FNDC Fund Description

FNDC tracks a fundamentally-selected and -weighted Russell index of small firms in developed ex-US markets based on adjusted sales, retained operational cash flow, and dividends/buybacks.

FNDC Factset Analytics Insight

FNDC uses various fundamental screens to capture the developed ex-US small-cap space. Starting from the Russell Developed ex-U.S. Index, FNDC selects the bottom 12.5% and weights them by 5-year averages of cash flow, adjusted sales, and dividends plus buybacks. The resulting portfolio looks broadly market-like with a slight midcap tilt. The index is rebalanced on a quarterly basis. Note: FNDC's underlying index changed its name from Russell Fundamental Developed ex-U.S. Small Company Index to Russell RAFI Developed ex-U.S. Small Company Index on December 1, 2016. There are no changes in index methodology and the resulting exposure.
