MSCI Risk Weighted Indices have historically produced lower volatility and outperformed their parent indices.¹
Invest in stocks that have historically demonstrated significant downside protection.
Stocks with lower historical return variance are given higher weighting in the MSCI Index.
While markets have generally enjoyed a strong bull run since the Financial Crisis, 2008 really emphasized the need for more risk management within investment portfolios. First Asset offers a number of factor based ETFs designed to lower volatility while still delivering better returns than broad markets by aiming to replicate MSCI′s suite of Risk Weighted Indices.
