About This Episode
One of the most widely studied aspects of the capital markets is the low-volatility anomaly. It is the fact that low-volatility stocks have achieved higher performance than what theory predicts. My guest today, Dan Waldron, oversees one of the most popular ETFs based on that strategy. He is here to talk about how a low-volatility and high-quality strategy will achieve superior returns over time.
