What is SinDex?
SinDex is an actively managed portfolio that seeks long-term growth by investing in companies with strong fundamentals and business operations that fall under one of the Seven Deadly Sins—also referred to as the “Seven Vices.” SinDex invests in US equity securities but has the ability to take positions in exchange-traded funds (ETFs), mutual funds, fixed-income securities, foreign equities, options and other derivatives, as appropriate. The investment thesis behind the portfolio is that companies operating in industries associated with the Seven Deadly Sins may provide investors with optimal asset allocation and return dynamics.
What are the Seven Deadly Sins?
The Seven Deadly Sins trace their lineage back to the Bible. While not specifically grouped and numbered in order, each one is mentioned as forbidden by God. Further work by philosophers and theologians in subsequent centuries further canonized these sins into the seven that would eventually rise into the popular zeitgeist. Perhaps the most famous person to chronicle the Seven Deadly Sins was Dante, who did so in the 14th century. He wrote a series of three epic poems—collectively known as the Divine Comedy—in which he journeys through different levels of hell and encounters the Seven Deadly Sins during his travels.
