Index Description

The Syntax Real Asset Index is a stratified-weight equity index of US-listed companies that have Real Asset exposure, including companies that own real estate, timberland, commodity reserves, and infrastructure. The index is designed to offer an effective hedge against inflation, especially inflation linked to movements in the US dollar as well as commodity supply shocks. Constituents are weighted based on Syntax’s patented methodology to control exposure to related business risks (RBRs).
