CWS Fund Description

The AdvisorShares Focused Equity ETF is an actively-managed ETF that aims to achieve long-term capital appreciation and outperform the S&P 500 Index by holding a focused group of US-listed stocks using proprietary models.

CWS Factset Analytics Insight

CWS is an actively-managed fund that holds a small basket of fundamentally sound US companies in order to outperform the S&P 500 Index. Fund manager uses a variety of proprietary models to evaluate companies’ intrinsic value and growth potential. Unlike most active equity funds on the market, CWS takes a longer-term view on its holdings and aims to minimize portfolio turnover. Holding all else equal, low portfolio turnover should help CWS with its performance by reducing fund operating cost. CWS charges a relatively high fee for its small and slow-evolving portfolio. With its variable fee structure, CWS’ fee has the potential to go higher or lower depending on its performance with respect to its benchmark. After one year of initial operation, CWS will adjust its fee monthly. The bottom line: Investors of CWS are counting on and paying for the manager’s ability to pick winners.
