If there were ever a time for minimum volatility ETFs, it is now. Minimum volatility ETFs are a name for a broad group of funds that seek to minimize volatility by choosing a basket of stocks that have historically been more placid than their cohort. With virus numbers rising again, and a potentially very turbulent election, many think markets are going to be highly volatile—or just sharply negative—for the rest of the year. With that in mind, here are some of the best low volatility ETFs: BlackRock’s iShares Edge MSCI Min Vol USA ETF (USMV), the Invesco S&P 500 Low Volatility ETF (SPLV), and the iShares Edge MSCI USA Quality Factor ETF (QUAL).

FINSUM + Magnifi: QUAL seems like a very good choice. The fund tries to reduce volatility by focusing on the very best quality companies (such as those with a high return on equity, stable year-over-year earnings growth and low financial leverage). The fund is weighted towards IT, health care, consumer discretionary, and communication.
