Factor investing is growing by leaps and bounds, and many investors seem to agree that factor investing is a smarter way to invest. Yet, as the investment management industry progresses to more factor centric portfolios, issues need to addressed to ensure we meet our clients’ goals:

  • What factors exist beyond traditional equity factors to help diversify a portfolio
