Index/Benchmark Summary

The index includes companies that are currently members of the MSCI EAFE, and have increased dividend payments each year for at least 10 years. The index contains a minimum of 40 stocks, which are equally weighted. Generally, no single sector is allowed to comprise more than 30% of an index's weight, and no single country is allowed to comprise more than 50% of the index weight. If there are fewer than 40 stocks with at least 10 consecutive years of dividend growth, or if sector or country caps are breached, the index will include companies with shorter dividend growth histories. The index is rebalanced each February, May, August and November, with an annual reconstitution during the November rebalance.
