FlexShares International Quality Dividend Defensive Index Fund

IQDE pursues a strategy that, in line with its stated investment objective, provides exposure to international securities while providing dividend payments. It is intended as a core international stock market option that also helps investors try to meet their income needs. The strategy applies a proprietary scoring model approach that determines a "quality factor" and an optimization process that seeks to maximize this factor, target a beta lower than the Parent Index (Northern Trust International Large Cap IndexSM) and improve on the Parent Index's dividend yield. If occurring, dividends from net investment income, including any net foreign currency gains, are generally declared and paid quarterly. Distributions of net realized securities gains, if any, are generally declared and paid once a year, but the Fund may make such distributions on a more frequent basis.

*SEC Subsidized Yield
The 30-Day SEC Subsidized Yield is computed under an SEC standardized formula based on net income earned over the past 30 days. It is a "subsidized" yield, which means it includes contractual expense reimbursements and it would be lower without those reimbursements. It may also include an inflation adjustment that can cause the yield to vary substantially from one month to the next.
**SEC Unsubsidized Yield
The 30-Day SEC Unsubsidized Yield calculation is also computed under the same SEC standardized formula based on net income earned over the past 30 days, but excludes contractual expense reimbursements, resulting in a lower yield. It may also include an inflation adjustment that can cause the yield to vary substantially from one month to the next.
***Distribution Yield
This yield is calculated by taking the most recent distribution annualized and dividing by the fund NAV from the as of date. For Funds that distribute quarterly, an NA will be displayed if the fund has not distributed within the last 95 days.
****Dividend Yield
For an equity security, dividend yield is calculated using the (expected) annual dividend divided by the most recent closing price. To calculate annual dividend, we utilize the most recent dividend payment and multiply that payment by the expected frequency over a year. For example, if the most recent dividend for a company is $2.50 and dividends are expected to be paid quarterly (4 dividend payments/year), the annual expected dividend would be calculated as $2.50 x 4 dividend payments/year, or $10.
*****Weighted Average Dividend Yield
For a portfolio of equities, this is the sum of the dividend yield of the underlying securities weighed by its market value with respect to the total market value of the portfolio.

Definitions

  • Net Asset Value (NAV)
    NAV is a fund’s price per share, which is calculated by dividing the total value of all the securities in the fund’s portfolio plus cash, interest and receivables less any liabilities by the number of fund shares outstanding.
  • Market Price
    Because ETFs trade like stocks, ETF shares trade at market value on the secondary market, which can be a dollar value above (trading at a premium) or below (trading at a discount) the fund’s NAV.

The Northern Trust International Quality Dividend Defensive Index is designed to provide exposure to a high-quality income-oriented portfolio of long-only international securities issued by non-U.S.-based companies, with an emphasis on long-term capital growth and a targeted overall beta that is generally between 0.5 to 1.0 times that of the Northern Trust International Large Cap IndexSM (Parent Index). Companies that are included in the index are selected based on expected dividend payment and fundamental factors such as profitability, solid management and reliable cash flow.
