QDF Fund Description

The FlexShares Quality Dividend fund tracks an index of companies deemed to have secure dividends that matches the beta of the Northern Trust 1250.

QDF FactSet Analytics Insight

QDF, in contrast to its two sister funds QDEFdelivers yield, but its risk stance is more defensive than neutral and QDYN, strives for neutral market risk and a high relative yield. The companies it targets are not simply the highest dividend payers, however, but companies with durable dividends that are unlikely to be cut in the future. To select its constituents, the index provider created a proprietary scoring model that determines a "quality factor" for each firm. The result of this process is not a radically different portfolio from the market, with the exception of a slight bias toward defensive sectors and toward smaller firms. QDF delivers on its yield promise, but its risk stance is more defensive than neutral, as measured by beta to the market. The fund isn't cheap to hold for a US equity ETF, but has attracted a very hefty asset base since it 2012 launch.
