Benchmark Info

MSCI All Country World High Quality Index (“Index”) is based on the MSCI All Country World Index, its parent index, which includes large and mid cap stocks from global markets including developed and emerging markets. The Index aims to capture the performance of quality growth stocks by identifying stocks with high quality scores based on three main fundamental variables: high return on equity (ROE), stable year-over-year earnings growth and low financial leverage. All securities eligible for inclusion in the Index are weighted by the product of their market cap weight in the parent index and their quality score. Issuer weights are capped at 5%. The Index is rebalanced semi-annually, as of the close of the last business day of November and May.
