A minutes vol ETF could be less high-risk than an ETF that tracks the S&P 500 during times of increased volatility, yet these type of investments do not guarantee that there won't be any losses in case of a slump.
" Low-volatility funds could underperform when the wide market is doing well, and also they could experience decreases throughout sharp modifications," wrote Fidelity in a post at the time. "However, the assumption for a min vol ETF investor is that any kind of possible losses throughout a market decline could be smaller about various other protections that could have extra exposure to volatility. Therefore, a less dangerous portfolio could recover faster compared to the wide market in case of a decline when supplies recuperate."
