QLC Fund Description

QLC tracks an index of the highest quality large-caps, as defined by Northern Trust's proprietary scoring model.

QLC Factset Analytics Insight

QLC focuses on stocks that have certain quality, value, and momentum characteristics. Northern Trust’s index defines quality firms as those exhibiting financial strength and stability relative to the broader universe of eligible securities, but doesn’t describe its proprietary quality scoring model any more than that. The fund’s selection universe consists of the largest 600 stocks in the Northern Trust 1250 Index. Selected constituents are weighted by a mix of value, momentum and other proprietary “quality” measurements. Additionally, QLC applies sector, style and security level constraints in order to manage its risk profile. For this exposure, QLC charges a fee in line with its segment competitors.

These companies may be more resilient to disruptions arising from ESG events.
