†Backtesting, and related cautions:
Please note the following cautions related to the Sierra Tactical Bond Program (based on SEC requirements): (a) backtested data does not represent actual account performance and should not be interpreted as an indication of such performance; (b) there is no assurance that the backtested result could, or would have, been achieved during the years presented; and (c) the backtested portion of the performance data does not represent the impact that material economic and market factors might have on an investment manager’s decision-making if the manager were actually managing client money. In addition, the SEC mandates that we state: The investment strategy that the backtested data were based upon can (theoretically) be changed at any time without the benefit of hindsight in order to show better backtested performance, and (theoretically) the strategy can continue to be tested and adjusted until the desired results are achieved. Please note that at an affiliate of Ocean Park we have actually implemented the same Buy and Sell signals for High Yield Corporate Bond funds in client accounts since 1987, and no such “data fitting” adjustments have in fact been made in the data presented here.
