Description of Methodology
The rules-based proprietary methodology employs a multi-layered risk-controlled approach that seeks to achieve its de-concentration, risk-reduction, and return objectives by selecting companies with favorable diversified risk premia expression, including valuation, momentum, and quality characteristics. The Index seeks to harvest risk premia factors through systematic risk- and factor-weighting twice annually, with a reconstitution occurring in March and September.
