RNDM Fund Description

RNDM tracks an index of developed international ex-US equities, selected for low volatility and weighted according to a tiered methodology: first market-cap followed by modified equal weights.

RNDM Factset Analytics Insight

RNDM follows an index of developed market equity, excluding the United States. The index uses a multi-step process to determine the final portfolio composition. First, securities are selected from a parent index to the underlying index (the NASDAQ Developed Markets Ex-US Large Mid Cap Index) and then grouped according to their country designation. Next, within each country, the securities are ranked on volatility – using the trailing 12 month volatility as the standing metric. 25 securities with the lowest volatility from each country are chosen, with country and sector weights applied that mimic the parent index’s construction. Within each sector, the individual securities are equally weighted. By applying these screening measures, RNDM attempts to reduce the overall risk of the portfolio by exposing the investor to low-volatility global equity. Because RNDM pulls from a universe of large- and midcap stocks, exposure to the small-cap space will be minimal, at best.Considering the competition in the low-volatility space, RNDM comes in with a hefty price tag.
