Fund Description
FlexShares Morningstar Emerging Market Factor Tilt Index ETF seeks to enhance exposure to developing market stocks by tilting the portfolio toward the long-term growth potential of the small cap and value segments. It seeks to provide investors with an emerging market equity option that helps to meet their longer term capital appreciation needs. Designed to replace traditional market-weighted emerging market 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.
