  • Overview

Investment Objective

A Fund seeking to match the performance of the Morgan Stanley Capital International EAFE Index ("EAFE Index") as closely as possible before the deduction of Fund expenses.

Key Points

  • The Fund uses a proprietary quantitative investment approach, Stratified Sampling with Optimization, that attempts to replicate, before expenses, the characteristics and performance of the EAFE Index.

  • Stratified sampling statistically identifies a sample of more liquid equity securities included in the EAFE Index. Selected securities are optimized to construct a portfolio that mimics as closely as possible the market capitalization, industry weightings and other key fundamental characteristics of the EAFE Index.

  • Stratified Sampling with Optimization allows construction of a portfolio using the most liquid names in the EAFE Index in order to minimize transaction costs, while still achieving fundamental portfolio-level characteristics very close to those of the EAFE Index.

Total Fund Assets

$583.7 Million
