Northern Trust delivers investment solutions to institutional and high net worth investors around the globe. Asset Management at Northern Trust begins with listening - in order to develop thoughtful solutions to your unique investment objectives.
The Factor Research Quarterly webinar series is designed to share our most recent insights into the current state of equity factors. Whether it’s referred to as smart beta, factor premiums, systematic alpha, or Northern Trust’s own Engineered Equity; factor-based investing is the new paradigm in equity investing and an essential topic for sophisticated investors.
Join us for our inaugural webinar which will provide quick timely insights into the equity factor market designed to leave you with key information to help you think strategically about your factor exposure. Our experts will discuss how interest rate hikes, the economic landscape, and continuous volatility impacts the markets; and suggest which factors could be used to best navigate the upcoming environment.
Yes we know you are sick of Smart Beta but forget that term for one moment – we will focus instead on how investors can build and manage equity factor-based strategies that deliver the investment outcomes they want. We’ll also go over some obvious pitfalls that you can and need to avoid. Our featured speakers are Matthew Peron, MD, global equity, and Michael Hunstad, SVP and Director, Quantitative Research, Northern Trust Asset Management. With two decades of experience managing these strategies, our NT speakers have seen what works and what doesn’t.
