Index Description

The Syntax Stratified Core Index is the stratified-weight version of the S&P 900® Index, which combines the S&P 500 Index and S&P MidCap 400 Index. The index holds the same constituents as the S&P 900, but the weight of each company in the Syntax Stratified Core Index is based on Syntax’s patented methodology to control exposure to related business risks (RBRs).
