Index Description

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