Avantis launched new ETFs on November 9, 2023 – AVMC, AVMV, and AVEE. I briefly summarize them here.
Disclosure: Some of the links on this page are referral links. At no additional cost to you, if you choose to make a purchase or sign up for a service after clicking through those links, I may receive a small commission. This allows me to continue producing high-quality, ad-free content on this site and pays for the occasional cup of coffee. I have first-hand experience with every product or service I recommend, and I recommend them because I genuinely believe they are useful, not because of the commission I get if you decide to purchase through my links.

Avantis launched 3 new ETFs to provide narrow exposure to corners of the market that they previously didn’t have dedicated funds for.
AVMC – Avantis U.S. Mid Cap Equity ETF
AVMC, the Avantis U.S. Mid Cap Equity ETF, provides exposure to the arguably under-appreciated segment of the stock market known as mid cap stocks, in between large caps and small caps, in this instance specifically in the United States. This is the first dedicated mid cap offering from Avantis. AVMC is considered a mid cap blend fund and slightly tilts toward factors like Value and Profitability.
AVMC has an expense ratio of 0.18%.
AVMV – Avantis U.S. Mid Cap Value ETF
AVMV goes one step further and hones in on U.S. mid cap value stocks that exhibit robust profitability. In some instances, market timers may prefer the more attractive valuations of mid cap value stocks versus small cap value stocks, in which case AVMV may be useful.
AVMV has a fee of 0.20%.
AVEE – Avantis Emerging Markets Small Cap Equity ETF
AVEE is the Avantis Emerging Markets Small Cap Equity ETF, providing broad small cap exposure within Emerging Markets and targeting stocks with greater expected returns.
Remember Avantis doesn’t have an explicit Emerging Markets small cap value fund, so the first question many probably have is how this new fund compares to AVES, which is effectively a mid cap value fund for Emerging Markets. AVEE is holding smaller stocks than AVES, but AVES will be holding stocks that exhibit more Value than AVEE. We’ll have to wait and see where factor loadings specifically come in at. I’ll return and update this post at that point.
AVEE aims to hold companies with market capitalizations no greater than $25 billion.
The fund has an expense ratio of 0.42%.
What do you think of these new funds from Avantis? Let me know in the comments.
