RBUS Fund Description

RBUS tracks an index of approximately 250 U.S. large cap stocks that are selected and weighted according to volatility, cross-correlation, and the Sharpe ratio.

RBUS Factset Analytics Insight

As a fund coming from an issuer in the insurance industry, Nationwide Fund Advisors, it comes as no surprise that RBUS aims to construct a portfolio with an emphasis on low risk securities. RBUS tracks an index that attempts to increase the portfolio’s risk adjusted return relative to traditional vanilla market cap weighted indices. The index begins with the largest 500 U.S. stocks which are then ranked on their trailing one year volatility and cross-correlation. Fifty percent of the most risky securities are eliminated, leaving 250 of the least risky securities in the index. The index attempts to weight each security in a way that equalizes the risk between all constituents — although the actual weight of the securities will not be equal. It does this by optimizing the risk budget and marginal risk contribution of each stock. The index is rebalanced on a monthly basis. For a fund in the U.S. large cap space, RBUS charges a lower than average fee, although investors can find competitive funds in the space for less.

RBUS MSCI ESG Analytics Insight

Nationwide Risk-Based U.S. Equity ETF has an MSCI ESG Fund Rating of BBB based on a score of 5.42 out of 10.
