Benefits & Strategy

Key Benefits

QQQE provides equal-weight exposure to all NASDAQ-100® index holdings, allowing you an opportunity to manage risk in your portfolio through:

  • Broader diversification beyond technology sector stocks which may help reduce concentration risk
  • Greater performance contribution from companies with smaller market capitalization1
  • Quarterly rebalancing for consistent equal-weighting, after regular market fluctuations

1Market Capitalization is the total dollar market value of all of a company’s outstanding shares, and is calculated by multiplying a company’s shares outstanding by the current market price of one share.

The Strategy at Work

Performance contribution in market weighted indexes such as the S&P 500 Index or NASDAQ-100 Index is typically driven by a small number of very large companies with market caps that are considerably higher than the average. Most of the other stocks in the index are typically below the average weight of the index.

By contrast the NASDAQ-100 Equal Weighted Index allots the same weight, or importance, to each stock in the index. The result is a potentially more diversified performance contribution from the individual companies, and sectors that are in the index.

Target Index

The NASDAQ 100®Equal Weighted Index (NETR) includes 100 of the largest non-financial securities listed on NASDAQ®, but instead of being weighted by market capitalization, each of the constituents is initially set at 1.00%. The index is reviewed and adjusted annually in December, but replacements may be made any time throughout the year. The index is rebalanced quarterly in March, June, September and December. One cannot directly invest in an index.
