FTSE ADS Saudi Minimum Variance Fund
Providing unique exposure to Saudi Arabia with mitigated volatility
A four-year track record of consistent market outperformance with lower volatility
FTSE ADS Saudi Minimum Variance is an open-ended public fund with daily liquidity, invested exclusively in equities that are listed on Saudi Arabia’s stock exchange Tadawul. Co-developed with FTSE Russell, the fund targets risk-adjusted market returns in the medium to long run by applying a transparent rule-based approach – Smart Beta – that reduces the volatility of the index it tracks. This index is rebalanced periodically.
Combining Low Volatility, Performance and Accessibility
For the past four years since inception in May 2019, the fund has consistently demonstrated a lower volatility rate and outperformed global and local benchmarks. As a reflection of increased market confidence in the fund’s safety and expert management, FTSE ADS Saudi Minimum Variance in 2022 received regulatory approval for retail distribution and significantly slashed its minimum investment requirement.
