USMV Fund Description

The iShares Edge MSCI Min Vol USA ETF tracks an index of US-listed firms selected and weighted to create a low-volatility portfolio subject to various constraints.

USMV FactSet Analytics Insight

USMV offers a minimum-volatility portfolio of US stocks at low total cost. The fund's index uses an optimization algorithm to build a "minimum variance" portfolio—one that considers correlation between stocks—rather than simply holding a basket of low-vol stocks like archrival SPLV. While USMV applies sector constraints in its optimizer, sector bets can be substantial, if unsurprising: The fund typically overweights defensive, dividend-paying sectors relative to our cap-weighted benchmark. USMV’s optimizer also aims to keep other risk factors marketlike as it dials back on volatility. The ETF takes substantially less risk than the market portfolio as shown by low beta. USMV charges a low fee, tracks its index well, and trades briskly.
