Invesco PowerShares Capital Management has unveiled two portfolios offering access to low volatility and high beta versions of the S&P 500 Index. The PowerShares S&P 500 Low Volatility Portfolio will replicate the performance of the S&P 500 Low Volatility Index.
The PowerShares S&P 500 High Beta Portfolio is benchmarked against the S&P 500 High Beta Index. The portfolios have been listed on the NYSE Arca. The funds are non-diversified and can invest more of their assets in securities of individual issuers than a diversified fund.
