Value Exchange Traded Fund  

Value investing considers stocks that can be described as ‘cheap’ or undervalued based on well-defined accounting ratios. Price-to-earnings (P/E), based on income statement attributes, is an indication of what investors are willing to pay per unit of earnings of a company. A low P/E is indicative of an undervalued stock. Price-to-book (P/B), based on balance sheet attributes, compares the market value of a company to its book value. A low P/B is again indicative of an undervalued stock.

The NewFunds Value Equity ETF is aimed at providing Investors with diversified exposure to 30 highly liquid constituents securities in the South African equity market that exhibit value characteristics (low price-to-earnings and price-to-book ratios) in their performance by tracking the Absa Wits Risk-Controlled SA Value Index, where the constituent security’s weights in the Value Index are determined by applying an equal risk contribution weighting scheme. The Value Index was created by Absa Bank Limited in collaboration with Wits University using their Findata@Wits® database. The ETF is total return in nature therefore all dividends and income received in the Portfolio is reinvested at each income distribution date.
