The Low Volatility ETF folio was developed for investors seeking lower volatility in return for less than market returns, with a smaller number of securities.
The Low Volatility ETF folio consists of ETFs that are significantly less volatile than the overall market. The folio has the goal of achieving about half the volatility of the market, while still retaining strategic exposure to equities to boost long-term expected return.
The folio can provide an easy hedge during an economic downturn or in periods of significant volatility, with the moderate cost of ETF ownership.
