The S&P Risk Parity Indices seek to measure the performance of a multi-asset strategy that allocates risk equally among equity, fixed income, and commodities futures contracts. Within each asset class, the indices also maintain an equal risk exposure to each individual futures contract. The balanced risk contribution is designed to offer diversification that may reduce risk without sacrificing return across different economic cycles. The indices are also designed to serve as benchmarks for risk parity funds.
