U.S. Fundamental Stability & Value (US FSV)

  • U.S. FSV begins with the largest 500 U.S. stocks, eliminates those with the worst through-cycle fundamental stability and highest debt levels, and then invests in the most attractively valued remaining 100 companies based on Distillate Capital’s normalized free cash flow methodology. The portfolio is weighted by free cash flow generation and is rebalanced quarterly.1
  • U.S. FSV is designed chiefly to preserve capital in down markets, but also seeks to keep pace in rising ones.
