- Seeks to diversify across property types and invests deeper into the US REIT universe, where there may be more opportunity for growth

Description of Methodology
The rules-based, proprietary methodology employs a multi-layered risk-controlled approach that seeks to de-concentrate individual security risks while selecting companies exhibiting favorable risk premia factors including quality, momentum, and value. The Strategy Index seeks to harvest risk premia factors through systematic risk- and factor-weighting twice annually, with a reconstitution occurring in March and September.
