VALX Fund Description

VALX tracks an index that selects US-listed stocks and ADRs using models derived from the investing styles of several famous investors.

VALX Factset Analytics Insight

VALX bets on the methods of "legendary" investors in a bid to beat the market. The underlying universe is screened against 40 individual quantitative models based on the strategies of famous investors like Warren Buffett, Ben Graham, and David Dreman. The methodology is built on over 300 different metrics, measuring such factors as profitability, growth, cash flow, and past performance. Using this historical data, the index evaluates the long-term performance, risks, and correlations of each investor model. It identifies ten investor models and ten securities from each model (100 securities total) that pose the greatest potential for capital appreciation, while reducing volatility. Holdings are equally weighted initially, but are not rebalanced—securities that are removed from the index are replaced by new securities in the same aggregate weight. The index is reconstituted every four weeks. VALX confines itself to US-listed names and favors smaller firms. Still, we place it in the global total-market segment due to its broad latitude for choosing securities. VALX launched in December 2014, the first ETF from issuer Validea. Investors intrigued by the "copycat" approach could also consider GURU or ALFA. Prior to April 1, 2018, the fund was actively managed.
