NUMV Factset Analytics Insight
NUMV aims to invest in the most socially responsible companies while still providing reasonably marketlike exposure to value stocks. The fund takes its holdings from the MSCI USA Mid-Cap Value Index, which selects value stocks according to price/book, forward price/earnings, and dividend yield. From there, NUMV screens out companies involved in controversial businesses, such as alcohol, weapons, nuclear power, and gambling. Companies that exceed carbon emissions thresholds are also excluded. The remaining firms are scored on environmental, social, and governance factors, and the highest scoring firms within each sector (the top 50% by market cap) are selected for inclusion in the fund. NUMV’s portfolio is weighted according to an optimization algorithm which tries to minimize any risk and return distortions created by the fund’s ESG screen. NUMV looks pricey next to ultra-cheap vanilla funds, but its fee is reasonable for its specialized exposure.
