SPLV makes sizable sector bets at times, which can change dramatically over successive quarterly rebalances.
What ETFdb says about it: The fund is probably one of the safest in the equity world as the companies on this list are very unlikely to go under unless there is an apocalyptic event in the economy.
Why is that Kristal there: A complete pool of 2100+ ETFs are screened on various qualitative and quantitative parameters to evaluate efficiency, tradability and fit. The metrics used were alpha, beta and R-Squared with respect to the segment benchmark and ETF specific metrics such as expense ratio, drawdown, volatility and the overall rating. We evaluate all ETFs and assign a composite score based on our analysis and then select the top ones in a category based on that comprehensive score by the inhouse research / quant analysts team. SPLV has a strong liquidity, thanks to its large AUM with high volume and low costs. The strategy is rebalanced on a quarterly basis with the rebalancing mechanism being determined by an algorithm that takes into account the overall performance of the strategy so far.
