Performance of the Harvest Cash Alternative Strategy over four years.

Though holding cash is a sure bet, your gains will be minimal given the extremely low cash deposit interest rates. A world of low deposit returns is challenging for investors. Many are looking for solutions that have the potential to generate higher returns without taking significantly higher levels of risk. The Harvest Cash Alternative Strategy looks to address this.

The chart and table below show the performance of the Harvest Cash Alternative Strategy vs. cash deposits over the past four years assuming an equal holding in all three selected funds. An investor in this strategy could have earned almost 23% over the past four years compared with less than 4% from cash deposits. It is our expectation that future returns of the three selected funds will not be as high as recent years but should be comfortably ahead of cash deposits.
