GQRE Fund Description

GQRE tracks a global index of non-mortgage REITs and operating companies, selected and weighted by quality, momentum and value.

GQRE Factset Analytics Insight

GQRE provides exposure to global real estate companies that have been screened for quality, momentum, and value. The fund holds both non-mortgage REITs and real estate operating companies (REOCs - which avoid the reinvestment restrictions of REITs, but must pay corporate taxes). The fund excludes companies engaged in investment and ownership of property mortgages, and other real estate services. The index constituents are weighted by a mix of value, momentum and quality scores. Quality metrics consist of management expertise (e.g. corporate finance activities), profitability, and cash flow. Additionally, GQRE applies sector, style and security level constraints in order to manage its risk profile. The Index is reconstituted quarterly starting February.

GQRE MSCI ESG Analytics Insight

ESG Fund Ratings range from best (AAA) to worst (CCC). Highly rated funds consist of companies that tend to show strong and/or improving management of financially relevant environmental, social and governance issues. These companies may be more resilient to disruptions arising from ESG events.
