Description

The index is designed to provide exposure to a high-quality, income-oriented portfolio of international equity securities issued by non-U.S.-based companies, with an emphasis on long-term capital growth and a targeted overall volatility that is lower than that of the Northern Trust International Large Cap Index. Companies included in the Underlying Index are a subset of the Parent Index, and are selected based on expected dividend payment and fundamental factors , such as profitability, solid management and reliable cash flow, as determined by NTI. The Underlying Index is designed to outperform the Parent Index on a risk-adjusted basis, with respect to a combination of dividend yield and capital appreciation, then follows a rules-based methodology to calculate optimal weights for securities in the Underlying Index based upon a targeted overall beta generally between 0.5 to 1.0 times that of the Parent Index, dividend yield, quality factors and lower total risk.
