Choosing the Factor: Not Which But When

Investors interested in reaping the benefits of factor-based investing in their portfolios have long believed the ultimate question to be, “Which factor should I choose?” Our most recent research shows, however, that investors would be better served to ask, “When should I favour each factor?” Our research also suggests that your investment horizon, rather than the timing of incorporating factor based strategies, is key to meeting your objectives.
