addandremoveFav

Objective

  • De-concentrate country, currency, and individual company risks in developed market economies (ex US)
  • Seek reduced volatility and drawdown risk and improve returns (relative to capitalization weighted developed international equity indexes (ex U.S.) over a complete market cycle.

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, quality, and volatility characteristics. The methodology seeks to further address active risks versus the capitalization-weighted universe by managing size, country, and liquidity risks. The Index seeks to harvest risk premia factors through systematic risk- and factor-weighting twice annually, with a reconstitution occurring in March and September.
