Description of Methodology
The rules-based, proprietary methodology employs a multi-layered risk-controlled approach that seeks to lower concentration among individual stocks and enhance returns by emphasizing 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.
