IMAS Lunchtime Talk Series: Smart Beta 2.0

Recent years have seen increasing interest in new forms of indexation, referred to as Smart Beta strategies. Investors are attracted by their performance compared to the traditional cap-weighted indices. However, by departing from cap-weighting, Smart Beta equity indices introduce new risk factors for investors. In addition, the Smart Beta market appears to be inefficient today, due to restricted access to information and lack of independent analysis.

Smart Beta 2.0 is a new approach that allows assessing and controlling systematic risk, strategy specific risk, and tracking error. It provides better building blocks for active asset allocation and portfolio construction.
