Why Invest in the Fund


As risk in the market increases, the portfolio shifts to take a more defensive posture, targeting a lower beta than the index. When risk levels decrease, the portfolio migrates to a more market-like stance, targeting a higher beta, allowing for the full potential to benefit from the upward trend in the market.


INTECH’s dedicated volatility management team, with over 25 years experience, is comprised of experts who have dedicated their life’s work, academic research and careers to developing this disciplined, repeatable and unemotional process based on the sole input of volatility.


Our process is designed to construct a portfolio of long-only, large-cap stocks with the highest return potential and lowest risk. By seeking a smoother ride, the fund may help investors maintain equity market exposure and have the opportunity to build more wealth over time.
