Invesco PowerShares expands low volatility family of ETFs


Trading has begun on NYSE Arca for two new Invesco PowerShares ETFs that provide investors with access to low volatility strategies covering emerging and developed markets. The portfolio names and ticker symbols are: PowerShares S&P Emerging Markets Low Volatility Portfolio (EELV); and PowerShares S&P International Developed Low Volatility Portfolio (IDLV).

Following the successful launch of the PowerShares S&P 500(R) Low Volatility Portfolio (SPLV), which has attracted the highest monthly inflows of all ETFs listed in 2011 and over USD1 billion in AUM, the two new ETFs expand PowerShares’ suite of low volatility strategies to include key market segments outside of the United States providing investors with further diversification opportunities. The three ETFs are designed to work synergistically to optimise investors’ global low volatility exposures and reduce overall portfolio risk.

"Given today’s market environment, investors are naturally seeking better ways to reduce volatility in their portfolios," says Ben Fulton (pictured), Invesco PowerShares managing director of global ETFs. "We believe the PowerShares family of low volatility ETFs may provide investors a degree of protection in down cycles while still participating in upward trending cycles, and have the potential to improve risk-adjusted returns over the long term."
