This ETF offers exposure to global equity markets, including both developed and emerging economies. Given this broad focus, ACWV could be an appealing tool within a long-term, buy-and-hold portfolio, or could be used as more of a tactical instrument. The unique attribute of ACWV is the focus on low volatility stocks; this methodology should generally result in a portfolio with limited downside potential compared to the broad markets, while still allowing investors to maintain equity market exposure. ACWV is one of several ETFs that allows investors to achieve cheap and efficient access to a strategy that would otherwise require significant time and expense to construct. For investors looking to scale back the amount of volatility exhibited by their portfolio, an allocation to ACWV can be a quick way to smooth out some of the dips and jumps without conducting extensive stock screens. This ETF is extremely cost efficient considering the type of exposure offered, making it potentially very appealing to investors looking to minimize both expenses and volatility.
