Product details

Why invest in XSLV?

The Invesco S&P SmallCap Low Volatility ETF is designed for investors seeking exposure to US small-cap stocks with low volatility for both potential upside participation and risk mitigation.

Making up lost ground can be difficult

Our low volatility ETFs can potentially minimize the drawdown you experience. The chart depicts the more loss you experience on an investment, the greater gain is needed to bring the investment back to whole.

The chart depicts the relationship between investment losses and the required gains needed to recover to its original value. As the initial loss increases, the necessary gain to restore the investment to its original value becomes more significant. For instance, a 10% loss necessitates an 11% gain for recovery and a 30% loss requires a 43% gain to recover. 

Data presented is provided for illustrative purposes only and based on a basic mathematical recovery principle. Not intended to represent an investment in the fund or any other strategy.

Although there is no set definition, small-cap stocks are generally considered stocks with a market capitalization of roughly $250 million to $2 billion.

XSLV is based on the S&P SmallCap 600 Low Volatility Index, which calculates realized volatility by measuring the standard deviation of a stock over the trailing 12 months.

XSLV’s underlying index, the S&P SmallCap 600 Low Volatility Index, is rebalanced and reconstituted quarterly.

XSLV provides access to the low volatility factor without imposing sector constraints. XSLV’s underlying index rotates — through quarterly scheduled rebalancing — out of the most volatile sectors to provide risk mitigation potential.

XSLV can be used to provide a potentially smoother investment experience by dampening market volatility. In particular, XSLV may appeal to investors seeking equity exposure but who are concerned about deep drawdowns. Finally, XSLV can be combined with riskier strategies to help enhance portfolio diversification.
