FTSE Global Factor Index Series

Our Global Factor Index Series is designed to target and represent the specific characteristics that formulate the performance of constituents.

The FTSE Global Factor Index Series is a suite of benchmarks designed to represent the performance of specific factor characteristics, with six single factor indices and additional combinations of factors comprising the index series. The six factors represent common factor characteristics for which there is a broad academic and practitioner consensus, supported by a body of empirical evidence across different geographies and time periods. The factors targeted are:

  • Quality
  • Value
  • Momentum
  • Low Volatility
  • Size
  • Yield

The indices are based on the market cap weighted FTSE All-World, Russell US and FTSE UK indices. The FTSE Global Factor Index series uses a transparent methodology to achieve a controlled exposure to a target factor, while considering levels of diversification and capacity.

FTSE Target Exposure Indices

The FTSE Target Exposure Indices are a suite of benchmarks designed to target specific characteristics - such as factor, climate and ESG exposures - while minimising all off-target, consequential exposures. Target exposures are completely flexible and can be combined to cater to specific client objectives. The Target Exposure Index Series employs FTSE Russell’s established Tilt-Tilt methodology. This “bottom up” rules-based framework successively applies tilts to capture targeted exposures and applies corrective tilts to neutralise and/or minimise all off-target exposures.
