QDYN Factset Analytics Insight
QDYN is one of three funds launched by FlexShares in December 2012 that use a proprietary methodology to try to enhance the market's yield by holding high-quality, dividend-paying companies. QDYN is the most aggressive of the three, targeting higher market risk than its sister funds. The index provider calculates a 'quality factor' for each firm, based on a quantitative model that scores firms based on their dividend-paying record and prospects for continued payment. In all, QDYN succceeds only on a relative basis: It takes more risk than its sister funds but less risk than our cap-weighted benchmark. Dividends are strong however as the fund leans toward value stocks. While assets are decent, very poor tracking and weak liquidity add to total costs. Smaller investors should trade QDYN with care.
