About this talk

As factor investing becomes more popular, questions regarding performance and factor valuations are increasingly common. Despite seemingly simple questions, answers can be far from straightforward. In a recent research paper published by FTSE Russell it had been concluded that as with individual stocks, there is no definitive valuation metric which provides a clear answer, and different valuation metrics may well result in different conclusions. Join experts from FTSE Russell and DWS as they review how tilt-tilt indexes work, analyse various factor indexes and discuss top/bottom contributors and detractors from a factor, sector, single stock, country or currency perspective.
