For HYPOTHETICAL back-tested performance data shown in this video, including sources, updates, and important disclosures, see ifabt.com. Indexes are labeled with letters to designate the index name and are defined at indexdescriptions.com. The HYPOTHETICAL back-tested performance of the indexes was achieved with the benefit of hindsight; it does not represent actual investment strategies for the entire period; and it does not reflect the impact that economic and market factors may have had on the advisor's decision making if the advisor were actually managing client money during the period shown. Unless indicated otherwise, the performance of the IFA Indexes when shown individually, does reflect the deduction of mutual fund fees, include reinvestment of dividends and capital gains but does not include the deduction of IFA advisory fees, transaction costs or taxes, which if included, would lower performance. IFA Indexes were created by IFA in 2000. Past performance does not guarantee future results. IFA utilizes "standard deviation" as a quantification of risk, see the definition in the IFA glossary
