Low volatility mutual funds

Low volatility mutual funds are mutual funds (ETFs) designed to exploit the volatility anomaly.

These can be either index funds that usually replicate popular publicly available indices, such as MSCI Minimum Volatility Indexes or the S&P 500 Low Volatility index, at relatively low cost. But these can also be more sophisticated actively managed funds, designed to avoid the common pitfalls of generic low volatility strategies.
