Fund Description
Vanguard U.S. Minimum Volatility ETF seeks to provide long-term capital appreciation. The fund invests primarily in U.S. common stocks that when they are combined in a portfolio minimize volatility relative to the broad market, as determined by the advisor. The portfolio will include a diverse mix of companies representing many different market sectors and industry groups. The advisor uses a quantitative model to evaluate all of the securities in an investment universe comprised of U.S. large, mid, and small capitalization stocks and to construct a U.S. equity portfolio that seeks to achieve exposure to securities with relatively strong recent performance subject to a set of reasonable constraints designed to foster portfolio diversification and liquidity. Securities with relatively strong recent past performance may be identified by measures such as performance over different time periods.
