Quarterly Update from the IAC
The past year has been a good year for investors in the US as the Dow Jones Index Fund was up by almost 10% for the year and the S&P 500 Index Fund was up more than 13%. The bond market remains strong, as interest rates of all durations remain at historically low levels. The international equity markets and domestic small caps have not fared as well; you can see the net effect in our Fund E results included in this report. In spite of this one year blip in large cap domestic stock prices we have remained in our asset allocation model for the long term return on assets. We continue to have both stock funds that invest in the international market and funds that invest in small cap stocks in our portfolio. The common stock allocation has not deviated from our plan.
