QLV Factset Analytics Insight
QLV is a fund combining the characteristics of low volatility and what it calls “quality” in the selection of its constituent stocks. The quality factor is described as a combination of: (i) management expertise (e.g. corporate finance activities), (ii) profitability (e.g. reliability and sustainability of financial performance), and (iii) cash flow (e.g., cash flow generation). An optimization process is also utilized in order to reduce overall portfolio volatility and maximize the overall quality factor relative to the parent index. QLV uses a representative sampling strategy to track its index, which is reconstituted quarterly.
