MOAT Fund Description

The VanEck Vectors Morningstar Wide Moat ETF tracks a staggered, equal-weighted index of 40 companies that Morningstar determines to have the highest fair value among firms with a sustainable competitive advantage.

MOAT Factset Analytics Insight

Despite its safe-sounding name, MOAT makes radical departures from market-like coverage. It holds a small portfolio of stocks identified by Morningstar's equity research team as attractively priced with sustainable competitive advantages (patents, high switching costs, etc.). MOAT favors single-name positions and significant sector biases. Investors need faith in the thesis or in the Morningstar brand.
MOAT follows an equal-weighted index with a staggered rebalance: half the portfolio is reconstituted with equal weights every six months, and the other half follows three months later. It also caps turnover and sector exposure. This results in the fund holding more than 40 names at times. MOAT trades well for investors great and small, with strong block liquidity and small spreads on the secondary market. It isn't cheap in the context of its segment, and tracking is looser than we'd like to see, but its holding costs compare well with WMW, which tracks the same index.
