QDF Factset Analytics Insight
QDF targets neutral market risk with a higher dividend yield using a multi-factor model, aiming for high yield from 'quality' dividend payers. It doesn't look for firms that are simply paying the greatest dividends, but attempts to find the firms whose dividends are durable and unlikely to be cut in the future. To select its constituents, the index provider created a proprietary scoring model that determines a quality factor for each firm (based on management efficiency, dividend policy, profitability, and cash flow). The result of this process is not a radically different portfolio from the market.
