“Factor investing – the next revolution in investment management”
Factor investing, the idea that systematic investment factors such as size, value, quality or momentum are the broad persistent drivers of return that underlie all asset classes, is grounded in years of academic research. Over the last 10 years smart betas and factor investing are changing the way portfolios are managed with many large and sophisticated investors adopting a factor-based framework. In parallel, for retail investors smart beta portfolios under the wrap of ETFs provide cheap and easy access to factor-based portfolios.
