Business Risk Diversification
Syntax’s Stratified Weight™ approach is designed to correct for business risk concentrations that regularly occur in cap-weighted indices. These concentrations leave investors exposed to market shocks. Instead of concentrating in the largest companies, we spread index weight across business risk groups to provide a diversified return of all the business opportunities of a benchmark.
