Adding Alternative Beta to your Portfolio

Presented by

Andrew Walsh, Head of UBS ETFs UK & Ireland

About this talk

Whether you call it 'smart beta' 'alternative beta' or 'factor-based investing', what is clear is that the emergence of indices using these principles means that investors are increasingly able to gain inexpensive and efficient access to the various benefits they can provide such as enhanced returns, risk diversification, reduced volatility etc.. The existing and well-established 'core – satellite' asset allocation approach can now be seen to be evolving into a 'core factor – satellite' one. UBS will provide an in-depth look into this topic. They will explore different viewpoints and cover the following aspects of the subject: · Foundations of factor investing · Construction of investible factor indices · Properties of factor exposures over time and throughout different business cycles · Mutli-factor applications and factor-based asset allocation · Factor investing with ETFs
