SYDFNV | Syntax Defensive Index

Index Description

The Syntax Defensive Index equally weights up to 50 publicly traded US companies that provide goods or services for which demand is relatively inelastic. The Index applies screens for thematic purity of exposure, liquidity, and size, and defines business segments including defensive utilities, consumer staples and necessities, defensive healthcare, and other defensive businesses.

The Index uses company classification data structured in Syntax's proprietary Functional Information System (FIS)®, which draws primarily from audited annual reports (e.g., 10-K filings) and secondarily from unaudited documents (e.g., news articles, company websites) to allow granular groupings and comparisons of companies by the characteristics of their various product lines.
