Fund Description
Franklin U.S. Low Volatility High Dividend Index ETF seeks to track the investment results of an index composed of equity securities of U.S. companies with relatively high yield and low price and earnings volatility. The QS Low Volatility High Dividend Index (the Index ) seeks to provide more stable income through investment in stocks of profitable U.S. companies with relatively high dividend yields and lower price and earnings volatility. The Index is based on a proprietary methodology created and sponsored by QS Investors, LLC ( QS ). The Index is composed of stocks of U.S. companies across a wide range of market capitalizations, including the largest 3,000 U.S. stocks as determined by the Solactive US Broad Market Index. Stocks in the Index must have demonstrated profitability over the last four fiscal quarters as a whole. Stocks whose yields are not supported by earnings are excluded from the Index. The methodology calculates a composite stable yield score, with the yield of stocks with relatively high price and earnings volatility adjusted downward and the yield of stocks with relatively low price and earnings volatility adjusted upward. QS anticipates that the number of component securities in the Index will range from 50 to 100. As initially constituted and balanced, no individual component of the Index will exceed 2.5% of the Index, no individual sector (as defined by QS) will exceed 25% of the Index, and real estate investment trust ( REITs ) components as a whole will not exceed 15% of the Index. The Index s components are reconstituted annually and rebalanced quarterly. The composition of the Index after annual reconstitution and rebalancing may fluctuate and exceed the aforementioned limits due to market movements. The components of the Underlying Index, and the degree to which these components represent certain sectors and industries, may change over time.
