Does a 1 year performance matter? Look at the performance since inception. Compare volatility and performance to SP500.

This is probably what most of us do because it's a benchmark relevant to our own investments, but it (probably) isn't a good benchmark for Pure Alpha II.

When compared to similar investments, I have no idea if 0% is a good or bad return for Pure Alpha II, and the article doesn't provide any indication either. It's like quoting the return of a Total Bond fund and implying it's bad because the Total Market did much better.
