iShares US Fundamental Index Fund - CLU.C

ETF Overview

This is the non-currency hedge version of CLU.

Unlike CLU, this fund does not employ USD/CAD currency hedging.

The iShares US Fundamental Index Fund has been designed to replicate, net of expenses, the performance of the FTSE RAFI US 1000 Index, which comprises the largest 1,000 US listed companies by fundamental value.

The index weights constituents using four accounting factors, rather than market capitalization. These four factors include:

Fundamental Indexation

This ETF tracks a Fundamental Index. The strategy is known as Fundamental Index or Fundamental Indexation.

Fundamental Indexation is designed to overcome the limitations of traditional indices based on market capitalization. Fundamental Indexation weights its constituents based on company fundamental factors including dividends, total sales, free cash flow and book equity value, each variable not depending on the fluctuations of the market valuation.

Fundamental Indexation seeks to identify the true "fair value" of each company.
