The GFD US-100 index includes the top 50 companies from 1850 to 1900 and the top 100 companies from 1900 to the present. In January of each year, the largest companies in the United States are ranked by capital, and the largest companies are selected as part of the index for that year. The following year, a new list is created and it is chain-linked with the previous year’s index. The index is capital-based, and both price and return indicators are calculated. The GFD U.S. Bond Index uses U.S. government bonds approaching 10-year maturity, not exceeding 10 years from 1786 to 1941, and the Federal Reserve’s 10-year constant maturity yield begins in 1941. Each month, changes in the price of the underlying bond are calculated to determine any capital gain or loss. The index captures a fun portfolio that pays interest on a monthly basis. Dividend / interest coupons are reinvested in their respective indexes assuming all returns. The average income is the geometric average
