IQDE Fund Description

The FlexShares International Quality Dividend Defensive Index Fund tracks an index of non-US companies from developed and emerging markets selected by dividend payments and other fundamentals. The index aims for lower market risk.

IQDE Factset Analytics Insight

IQDE delivers a safe and sound portfolio, but the relatively new fund has yet to hit its stride with respect to investor interest. The fund combines 3 investment aims: lower market risk (the 'safe' part) as well as high quality and a strong dividend stream (the 'sound' part). IQDE indeed has low market risk (beta of 0.92) and the portfolio is on track with the quality and dividend plays. Still, the fund faces some challenges. The 47 bp fee, while not outrageous, is still greater than fees of plain-vanilla peers. In addiotion, asset levels of $55M means it has had some success in attracting interest but need to do more to warrant full confidence in its viability. IQDE comes in 2 other flavors parked further out on the risk/return curve: IQDF and IQDY.
