Fund Objectives

BMO Low Volatility Canadian Equity ETF has been designed to provide exposure to a low beta weighted portfolio of Canadian stocks. Beta measures the security's sensitivity to market movements. The Fund utilizes a rules based methodology to select the least market sensitive stocks based on the one year beta. The 40 lowest beta stocks from the 100 largest and most liquid securities in Canada are selected. The underlying portfolio is rebalanced and reconstituted semi-annually in June and December.
