VFLQ Factset Analytics Insight
VFLQ — part of Vanguard's suite of actively managed factor funds — focuses on stocks with low liquidity. Although the fund is active, the portfolio manager follows a rules-based process to invest in a portfolio of US companies that demonstrate lower measures of trading liquidity. All market cap sizes and all sectors are considered fair game as long as the security exhibits illiquid qualities as measure by daily trading volume. Of course, securities that hardly ever trade can pose a problem for portfolio management, so the manager has the discretion to avoid certain less liquid stocks to maintain the integrity of the fund. Active management also gives VFLQ greater leeway to seek the best prices when trading.
