FlexShares Global Quality Real Estate Index Fund attempts to provide investors with a quality equity portfolio that provides exposure to the inflation-hedging qualities and long-term capital growth potential of global real estate. Many real estate equity strategies have a focus on value, but may omit an evaluation of a holding's financial strength. In addition, some approaches may disregard the direction and size of price movement trends, which can lead to value traps.* The Fund's strategy is designed to try to counter these challenges by maximizing exposure to quality, value and momentum factors. The Fund's Underlying Index attempts to provide global exposure to real estate equities through a portfolio of listed, non-mortgage REITs and operating companies. Income dividends are anticipated to be paid at least quarterly and realized capital gains at least annually.
