FTSE RAFI Index Series

FTSE partners with Research Affiliates on the innovative FTSE RAFI Index Series. Index constituents are weighted using a composite of fundamental factors, including total cash dividends, free cash flow, total sales and book equity value. Prices and market values are not determinants of the index weights.

Consequently the indices are less prone to excessive concentration arising from market fads, which can result in over-exposure to individual companies, sectors or countries.

  • FTSE RAFI All World 3000 Index
  • FTSE RAFI Developed 1000 Index
