MXDUNationwide Maximum Diversification U.S. Core Equity ETF
MXDU Fund Description
MXDU tracks an index of US companies, excluding those with business practices that contradict certain socially responsible investment values. The fund is optimized to maximize a proprietary measure of diversification.
MXDU Factset Analytics Insight
MXDU provides a portfolio of low-correlation US stocks while excluding firms that do not align with the index providers definition of socially responsible investing principles. The funds index screens the eligible universe of large- and midcap companies, removing those involved in the production of controversial weapons, tobacco, or coal, and those engaged in human rights violations, environmental damage, corruption, or other serious ethical violations. Next, the index uses a mathematical model to minimize the covariance between its constituents, resulting in a portfolio of stocks with low or negative correlations to each other. This is the maximum diversification alluded to in the funds name but note that MXDU may not be especially diversified by more traditional measures. The model applies constraints to ensure that the portfolio does not stray too far from market weights, but these are loose enough that significant tilts are still possible. The index is reconstituted quarterly.
