Mercer European director of strategic research Phil Edwards and other noted experts explore the governance, cost and time saving implications of using a factor-based investment approach in this thought-provoking video series, created in partnership with Asset.tv.
Whilst factor investing has been around for a long time, the vehicle for which investors can access factors are more refined.
Rather than focusing on complex attributes, such as momentum, investors new to factor investing can focus on simpler attributes, such style (growth vs. value), size (large cap vs. small cap), and risk (beta).
The complexities, nuances, and dependencies that factor into every investment decision grow exponentially each year. To effectively manage and grow investments requires a higher level of rigor and specialization. It’s a level of proficiency few organizations can achieve — and it’s what sets Mercer apart. Our global team of 1,200 professionals, including 120 manager researchers, provides in-depth knowledge in research, advice, and solutions few others can match.
