ETF of the Week: iShares Edge MSCI Minimum Volatility USA ETF (USMV)

ETF Trends CEO Tom Lydon discussed the iShares Edge MSCI Minimum Volatility USA ETF (USMV) on this week’s “ETF of the Week” podcast with Chuck Jaffe on the MoneyLife Show.

USMV seeks the investment results of the MSCI USA Minimum Volatility (USD) Index. The fund will invest at least 90% of its assets in the component securities of the index and may invest up to 10% of its assets in certain futures, options and swap contracts, cash and cash equivalents. The index measures the performance of large and mid-capitalization equity securities listed on stock exchanges in the U.S. that, in the aggregate, have lower volatility relative to the broader U.S. equity market.
