  • Defining A Fast Growing Investment Trend: 'Smart Beta'

    Summary

    • 'Smart beta' ETFs are one of the fastest growing products in investment management.
    • We define this segment in detail and estimate its size as $75B for domestic equity exposure.
    • We take the view that all risk factors go through cycles, so assuming that smart beta ETFs will always outperform 'traditional' beta is misguided.
    • However these ETFs are very useful to investors since they do the 'heavy lifting' when getting exposure to strategies like low volatility, which will drive future adoption.
