Though major indexes like the S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average recently reached new highs, they’re still susceptible to fluctuations from trade war news. As such, it’s necessary to mute the volatility and capture upside with funds like Innovator Capital Management’s Innovator Lunt Low Vol/High Beta Tactical ETF (LVHB).

LVHB received a Morningstar 5-Star rating based on the risk-adjusted returns of 1,114 Funds in the US Large Value category, for the three-year period ended October 31, 2019. LVHB is ranked in the top one percentile out 1,149 Funds in the US Large Value category with a one-year return of 22.17% (NAV), and has a three-year annualized return of 15.52% (NAV) through October 31, 2019.1 LVHB returned 25.29% (NAV) year to date.

“We are pleased to celebrate the Innovator Lunt Low Vol/High Beta Tactical ETF (LVHB) three-year anniversary achieving a Morningstar 5-Star rating,” said Graham Day, CFA and VP of product & research at Innovator Capital Management. “LVHB utilizes a simple rules-based strategy to select either the 100 lowest volatility or 100 highest beta stocks from the S&P 500 Index, based on risk-adjusted momentum. We believe LVHB has proven to be a compelling alternative to higher cost actively-managed strategies.”

“We believe factor rotation offers the opportunity for outperformance as the low volatility and high beta factors move in and out of favor,” said John Lunt, President of Lunt Capital. “The Lunt Capital U.S. Large Cap Equity Rotation Index uses a rules-based factor rotation methodology. This strategy answers one of the major questions asked by investors—Which factor should I invest in right now? We believe the initial three-year performance for LVHB demonstrates the value of incorporating this strategy into U.S. Large Cap allocations.”
