V-Square Planet Positive Overlay (PPO)

Rebalance your Portfolio, Rebalance the Planet

"We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them." – Albert Einstein

The roadmap for sustainable opportunities and economic growth requires innovative investment solutions. The Planet Positive Overlay (PPO) by V-Square Quantitative Management LLC (V-Square) is an innovative approach that integrates a carbon accounting tool powered by IntercontinentalExchange® (ICE) overlayed with planet positive climate credits in projects such as bio-oil, afforestation, direct air capture or regenerative agriculture vetted by Patch* across a range of technologies and geographies.

By incorporating the V-Square PPO overlay, investment portfolios are designed to align with and promote sustainable practices, supporting the transition to a lower carbon economy.

This overlay takes into account a range of factors, such as carbon footprint, resource efficiency, renewable energy, waste management, and social impact.

By implementing a Planet Positive Overlay, investors can, not only generate financial returns through their existing managers, but also contribute to positive environmental outcomes. This approach recognizes the growing importance of sustainable investing and the need to address pressing financial and environmental challenges.

Together, we can make a difference for our planet and future generations.

All investments involve risk, including potential loss of principal invested. Past performance does not guarantee future performance. Individual client accounts may vary. The strategies and/or investments referenced herein may not be suitable for all investors as the appropriateness of a particular investment or strategy will depend on an investor’s individual circumstances and objectives. Recipients should not rely upon this information as a substitute for obtaining specific advice from their own professional advisors.

Trademarks are the property of their respective owners. This summary is provided for illustrative purposes only and does not include all material elements of the V-Square Planet Positive Overlay (PPO). Actual investment universe may vary depending on client needs. Investors may not invest directly in an index. Performance of an investment account that tracks an index with an overlay will differ due to such fees and expenses and tracking differences. Such fees and expenses will reduce performance and have a compounding effect over time. Index returns do not reflect any management fees, transaction costs or expenses. Investment advisory fees are described in the V-Square Quantitative Management LLC Form ADV Part 2A. A strategy or emphasis on environmental, social and governance factors (“ESG”) may limit the investment opportunities available to a portfolio. Therefore, the portfolio may underperform or perform differently than other portfolios that do not have an ESG investment focus.

Passive Investment Risk. The strategy is not actively managed and therefore will generally not sell a security due to current or projected underperformance of a security, industry or sector, unless that security is removed from the Underlying Index or the selling of the security is otherwise required upon a rebalancing of the Underlying Index.

Methodology Risks. The Index Provider relies on various sources of information to assess the criteria of issuers included in the Underlying Index, including information that may be based on assumptions and estimates. Neither the Adviser nor the Index Provider can offer assurances that Underlying Index’s calculation methodology or sources of information will provide an accurate assessment of included issuers or that the included issuers will provide the strategy with the market exposure it seeks.
