Don't Expect Outperformance From Low-Volatility Stocks

Low-volatility strategies have a role to play, but investors shouldn't expect to get higher long-run returns by taking on less risk, says Vanguard's John Ameriks.

Alex Bryan: From Morningstar, I'm Alex Bryan. Low-volatility strategies have gained popularity over the last few years. Since first being introduced in 2011, low-volatility branded ETFs and mutual funds have garnered nearly $41 billion in assets. Here to discuss these trends is John Ameriks from Vanguard. He's the head of the quantitative equity group there.

John Ameriks: That's right, thanks Alex.
