QLVE Fund Description

QLVE Factset Analytics Insight

QLVE tracks an index that uses a strategy combining low volatility and a proprietary quality factor to select constituent stocks. The quality factor indicates strength in profitability, management expertise, and cash flow. Holdings are market-cap-weighted, subject to sector, industry groups, and single security weight constraints. QLVE applies this methodology to large- and midcap equities in emerging markets. The fund uses a representative sampling strategy to track its index, which is reconstituted quarterly.
