An interactive platform lets the user add iShares Minimum Volatility to a market cap weighted asset allocation. It then calculates how that increase would affect the portfolio’s risk and return, and ultimately increase the portfolio’s Sharpe ratio. The tool also charts projected upside and downside capture, and offers a file download of all results. The intuitively designed web page has is available to the general public in addition to advisors and their clients.
