Fund Description
FlexShares Morningstar Developed Markets ex-US Market Factor Tilt Index ETF seeks to enhance exposure to the broad international stock market by tilting the portfolio toward the long-term growth potential of the small cap and value segments. It seeks to provide investors with an expanded opportunity set of developed market stocks from outside the U.S. to help meet their longer term capital appreciation needs. Designed to replace traditional market-weighted international equity products, the Fund applies a tilt to smaller cap and value stocks using a multi-factor modeling approach that attempts to enhance portfolio risk/return characteristics. Realized capital gains and income dividends are anticipated to be declared and paid at least annually.
