There has been extreme market turmoil in 2020. The U.S. stock market transitioned out of an eleven-year bull run into the fastest bear market plunge in history, the U.S. Central bank stepped in to rescue corporate bonds, the U.S. Government has embarked on a massive stimulus spending plan to offset the economic stress from COVID-19, and for the first time in history the price of crude oil futures went negative.
Amid these market conditions, as of April 30th, the Standpoint Multi-Asset fund (BLNDX) returned a positive 2.30% Year-To-Date (YTD), in comparison to the S&P 500, which returned -9.29% YTD, and the fund’s primary benchmark (50% MSCI World/50% ICE BAML 3-month T-Bill), which returned -5.83% YTD. The Standpoint Multi-Asset Fund also strives to reduce the amount of downside risk, which it has done so far this year with a max decline of -9.33% in comparison to the S&P 500 which suffered a max decline of -33.79%, and the fund’s primary benchmark which declined -17.03%.
