Post subject:  Question about FRTIB notes

I thought this was interesting from the notes from the FRTIB in Jan, 2019:

"For 2018, the F Fund was ahead of the Fixed Income Index by 18
basis points, primarily as a result of securities lending. Performance for the C Fund for
the year was in line the Large Cap Index. The S Fund was ahead of the Small-Mid Cap
Index by 34 basis points, primarily due to securities lending and securities sampling.
Finally, BlackRock's yearly performance for the I Fund was ahead of the International
Index by 42 basis points, primarily due to tax effect"

I'm curious to what "securities lending and securities sampling" are defined as in regards to the S-Fund. Anyone have a clue?

Oh and it looks like they are involved in "securities lending" in the F Fund. :roll: :roll:
