QUAL Fund Description

The iShares Edge MSCI USA Quality Factor ETF tracks an index of US large- and mid-cap stocks, selected and weighted by high ROE, stable earnings growth and low debt/equity, relative to peers in each sector.

QUAL Factset Analytics Insight

Seeking to capture higher quality stocks within GICS sectors, QUAL make its selections from the large- and mid-cap MSCI universe by considering "quality" factors: high ROE, low debt/equity, and stable earnings growth. The fund changed its exposure following a September 1, 2015 index change, foregoing some of its earlier sector biases in favor of an underlying index with sector weighting that looks more like our benchmark, while applying quality factors to the stocks within those sectors. The new portfolio is expected to take less active risk (compared with the old index) relative to pure cap-weighted exposure. QUAL has decent on-screen and underlying liquidity. Historically it has tracked its index well—we'll see if the fund delivers its new index with similar efficiency. Its low fee certainly helps. Don't be alarmed by the index change: QUAL has beefy AUM, led by strong institutional interest from Arizona State Retirement System.
