DEF - Defensive Equity Invesco ETF

Defensive Equity Invesco ETF logoThe Invesco Defensive Equity ETF (DEF) is an exchange-traded fund that seeks to track the performance of the Invesco Defensive Equity Index. The index is designed to provide exposure to US companies that exhibit lower volatility characteristics relative to the broader US equity market.

The fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing at least 90% of its total assets in the securities that make up the index. The index is made up of 100 US large-cap stocks selected based on their lower volatility characteristics, including beta, market capitalization, and sector volatility.

As of March 2023, the fund has total net assets of around $1.6 billion and an expense ratio of 0.55%. The fund's top holdings include Johnson & Johnson, Procter & Gamble, PepsiCo, and Coca-Cola.

The Invesco Defensive Equity ETF may appeal to investors looking for exposure to US large-cap stocks with lower volatility characteristics, potentially providing downside protection during market downturns. However, it is important to note that the fund may not provide as much upside potential as higher-risk funds, and its focus on defensive stocks may result in underperformance during periods of market growth.
