FTC Fund Description

FTC tracks the Defined Large Cap Growth Index. The alpha-seeking index selects and weights growth stocks from the S&P 500 Growth Index using a proprietary methodology.

FTC Factset Analytics Insight

FTC searches for alpha in the large-cap growth space, implementing its proprietary AlphaDEX selection methodology to the S&P 500 Growth Index. The index uses price appreciation—among more traditional factors—and weights the constituents based on their respective growth scores. The resulting list is then reconfigured with a tiered, equal-weighting scheme that tilts small. Sector biases can be significant with this methodology, which may not deliver the sought-after alpha. This hasn't stopped FTC from generating a lot of interest: the fund trades in significant volumes each day, with small spreads, and block liquidity is excellent. Compared to other alpha-seeking ETFs, FTC charges a fairly reasonable fee, though it's still steep by the standards of the broader large-cap space.
