ACWV Factset Analytics Insight
ACWV's uses global stock co-movements to identify the least volatile portfolio but sets limits to keep the basket from straying too far from the market. Consistent with its low-volatility mandate, ACWV tilts toward stable sectors like utilities, telecom and consumer non-cyclicals, while underweighting technology. The fund overweights Japan and the rest of developed Asia, while limiting exposure to tumultuous European equities. A highly tradable fund, with high daily volume and solid underlying liquidity, caution is still advised due to occasionally wide spreads and a large creation basket size that can move the market. It's also a cheap fund to hold, with a low expense ratio and decent tracking and robust securities lending income. Overall, with reasonable holding costs, good Tradability, and a novel take on the sector, ACWV is on our Opportunities List.
