IFED-L maximizes exposure to those large cap U.S. equities best positioned to benefit from prevailing monetary conditions. The index uses a combination of Federal Reserve policy developments and key firm metrics to select stocks via a transparent and rules-based active strategy.
IFED-L is tilted towards securities with favorable liquidity characteristics. In addition, the index places constraints on sector and individual stock weights.
NYSE-Listed UBS Exchange Traded Notes (ETNs)
On September 14, 2021, UBS Investment Bank launched two exchange traded notes (ETNs) on the New York Stock Exchange. Each ETN is linked to the IFED Large-Cap US Equity Index (IFED-L). IFED-L adjusts its holdings to correspond with changes in market conditions as signaled by shifts in Federal Reserve policy.
Access to these ETNs is widely available through registered investment advisors (RIAs), broker-dealers and online trading platforms.
Interested parties can track IFED ETN prices and trading activity through Google Finance, Yahoo Finance and similar sites using the tickers IFED and FEDL.
