About this talk

For Asset Owners, the ability to compare equity fund managers for hiring, firing, and allocation decisions lies at the heart of the investment decision making process. With the rise of both factor investing and smart beta products adding to the spectrum of equity funds available to investors, the decision to choose a new manager has become increasingly difficult. On the investment manager side, the current fee conscious environment and growing trend to move to lower cost index solution, is putting a strain on active managers. Now more than ever managers need to prove their skill and differentiate themselves from their increasing competition. During this webinar we will cover: • Different approaches to factor analysis • The importance of using factor analysis in the manager selection process • How factor attribution can isolate an investment manager’s skill
