FlexShares STOXX Global Broad Infrastructure Index Fund

FlexShares STOXX Global Broad Infrastructure Index Fund is a global equity portfolio consisting of companies that have infrastructure ownership. Infrastructure companies offer investors a defensive exposure with a low historical correlation to other global equities, and potential income generation benefits. A bottom-up approach is employed to identify companies with infrastructure ownership across multiple geographies and infrastructure supersectors. Traditional utility, energy and transportation supersectors are included, plus two additional supersectors - communications (including cell towers and data centers) and government outsourcing/social infrastructures - which help to further diversify the portfolio. The Fund seeks investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield performance, before fees and expenses, of the STOXX Global Broad Infrastructure Index (Underlying Index). 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.

View Standardized Performance
*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 annually, an NA will be displayed if the fund has not distributed within the last 370 days.

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 STOXX Global Broad Infrastructure Index measures the performance of companies that generate a least half of their revenues from one of the following 17 sectors defined as infrastructure-specific by a propriety classification system used by STOXX: Communication (Cable & Satellite, Data Centers, Wireless, Wireless Towers, Wireline), Energy (Energy Utilities, Midstream Energy), Government Outsourcing / Social (Correctional Facilities, Hospitals, Postal Services), Transportation (Air Transportation, Passenger Transportation, Rail Transportation, Road Transportation, Water Transportation) and Utilities (Waste Management and Water Utilities).

The universe of securities for STOXX Global Broad Infrastructure Index encompasses all constituents of the STOXX Global Total Market Index listed in developed or emerging markets. The companies within the index universe for the STOXX Global Broad Infrastructure Index which derive at least 50% of their revenues from one of the 17 sectors above are screened to meet a minimum liquidity measurement and sorted by their free-float market capitalization. The index methodology limits the number of index constituents from each supersector (Communication, Energy, Government Outsourcing / Social, Transportation, Utilities). Further, a maximum number of constituents per sector within each supersector is defined.
