"S&P 500" is an abbreviation for the Standard & Poor's 500 Total Return Index, a market-value weighted index of 500 stocks chosen to reflect the risk/return characteristics of the large cap universe and one of the common benchmarks for the US stock market. The MSCI KLD 400 Social Index comprises companies with high Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) ratings and excludes companies involved in Alcohol, Gambling, Tobacco, Military Weapons, Civilian Firearms, Nuclear Power, Adult Entertainment, and Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO). The Index aims to serve as a benchmark for investors whose objectives include owning companies with very high ESG ratings and avoiding companies that are incompatible with specific values-based criteria. Comparison to the S&P 500 Index and MSCI KLD 400 is shown for illustrative purposes only. Swell's portfolios differ from these benchmarks in that, among other factors, Swell's portfolios are managed, primarily comprised of small and mid cap stocks, are not diversified, bear fees, and may vary materially in volatility. Past performance is not indicative of future results.
