Index series A-Z
FTSE partners with Research Affiliates on the innovative FTSE RAFI Index Series. These non-market cap weighted indices break the link between price and weight. Index constituents are selected and weighted using four fundamental factors - total cash dividends, free cash flow, total sales, book value.
Introducing the FTSE RAFI QSR Index Series
FTSE is pleased to announce the launch of the FTSE RAFI QSR Index Series on 18 March 2013. This new index series represents a complementary offering to the existing FTSE RAFI Index Series. It incorporates quarterly staggered rebalancing (QSR), which spreads rebalancing over the course of the subsequent 12 months, reducing the market impact of reconstitution and increasing capacity.
Additional details regarding the methodology and characteristics can be found in the recently published white paper FTSE RAFI Index Series: Staggered Rebalancing.
All existing FTSE RAFI Indices will continue to be calculated as normal.
