QDYN Factset Analytics Insight

QDYN is one of three funds launched by FlexShares in December 2012 that uses a proprietary methodology to try to enhance the market's yield by holding high-quality, dividend-paying companies. QDYN is the most aggressive of the three, targeting higher market risk than its sibling funds. The index provider calculates a 'quality factor' for each firm, based on a quantitative model that scores firms on their dividend-paying record and prospects for continued payment. QDYN takes more risk than its sibling funds. Dividends are strong, however, as the fund leans toward value stocks. The index is reconstituted and rebalanced quarterly.
