IVW is one of the most established and popular growth-focused ETFs, holding firms with growth characteristics from the S&P 500 Index. S&P's style methodology selects companies based on three growth factors: sales growth, earnings growth, and momentum. IVW was one of the first growth-focused ETFs to launch. The portfolio shows only modest sector tilts compared to our large-cap-growth benchmark, with a small but persistent bias toward midcaps. VOOG and SPYG track the same index with similarly low holdings cost. Overall, the fund is inexpensive and provides balanced exposure to large-cap-growth firms.
