SWM Canadian Energy Income Index® Announces Quarterly Rebalance

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Sept. 30, 2010) - Sustainable Wealth Management Ltd., an independent provider of industry specific fundamental indexes, today announced the rebalancing of the SWM Canadian Energy Income Index® (SWMEIT – Bloomberg). The index is rebalanced according to the swings in the quarterly price of WTI crude oil versus its 4 quarter moving average. There have been six asset allocation switches since inception of the index on June 30, 2004. 

Current Asset Allocation (Q3, 2010):   Bear Mode

New Asset Allocation (Q4, 2010):   Bear Mode  
       
        Oil Sands   30 %
        Canadian Royalty Trusts   70 %

The index has seen significant income over the last six years as the record energy prices have boosted the earnings of the constituents in the index. Historically the index has a trailing 12 month yield that has averaged of 5.98% with a range of 16.66% to 2.30%. The current yield based on the prior 12 months is 4.25% and is projected to increase to 5.80% after the quarterly rebalance.
