VGFO Factset Analytics Insight

This fund will be changing investment strategy on or around July 20, 2020. The fund will look to focus on international, developed market, dividend equities. VGFO applies factor analysis on a regional basis to identify securities with exposure to what it considers to be attractive and complementary investment factors (such as mean reversion, trend following, risk aversion, or risk seeking). The fund aims for neutral exposure to four geographic regions—exactly what this means is not explained—with factor exposure tailored to each region. VGFO also applies active risk management at both the regional and portfolio levels, aiming to mitigate drawdowns. The portfolio is largely unconstrained, and may include stocks of any size from any geography. The fund will hold securities from at least five countries, with at least 30% of assets outside of the US.VGFO is positioned as a core equity holding, and it aims to outperform the MSCI ACWI over the long term. The methodology may be somewhat opaque, but VGFO charges a below-average fee for active management. Still, plain-vanilla global equity exposure can be had for a fraction of the price.
