The fund has management fees of 0.50%. The Desjardins USA Multifactor-Controlled Volatility ETF (DFU) tracks the Scientific Beta USA Multifactor-Controlled Volatility Index, representing the performance of US equity securities which have employed a similar weighting methodology to DFC’s underlying index.
