Fund Description
Franklin International Low Volatility High Dividend Index ETF seeks to track the investment results of an index composed of equity securities of developed markets outside the United States with relatively high yield and low price and earnings volatility while mitigating exposure to fluctuations between the values of the U.S. dollar and other international currencies. Finding income from equities is worth considering, given low interest rates and the risk of bond prices falling if rates rise. But some dividend stocks bring the risk of volatility and payout cuts. The Franklin International Low Volatility High Dividend Index ETF (sub-advised by QS Investors) seeks income from sustainable dividends to provide a more reliable income stream, reduced volatility, and the potential for appreciation.
