Obermatt monitors the performance of its portfolios and runs backtesting to see how well the Top 10 stocks perform against the market index. These analyses are to be viewed with caution, since so many factors can influence the outcome. Factors such as the time period taken for comparison, foreign exchange movements, weighting of stocks prevent an objective view on the performance of any selection of stocks. We believe in the methodology and analysis and invest our own funds in the index.
