Endowment Index® Gains +4.07% During Q3 as Bull Market in Private & Global Public Equities Continues

APPLETON, Wis., Oct. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Endowment Index® calculated by Nasdaq OMX® closed at an all-time high of 1,215.48 to end the third quarter of 2017, an increase of +4.07% on a total return basis over its 2Q closing price.  Comparatively, the S&P 500 gained 4.48% during this same period.  The Endowment Index® has gained +13.37% in 2017, vs. 14.24% for the S&P 500.

The broad and favorable upward bias of global markets from the first half of 2017 continued into the 3rd quarter.  All but one of the Index's 19 components posted gains during Q3. Energy & natural resources- metals & mining (+14.66%) and oil & gas (+7.69%) were the two best performing components.  However, their relatively small weighting provided nominal contribution to the Index's increase.  Private equity, along with all 4 equity components (domestic, international-developed, international-emerging market and international-emerging market/China) comprised 62% of the Index's gain during Q3.  The only declining component was managed futures, which closed the quarter with a fractional loss.
