VFMV Factset Analytics Insight

While VFMV is an active fund, the portfolio manager follows a rules-based, quantitative approach to offer low-volatility exposure to US equities of all sizes. Unlike some competitors that merely screen for low-volatility stocks, the fund uses a proprietary model that considers common sources of risk. The aims is to minimize the total volatility of the fund, while maintaining diverse exposure to the US equity landscape. VFMV charges a competitive expense ratio, on par with many index funds and undercutting actively managed peers significantly. VFMV offers investors the option of an active fund for passive prices.
