QWLDSPDR MSCI World StrategicFactors ETF
QWLD Fund Description
QWLD tracks an index of developed-market securities that consists of 3 subindexes based on value, minimum volatility and quality.
QWLD Factset Analytics Insight
QWLD offers multifactor exposure with moderate biases. The fund tracks an index that equally weights three subindexes (value, minimum-volatility, and quality) derived from the MSCI World Index. This resulting mix may offer low-volatility strategy with an equal focus on high-quality and attractively valued firms. QWLD takes moderate active risk—perhaps the three subindexes (each of which runs without consideration of the other) offset each other somewhat. Large US firms dominate the fund’s weighting, in line with our neutral benchmark, though we do see lower beta, a large-cap tilt and some sector biases. QWLD changed its name and the name of its underlying index on July 15, 2016. The change was purely cosmetic with no impact on investment strategy, portfolio holdings, and investor experience.
