* The overall yield and the average annual yield represent data for the period from 1 January 2015 to 31 December 2023.

Average annual yield

The average annual yield is calculated as the geometric average of gross returns for individual years of the investment period. This figure accounts for compound interest rates (i.e. a reinvestment of portfolio returns) as well as possible fluctuations of returns over the investment period, therefore is suitable to represent a portfolio performance.

Overall yield

The overall yield is an actual (gross) rate of return on investment over the investment period. The overall yield accounts for compound interest, capital gains and dividends.


A benchmark is generally an index against which a performance of a comparable fund or a portfolio is compared to. Hence benchmarks for individual WEM portfolios differ based on their specifications, risk level and geographical focus.
After selecting a benchmark from a dropdown list, the bottom performance chart will show you an overview of the alpha - the portfolio outperformance over a selected benchmark over a selected investment period.
Portfolios with no available benchmark will only have the "NONE" option available.

Gross and net performance

Gross performance is calculated as the total return on an investment before fees, commissions and taxes and includes compound interest, capital gains and dividends.
Net performance is gross performance net of fees, commissions, and taxes.

Current performance

Current performance shows gross performance for the selected investment period.

1. The entry fee is a third party fee and is paid in full to the financial agent who mediated the conclusion of the Portfolio Management Agreement. WEM is entitled to charge the fee.

2. The management fee is charged monthly, as a percentage of the average value of the client portfolio for the given month. The fee does not include third party fees (e.g. stock exchange fees, bank fees, etc.).

3. 5. High-water mark is a principle of charging fees based on their highest cumulative past peak value. In this case, a fee will only be charged if the portfolio reaches a higher value of its cumulative returns or only from the part that exceeds the previous highest cumulative value of returns. Applied here is the sliding high-water mark for the past 2 periods (2 years).
