Equity Allocation Adapting to Market Changes

Balanced Fund Equity Allocation in Relation to Market Volatility (12/31/97 – 3/31/20)

Cboe Volatility Index® or VIX® Index® shows the market’s expectation of 30-day volatility. It is constructed using the implied volatilities of a wide range of S&P 500® index options and is a widely used measure of market risk. The VIX Index volatility methodology is the property of Chicago Board of Options Exchange, which is not affiliated with Janus Henderson
