IQLT Fund Description

IQLT tracks an index of large- and midcap stocks in developed countries, outside of the US. The index is selected and weighted for exposure to fundamental quality metrics.

IQLT Factset Analytics Insight

IQLT screens its international equity universe based on three measures of fundamental quality: return on equity, debt/equity ratio, and earnings variability. At each semi-annual rebalance, the fund selects 300 securities with the highest combined quality score. Holdings are weighted such that each sector receives the same weight as in the cap-weighted universe (hence the “sector neutral” in the fund’s name). Within each sector, holdings are weighted by their quality score, scaled by market cap.Though IQLT’s portfolio compares closely to our segment benchmark on a sector basis, geographic tilts abound—in particular, Japan is severely underweighted. IQLT charges a reasonable fee for factor exposure, though plain-vanilla competitors are available at a fraction of the price. Note that sibling QUAL applies the same methodology to US equity.
