, but do not reflect the deduction of any account advisory fees or other expenses that an investor would pay, which would reduce returns.

The US Large Cap Growth Equity Composite (“Institutional Composite”) is being shown as representative of the BNYM Newton Large Cap Growth Strategy (“SMA Strategy”). The Institutional Composite is managed by the same investment team using a substantially similar investment process that is used for the SMA Strategy. The SMA Strategy is provided on a non-discretionary basis, model-only basis. Although BNY Mellon Securities Corporation, the SMA manager of record, believes that the Institutional Composite is representative of the SMA Strategy, there may be material differences between the Institutional Composite and the SMA Strategy. Net of fee performance is shown using a fee of 3%, which is the historical industry standard in the wrap account industry, as additional information. Please note that this figure may double count certain transaction expenses that are embedded in the Institutional Composite's gross of fees performance and the 3% model wrap fee.

Returns for less than one year are not annualized.

The composite’s benchmark is the Russell 1000® Growth Index. The Russell 1000® Growth Index measures the performance of the large-cap growth segment of the U.S. equity market. Investors cannot invest directly in any index.

        Standard deviation - It is a statistical measure of the degree to which an individual portfolio return tends to vary from the mean, based on the entire population. The greater the degree of dispersion, the greater the degree of risk. In mutual funds, the standard deviation tells us how much the return on the fund is deviating from the expected normal returns.

        Alpha - It is a measure of a security's or portfolio's excess return.

        Beta - It is a measure of a security's or portfolio's volatility, or systematic risk.

        R-Squared - It is a statistical measure that represents the percentage of a fund's or security’s movements that are explained by movements in a benchmark index.

        Sharpe Ratio - It is a risk-adjusted measure that measures reward per unit of risk.

        Tracking Error - is a measure of the volatility of excess returns relative to a benchmark.

        Information Ratio - is a geometric measure of risk-adjusted performance. The Information Ratio is a version of the Sharpe Ratio, but unlike the Sharpe Ratio, the benchmark does not have to be the risk-free return.
