IQDF pursues a strategy that, in line with its stated investment objective, provides exposure to international securities while providing dividend payments. It is intended as a core international stock market option that also helps investors try to meet their income needs. The strategy applies a proprietary scoring model approach that determines a "quality factor" and an optimization process that seeks to maximize this factor, match the beta of the Parent Index (Northern Trust International Large Cap IndexSM) and improve on the Parent Index's dividend yield. Dividend payments of income are anticipated quarterly with realized capital gains dividends anticipated at least annually.
