MSCI Europe Quality 100% Hedged to CAD Index is based on the MSCI Europe Index, its parent index, which includes large and mid cap stocks across the Developed Markets (DM) countries in Europe.
The index aims to capture the performance of quality growth stocks by identifying stocks with high quality scores based on three main fundamental variables: high return on equity (ROE), stable year-over-year earnings growth and low financial leverage.
All securities eligible for inclusion in the index are weighted by the product of their market cap weight in the parent index and their quality score.
Issuer weights are capped at 5%.
The index is rebalanced semi-annually, as of the close of the last business day of November and May.
