Index Overview

Index Construction
Optimized
Index Methodology
The construction of the Index begins with a securities screen to determine eligible securities (as described in the "Index Eligibility" section). Once all eligible securities have been identified, the securities are then optimized based on their exposure to quantitative factors such as:

  • Value-Score, Credit-Score, and Liquidity Score, as determined by NTI's Quantitative Research team’s proprietary scoring models

The primary objective of the optimization is to maximize exposure to the value-score factor relative to the eligible universe.

For more details on this methodology, please see the Index Documents tab.
