OUSM - O'Shares US Sm Cp Qual Div ETF

OUSM invests in the small-cap space of the US equity market. The portfolio selection starts with the S-Network US Equity Mid/Small-Cap 2500 Index and reweights it to increase exposure to four factors: quality (determined by financial statement metrics ROA and EBITDA), low volatility (trailing five-year weekly volatility), dividend yield (12-month trailing), and dividend quality (cash dividend growth and dividend payout). Multiple metrics within each factor are averaged to develop an overall ranking score for each security. The final selection intends to hold 200 companies with the highest overall scores with weights subject to various diversification constraints including a 2% cap on any single constituent at each quarterly rebalance and 22% cap on each sector during annual reconstitution.
