  • Multifactor vs. single factor approaches: Evaluating methods to minimise the timing risk of each factor
  • Exploring the effect of more concentrated vs more diversified Smart Beta methodologies

11.00 Uhr Factor Investing in Practice: Efficient Implementation of Risk Premia Strategies
  • Why is factor investing becoming more and more popular: a different reading of the active vs. passive debate
  • The first (but not the toughest) challenge for investors: where does multifactor strategy sits in an institutional portfolio? Core/Strategic vs. Satellite/Tactical
  • Not everything that is backed by thick academic literature works: the cost of trading! Factor portfolios tend to have a large turnover and that is not suitable for each market. What an investor should watch out for! And here we mention the cost of front running
