Index Methodology

Definitions

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.
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.
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 monthly, an NA will be displayed if the fund has not distributed within the last 35 days.
12-Month Dividend Yield
This yield is the sum of all income distributions over the past twelve months and dividing by the most recent NAV.
ESG investing is defined as utilizing environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria as a set of standards for a company’s operations that socially conscious investors use to screen potential investments.
Premium/Discount
This is the calculation of a Fund's daily NAV (%) in comparison to the midpoint of the closing bid/ask as of 4PM ET.
Median Bid-Ask Spread
This is the calculation of a Fund's daily median bid-ask spread ($) by identifying the Fund’s National Best Bid and Offer ("NBBO") as of the end of each 10 second interval during the trading day within the last 30 calendar days, dividing the difference between such bid and offer by the midpoint of the NBBO and publishing the median of these values.
