About this talk
The FTSE Target Exposure Indexes are a suite of benchmarks and investable indexes designed to target specific characteristics—such as factor, climate and ESG exposures—while minimizing all off-target, consequential exposures. Target exposures are completely flexible and can be combined to cater to specific client objectives.
The FTSE Target Exposure Indexes were launched at the end of 2019 with the FTSE All-World Target Exposure Qual Vol Factor Index being adopted by National Grid UK Pension Scheme, a UK-based defined benefit pension fund, with LGIM serving as the investment manager.
During this webinar we will learn about National Grid UK Pension Scheme's investment objectives and how FTSE’s Target Exposure index solution helped to meet those objectives.
