ETF Overview

iShares Japan Fundamental Index Fund seeks to track the FTSE RAFI Japan CAD-Hedged Index, less fees and expenses.

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.
