Product Details

The PowerShares S&P SmallCap Low Volatility Portfolio (Fund) is based on the S&P SmallCap 600 Low Volatility Index (Index). The Fund generally will invest at least 90% of its total assets in common stocks that comprise the Index. The Index is compiled, maintained and calculated by Standard & Poor's, consisting of 120 out of 600 small-capitalization range securities from the S&P SmallCap 600® Index with the lowest realized volatility over the past 12 months. Volatility is a statistical measurement of the magnitude of up and down asset price fluctuations over time. The Fund and the Index are rebalanced and reconstituted quarterly.

Factor DNATM

Financial Professionals - Log in to view the fund’s Factor DNATM chart

Methodology

Factor scores are calculated for every stock within the starting universe, Russell 3000 Index and Russell Global ex-US Index. Factor scores are normalized using z-scores with a mean of zero and a standard deviation of one. A normalized score is then calculated for both the fund and index shown based on the weighted average normalized scores of their underlying stocks. The Factor DNATM chart plots the difference in the fund's normalized score for each factor, in standard deviations, relative to the index shown with a range of -1.5 to 1.5. The index shown serves as the baseline and is plotted at zero.

Factor definitions

Low volatility – Annualized 252-day standard deviation of the stock’s price. Lower standard deviations receive a higher factor exposure score. Dividend yield – Total dividends paid by the stock over the past 12 months divided by its current price. Quality – Each fundamental ratio is standardized using a z-score relative to its universe before averaging (return on equity - accruals ratio - debt to common equity) / three. Value – Each fundamental ratio is standardized using a z-score relative to its universe before averaging (earnings/price + book value/price + sales/price) / three. Momentum – 12-month return excluding the most recent month. The return is risk adjusted using the standard deviation of daily price returns over the past year. Small size – Stock's market capitalization in USD. Lower market capitalization companies receive a higher factor exposure score.

 Risk & Other Information

Typically, security classifications used in calculating allocation tables are as of the last trading day of the previous month.

There are risks involved with investing in ETFs, including possible loss of money. Shares are not actively managed and are subject to risks similar to those of stocks, including those regarding short selling and margin maintenance requirements. Ordinary brokerage commissions apply. The Fund's return may not match the return of the Underlying Index. The Fund is subject to certain other risks. Please see the current prospectus for more information regarding the risk associated with an investment in the Fund.

Investments focused in a particular sector, such as financial services, are subject to greater risk, and are more greatly impacted by market volatility, than more diversified investments.

Stocks of small-capitalization companies tend to be more vulnerable to adverse developments, may be more volatile, and may be illiquid or restricted as to resale than large companies.

There is no assurance that the Fund will provide low volatility.
