INTF Factset Analytics Insight
INTF tracks an index of non-US large- and midcap stocks by emphasizing four factors — quality, value, momentum, and small size — while maintaining the risk profile of the broader universe. This method seeks undervalued and over-performing smaller companies from the MSCI World ex USA Index (Parent Index) using a composite score derived from the Barra multi-factor equity model. The value score is calculated from valuation ratios that focus on forward and trailing earnings, cash earnings, book value, and EV/EBIT, quality score is focused on metrics for profitability, investment quality, leverage and earnings volatility, momentum score measures sustained relative performance against the global market over a two-year period for the previous 12 months, finally, low size score compares its market cap from companies based in the same country. The underlying index is rebalanced on a semi-annual basis.
