We’re pleased to formally announce our Relative Alpha® funds and globally diversified investment approach.
Our conviction has grown as we have researched and incubated these strategies over the past few years.
Relative Alpha® funds have consistently produced alpha in both up and down markets relative to their peer groups1,2 and have provided full transparency, daily liquidity, and remarkable tax efficiency.
They’re also much less expensive.
Long-Term Consistency of Relative Alpha®
Outside research has shown that Relative Alpha® indices, which these funds track to within hundredths of a percentage point, have outperformed the following percentages of peer group funds for the trailing 15-year period ending 12/31/183:
More complex strategies are available in the marketplace, and we appreciate how they are created and positioned.
As past senior leaders inside large investment houses, the founders of FWP helped develop, present and implement many intricate and tactical approaches.
However, when comparing the performance of a global balanced portfolio of Relative Alpha® strategies to what many consider the most thoroughly resourced and researched funds in the world, top quartile U.S. Endowments and Foundations, we found the following:
The Relative Alpha® portfolio ranked in the top quartile for every single 10-year fiscal period starting in June of 2000 and running through June of 20183 (nine consecutive 10-year periods ending in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018).
We are proud of our approach and pleased to make the advantages of Relative Alpha® available to both individuals and institutions in a form that is low cost, transparent, liquid, tax efficient and easy for all investors to understand.

What types of funds make up our Relative Alpha® approach?
Many say that all investing is relative to other alternatives (opportunity cost or benefit of one choice over another).
If this is so, index funds and ETFs have consistently produced Relative Alpha®.
In trademarking the term, we are not actually launching a new fund or strategy.
Since the founding of our firm, we have been constructing portfolios using Relative Alpha® index funds.
We are simply trying to change the way index funds, and investment approaches that use them, are perceived.
As an example, if you are invested in index funds and hear someone downplaying these so-called passive funds, you could simply nod and say this:
“I’m investing in a Relative Alpha® fund strategy.
The approach is low cost, fully transparent, completely liquid, tax efficient, and has consistently outperformed many top endowments over many decades.”
My bet is that they would want to hear more and want to invest.
The good news is that any individual, family or institution, regardless of asset size, has been able to invest in Relative Alpha® strategies for many years and still can.
They are called index funds and the portfolios that are constructed with them.
