QDF

Fund Description
QDF seeks to provide exposure to the long-term growth potential of U.S. securities while providing dividend payments. It is intended as a core stock market option that also helps investors try to meet their income needs. The strategy applies a proprietary scoring model approach that determines a "quality factor" and an optimization process that seeks to maximize this factor, match the beta of the Parent Index (Northern Trust 1250) and improve on the Parent Indexs dividend yield.
