Got a great story on an S&P 500 index fund that you won’t believe.

Here is the performance since inception relative to SPY from 2/2004 to 3/2015:


The results are hypothetical results and are NOT an indicator of future results and do NOT represent returns that any investor actually attained. Indexes are unmanaged, do not reflect management or trading fees, and one cannot invest directly in an index. Additional information regarding the construction of these results is available upon request.
