Summary. Investments with low **correlations** **to** the **S&P** **500** can provide diversification benefits. These investments often represent different **asset** classes as opposed to individual stocks. A basket.. Correlations are calculated using the monthly total returns of each index. All correlations are measured vs. the S&P 500 Index. Index information is provided for illustrative purposes only and is not meant to represent the performance of a fund. The index returns do not include any management fees, transaction costs or expenses is completely random. A negative correlation means that they tend to move in exactly opposite directions. For example, when returns on some asset classes were declining, returns on others were gaining, or perhaps declining less.
