IFED Methodology

Starting Universe and Stock Scoring
  • Stocks listed on NYSE or Nasdaq with 3+ years of data

  • EIA’s proprietary monetary indicator classifies conditions as expansive, restrictive or indeterminate

  • 12 firm-specific metrics determine IFED scores (i.e., ability to benefit from prevailing market conditions)*

Composition & Weighting
Index Rebalance Timing
  • Each stock is ranked by its IFED score

  • 75 stocks with highest scores for prevailing conditions are selected

  • Selected stocks are weighted by IFED score

  • Customized IFED indexes integrate unique features 

  • IFED indexes rebalance based on signaled shifts in Federal Reserve policy, rather than relying on rate levels or current economic conditions.
