SPLV Fund Description

The PowerShares S&P 500 Low Volatility Portfolio tracks a volatility-weighted index of the 100 least-volatile stocks in the S&P 500.

SPLV Factset Analytics Insight

SPLV offers a straightforward low-volatility take on the S&P 500. It selects about 100 S&P 500 stocks with the lowest daily volatility over the past year. SPLV does not consider correlation among stocks, so it produces a basket of low-vol stocks, not a minimum volatility portfolio, in contrast with iShares' USMV. The largely unconstrained fund makes sizable sector bets at times, which can change dramatically over successive quarterly rebalances. Volatility-based selection and weighting typically drive SPLV's market cap and beta lower than our neutral benchmark. While it doesn't look much like the broad US large-cap market, SPLV fulfills its low-volatility mandate.

SPLV earns a spot on our Opportunities list for the alternative exposure described above, combined with reasonable holding costs, strong liquidity and hefty AUM.
