What is VFMF?
Vanguard U.S. Multifactor ETF seeks to provide long-term capital appreciation. The fund s investment advisor constructs a diversified portfolio that invests primarily in U.S. common stocks with the potential to generate higher returns relative to the broad U.S. equity market by investing in stocks with relatively strong recent performance, strong fundamentals, and low prices relative to fundamentals as determined by the advisor. The portfolio will include a diverse mix of companies representing many different market sectors and industry groups. The advisor uses a quantitative model to evaluate all of the securities in an investment universe comprised of U.S. large, mid, and small capitalization stocks and to construct a U.S. equity portfolio that seeks to achieve exposure to multiple factors subject to a set of reasonable constraints designed to foster portfolio diversification, liquidity, and lower volatility.The investment advisor s quantitative model first groups the securities within the fund s investment universe by market capitalization and then ranks each security within each group by reference to characteristics designed to measure its exposure to the momentum, quality, value, and volatility factors. The model then places emphasis on the securities with the lowest rankings related to volatility and the highest rankings related to momentum, quality, and value factors. The model determines the identity and amount of securities to include within the portfolio based on such rankings.
