Fund Description
FlexShares Real Assets Allocation Index Fund seeks to gain exposure to real assets by investing in three FlexShares ETFs: FlexShares Morningstar Global Upstream Natural Resources Index Fund (GUNR), FlexShares STOXX Global Broad Infrastructure Index Fund (NFRA) and FlexShares Global Quality Real Estate Index Fund (GQRE). It seeks to provide investors with a core real assets allocation that helps address their inflation-hedging, diversification, and income needs. Designed to serve as a real assets allocation solution, the strategy applies a proprietary optimization to the three underlying funds in an effort to minimize the volatility of returns and lower risk in the fund. Additional constraints are in place to limit concentration risk. If occurring, dividends from net investment income are generally declared and paid quarterly. Distributions of net realized securities gains, if any, are generally declared and paid once a year, but the Fund may make such distributions on a more frequent basis.
