A long-term high: with a 76% performance, theScreener is beating the benchmarks

26 April 2012

Portfolios managed by the theScreener method got ahead of major indices with an outstanding performance of 76% from January 2002 to March 2012. In years with downhill movement these portfolios registered up to 50% lower losses compared to its benchmarks.

The statistics give further proof that the theScreener method performs above average in the long run and shows much lower reductions in downturn phases than the big benchmarks in Europe, USA, Switzerland, Germany, Italy and France.

Alain Farwagi, Head of Development at theScreener, sees this as a confirmation of the objective method applied by theScreener: “In a volatile stock exchange environment, in which prices are likely to fall for months, the emotion-free analysis prove particularly helpful. In such difficult situations, investors need a guide they can rely on."

Out of 7 good years so far, portfolios managed by theScreener method have done 5 times better than the corresponding indices. The losses in the 3 bad years, however, always turned out to be lower than those shown by the benchmarks.

PF Mix: 76.34%; average of the portfolios managed with the theScreener method, CH, FR, DE, IT, EU, US

Index Comp: -9.35%; average of SMI, CAC40, DAX30, FTSE MIB, EURO STOXX50, SP500

All data is obtained by a standardised method. The graphics and statistics of the portfolios’ performance compared to its benchmarks can be ordered for editorial purposes.
