Advanced/professional short-term investors should note that IPAR has negative skewness in it's return distribution. This indicates that investors may need to stay invested through long periods of drawdown before expecting a recovery.

SP500 index has more chance of extreme outcomes than IPAR. Therefore, SP500 must receive a lower allocation than IPAR in your portfolio. SP500 index usually has shorter drawdown period than IPAR.
