How did we identify this ETF:
A complete pool of 2100+ ETFs is screened on various qualitative and quantitative parameters to evaluate efficiency, tradability and fit. The metrics used were alpha, beta and R-Squared with respect to the segment benchmark and ETF specific metrics such as expense ratio, drawdown, volatility and the overall rating. We evaluate all ETFs and assign a composite score based on our analysis and then select the top ones in a category based on that comprehensive score by the in-house research/quant analysts team. The fund's expense ratio is among the lowest in the segment and its AUM and daily trading volume (7.1M) are much more than its competitors (VCR and IYC) that makes it the most liquid consumer sector ETF. The strategy is rebalanced on a quarterly basis with the rebalancing mechanism being determined by an algorithm that takes into account the overall performance of the strategy so far.
