"Post-Factor Investing: An Evolutionary Step Forward for Active & Passive Investing" 

Financial science and our understanding of what drives asset prices have evolved considerably since the advent of computers allowed large data sets to be analyzed more quickly and easily. The implications on the financial services industry have also been significant, including the introduction of passive index funds, single-factor and multi-factor strategies. The proliferation of factors, and strategies that follow them have created a complex system for investors to navigate, as undoubtedly many "passive" factor-based strategies make very "active" bets relative to the market portfolio. In this presentation, we provide a review of the literature on factors and attempt to offer investors a more cohesive framework to construct an efficient equity allocation.
