Description of Methodology

The rules-based proprietary methodology employs a multi-layered risk-optimized approach that seeks to achieve its diversification, 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, 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.
