Important Information

FT Indexing Solutions LLC ("FTIS") defines various dates to assist our clients in providing transparency:

  • The First Value Date is the first day for which there is a calculated value (either live or back-tested) for a given index.
  • The Base Date is the date at which an index is set to a fixed value for calculation purposes.
  • The launch date of the Index was February 2, 2022 ("Launch Date") which designates the date when the values of an index are first known to have been released to the public.

FTIS has retained Bloomberg Index Services Limited ("BISL" and with its affiliates, "Bloomberg") to act as the administrator and calculation agent of the Index. FTIS does not guarantee the timeliness, accurateness, or completeness of any such calculations.

Please refer to the methodology for the Index (the "Methodology") for more details about the Index, including the manner in which it is rebalanced, the timing of such rebalancing, criteria for additions and deletions of the Underlying Indexes, as well as all Index calculations.

This website does not constitute an offer of any services or financial products. Except for certain custom index calculation services, all information provided by FTIS is general in nature and not tailored to the needs of any person, entity or group of persons. FTIS receives compensation in connection with licensing its indices including the Index, to third parties and providing custom calculation services. It is not possible to invest directly in an index. Exposure to an asset class represented by an index may be available through investable instruments offered by third parties that are based on that index.

FTIS does not sponsor, endorse, sell promote or manage any investment fund or other investment product or vehicle that seeks to provide an investment return based on the performance of the Index. FTIS is not an investment or tax advisor. FTIS makes no representation regarding the advisability of investing in any such investment fund or other investment product or vehicle. A tax advisor should be consulted to evaluate the impact of any tax consequences of making any particular investment decision based on the Index. Credit-related information and other analyses, including ratings, are generally provided by licensors.

Index returns or those of the Underlying Indexes shown do not represent the results of actual trading of investable assets or securities. FTIS or its affiliates maintains the Index but does not manage actual assets. Index returns do not reflect payment of any sales charges or fees an investor may pay to purchase the securities underlying the Index or investment funds, or financial products that are intended to track the performance of the Index. The imposition of these fees and charges would cause actual and back-tested performance of the securities, fund, or financial products to be lower than the Index performance shown. As a simple example, if an index returned 10% on a $100,000 investment for a 12-month period (or $10,000) and an asset-based management fee of 1.50% was imposed at the end of the period on the investment plus accrued interest (or $1,650), the net return would be 8.35%, or $8,350 for the 12-month period. Over a three-year period, an annual 1.50% management fee taken at year end with an assumed 10.00% return per year would result in a cumulative gross return of 33.10%, a total fee of $5,375 and a cumulative net return of 27.20% (or $27,200).
