ASET Fund Description

The FlexShares Real Assets Allocation Index Fund is a fund-of-funds ETF that gives investors diversified exposure to real assets.

ASET Factset Analytics Insight

ASET is designed to serve as a core real asset allocation by investing in three of FlexShares own ETFs: FlexShares Morningstar Global Upstream Natural Resources Index Fund (GUNR), FlexShares STOXX Global Broad Infrastructure Index Fund (NFRA) and FlexShares Global Quality Real Estate Index Fund (GQRE). The portfolio managers use a proprietary optimization methodology to allocate between those three funds with the goal of minimizing overall return volatility. ASET charges a reasonable premium on top of the fees of its underlying ETFs. This fund is meant as an all-in-one product addressing investors’ need for both inflation-hedging and income.
