IDLV Factset Analytics Insight
IDLV aims to provide low-volatility exposure to the developed ex-US market, so its portfolio is not expected to look like our benchmark. The fund's basket is rather counter-intuitive for a low-volatility play, showing a significant bias away from large firms and favoring typically-volatile financials instead. Beyond financials, the fund shows a bias toward typically "defensive" sectors like utilities. However, this doesn't always translate to lower volatility, and at times IDLV winds up being a riskier play than neutral exposure. Liquidity is decent for IDLV, which generally trades in strong volumes with moderate spreads. For larger investors looking to deal in size, underlying liquidity should be sufficient. IDLV has attracted ample assets due to its low fees and the increasingly popular low volatility strategy. However, the fund struggles in tracking, and often lags its index by more than its fee. Investors should consider both the fund's true holding costs and its actual risk profile before diving in.
