As the name suggests, the primary objective of a low-volatility approach is to own stocks that historically have a lower volatility profile than the broader market. By classifying stocks in this way, you may generate returns similar to the broad market over time, but with a less bumpy ride. Low volatility ETFs can be used to potentially minimize volatility during periods of heightened volatility in the broader market.
At Fidelity, our low volatility factor funds seek to track the performance of tailor made indices that are actively designed by Fidelity Management and Research Company.
