iSTOXX Developed World Min Vol

Index Description

The iSTOXX Developed World Min Vol index (iSTOXX Developed World MV) is designed to track the performance of an optimised minimum variance portfolio that will incorporate tilts towards companies that exhibit low volatility and favourable fundamentals (specifically profitability and leverage). The index is constructed by creating a minimum variance portfolio based on the STOXX Developed World index and requiring that the ISS climate score of the portfolio is no worse than the parent index. The index rules ensure tradability, diversification, positive exposure to fundamental quality (i.e., positive exposure to profitability and low leverage), and untargeted factor and industry/country/region exposures are risk managed.

Key facts

  • Innovative index that tilts towards companies that exhibit low volatility and favourable fundamentals of profitability and leverage
  • Explicitly designed to minimize portfolio volatility while incorporating quality consideration
  • Embedded diversification elements across non-target factors, industry and country exposures
