    Seeing The World Through Low Volatility Investments

    The low volatility factor is getting plenty of love these days, and investors looking to ETFs to access that factor should remember it can be applied beyond the confines of U.S. borders. Reduced volatility can also work with a broad basket of global equities as highlighted by the iShares Edge MSCI Min Vol Global ETF (CBOE: ACWV) . ACWB “seeks to track the investment results of an index composed of developed and emerging market equities that, in the aggregate, have lower volatility characteristics relative to the broader developed and emerging equity markets,” according to iShares.
