Ratings History may not be used or disseminated in a manner that would serve as a substitute for any S&P Global Ratings product or service for which a fee is charged. This restriction is not intended to prevent the use of the Ratings History in accordance with the SEC’s stated objectives for SEC Rule 17g-7(b).

Notwithstanding the foregoing, Non-Historical Ratings may not (i) be compiled into a database; (ii) be used or disseminated in a manner that would serve as a substitute for any S&P Global product or service for which a fee is charged; or (iii) be systematically distributed or shared.

3.2 S&P Dow Jones Indices. Unless otherwise permitted, S&P Dow Jones Indices (“SPDJI”) data may be used solely for internal business purposes. You understand and agree that you shall not: (i) use the SPDJI data to create, issue, manage, sponsor or develop any financial products (including, without limitation, derivatives, funds, structured products or contracts for difference) or asset management where the price, return and/or performance of such product is based on or intended to track any index published by SPDJI including, without limitation, customized versions thereof, such as direct indexing; (ii) use the SPDJI data to create or develop indices, a classification system or historical databases; (iii) create any derived data based on the SPDJI data, except with SPDJI’s express written consent; (or) disclose, duplicate, display, redistribute, resell or otherwise convey the SPDJI data or any portion thereof internally within your organization except to other authorized end users of the relevant SPDJI services or externally to any third party.
SPDJI licenses its indices for use with financial products and receives compensation in connection with such licensing. SPDJI does not make any representation or warranty, express or implied, to the owners of such financial products or any member of the public regarding the advisability of investing in such financial products or the ability of SPDJI’s indices to track market performance. SPDJI is not a fiduciary, investment advisor, commodity trading advisor, commodity pool operator or a broker dealer. Inclusion of a security, commodity, cryptocurrency or other asset within an index is not a recommendation by SPDJI to buy, sell, or hold such security, commodity, cryptocurrency or other asset, nor is it considered to be investment advice or commodity trading advice. The opinions, observations, and analysis of SPDJI included within this Website are statements of opinion as of the date they are expressed and not statements of fact or recommendations to purchase, hold, or sell any securities, other assets or make any investment decisions. SPDJI assumes no obligation to update any Content included within this Website following publication. Users of the Website should not rely on any of the Content in making any investment decision. SPDJI’s opinions, observations and analyses do not address the suitability of any security or other asset. While SPDJI has obtained information from sources it believes to be reliable, SPDJI does not perform an audit and undertakes no duty of due diligence or independent verification of any information it receives.
PERFORMANCE DISCLOSURE/BACK-TESTED DATA. All SPDJI Index information presented on the Website prior to an index’s Launch Date is hypothetical (back-tested), not actual performance. The back-test calculations are based on the same methodology that was in effect on the index Launch Date. However, when creating back-tested history for periods of market anomalies or other periods that do not reflect the general current market environment, index methodology rules may be relaxed to capture a large enough universe of securities to simulate the target market the index is designed to measure or strategy the index is designed to capture. For example, market capitalization and liquidity thresholds may be reduced. Complete index methodology details are available at www.spdji.com. Past performance of the Index is not an indication of future results. Back-tested performance reflects application of an index methodology and selection of index constituents with the benefit of hindsight and knowledge of factors that may have positively affected its performance, cannot account for all financial risk that may affect results and may be considered to reflect survivor/look ahead bias. Actual returns may differ significantly from, and be lower than, back-tested returns. Past performance is not an indication or guarantee of future results. Please refer to the methodology for the index for more details about the index, including the manner in which it is rebalanced, the timing of such rebalancing, criteria for additions and deletions, as well as all index calculations. Back-tested performance is for use with institutions only, not for use with retail investors.
SPDJI defines various dates to assist our clients in providing transparency. The First Value Date is the first day for which there is a calculated value (either live or back-tested) for a given index. The Base Date is the date at which the index is set to a fixed value for calculation purposes. The Launch Date designates the date when the values of an index are first considered live: index values provided for any date or time period prior to the index’s Launch Date are considered back-tested. SPDJI defines the Launch Date as the date by which the values of an index are known to have been released to the public, for example via the company’s public Website or its data feed to external parties. For Dow Jones-branded indices introduced prior to May 31, 2013, the “Launch Date” (which prior to May 31, 2013, was termed “Date of introduction”) is set at a date upon which no further changes were permitted to be made to the index methodology, but that may have been prior to the Index’s public release date.
Typically, when SPDJI creates back-tested index data, SPDJI uses actual historical constituent-level data (e.g., historical price, market capitalization, and corporate action data) in its calculations. As ESG investing is still in early stages of development, certain datapoints used to calculate S&P DJI’s ESG indices may not be available for the entire desired period of back-tested history. The same data availability issue could be true for other indices as well. In cases when actual data is not available for all relevant historical periods, SPDJI may employ a process of using “Backward Data Assumption” (or pulling back) of ESG data for the calculation of back-tested historical performance. “Backward Data Assumption” is a process that applies the earliest actual live data point available for an index constituent company to all prior historical instances in the index performance. For example, Backward Data Assumption inherently assumes that companies currently not involved in a specific business activity (also known as “product involvement”) were never involved historically and similarly also assumes that companies currently involved in a specific business activity were involved historically too. The Backward Data Assumption allows the hypothetical back-test to be extended over more historical years than would be feasible using only actual data. For more information on “Backward Data Assumption” please refer to the FAQ. The methodology and factsheets of any index that employs backward assumption in the back-tested history will explicitly state so. The methodology will include an Appendix with a table setting forth the specific data points and relevant time period for which backward projected data was used.
Index returns shown do not represent the results of actual trading of investable assets/securities. SPDJI maintains the index and calculates the index levels and performance shown or discussed but does not manage actual assets. Index returns do not reflect payment of any sales charges or fees an investor may pay to purchase the securities underlying the index or investment funds that are intended to track the performance of the index. The imposition of these fees and charges would cause actual and back-tested performance of the securities/fund to be lower than the Index performance shown. As a simple example, if an index returned 10% on a US $100,000 investment for a 12-month period (or US $10,000) and an actual asset-based fee of 1.5% was imposed at the end of the period on the investment plus accrued interest (or US $1,650), the net return would be 8.35% (or US $8,350) for the year. Over a three-year period, an annual 1.5% fee taken at year end with an assumed 10% return per year would result in a cumulative gross return of 33.10%, a total fee of US $5,375, and a cumulative net return of 27.2% (or US $27,200).
