QLC

Fund Description
FlexShares US Quality Large Cap Index Fund attempts to provide investors a US large cap equity portfolio with long-term growth potential. Designed to replace traditional large cap equity products, the strategy applies a model that ranks securities in the large cap universe based on quality, value and momentum factors. Exposure to the factors is optimized, with sector, style and security level constraints, to maintain a similar risk profile to the original universe. 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.
