FUND INFORMATION:

Symbol: OEUR Exchange: NYSE Arca
Name: O’Shares FTSE Europe Quality Dividend ETF Net Expense Ratio: 0.58%

 

FUND OBJECTIVE:
The O’Shares FTSE Europe Quality Dividend ETF seeks investment performance that correlates generally to price and yield before fees and expenses of the FTSE Developed Europe Qual/Vol/Yield Factor 5% Capped Index.

 

REFERENCE INDEX:
The FTSE Developed Europe Qual/Vol/Yield Factor 5% Capped Index  is designed to measure the performance of publicly-listed large-capitalization and mid-capitalization dividend-paying issuers in Europe that meet certain market capitalization, liquidity, high quality, low volatility and dividend yield thresholds, as determined by FTSE-Russell (Index Provider). The high quality and low volatility requirements are designed to reduce exposure to high dividend equities that have experienced large price declines, as may occur with some dividend investing strategies.
The constituents of the Europe Hedged Target Index are selected from the FTSE Developed Europe Index, comprised of 516 of the largest Developed Europe publicly-listed equities that had an average market capitalization of $22 billion and minimum market capitalization of over approximately $900 million as of June 23, 2015.
The Index Provider selects and weights securities for the Europe Hedged Target Index based on a proprietary approach that combines the following 3 factors:
1) high quality, including measures of profitability, operating efficiency, earnings quality and leverage,
2) low volatility, and
3) high dividend yield for the 12 months preceding each annual reconstitution.
Individual index constituent weights are capped at 5% at each quarterly rebalance to avoid overexposure to any single security and are tested for liquidity semi-annually.
The Europe Hedged Target Index’s investable universe includes real estate investment trusts (REITs).
