IWS Factset Analytics Insight

IWS is well-known in the mid-cap value space, holding approximately 550+ stocks in its basket. The fund pulls from a subset of the Russell 1000, avoiding the largest 200 stocks. The underlying index focuses on US stocks that are believed to be undervalued relative to all securities in the Russell mid-cap Index. Securities with lower price-to-book ratios and lower forecasted growth values are selected for index inclusion. The index is reconstituted annually to ensure larger stocks do not distort the performance of the mid-cap value market.
