About Us

Slickcharts was founded by a group of private investors seeking to passively invest and earn better returns than the S&P 500. Accurate and up-to-date index weights were required to build custom portfolios based on holdings in the S&P 500.

Using a custom index based on adjustments to the original S&P 500 it is possible to increase returns and also take advantage of tax reducing strategies such as tax loss harvesting. With the introduction of commission-free brokers it is now possible to buy hundreds of companies directly without any concern for costs. Purchasing individual holdings of an index gives greater flexibility for investors and should increase returns if done properly. With the introduction of fractional shares and commission free trades by major brokers there's never been a better time to build your own index fund.
