Event Description

Factor Zoo: A Systematic Look at Factor Investing
October 24 | 11:30 am | Minneapolis


The rise of factor-based investing has coincided with a "zoo" of equity factors documented in academic research, but not all factors are created equal. How can investors know which factors are worth pursuing? This presentation will examine popular alternative factors and demonstrate Dimensional's approach to assessing research on expected returns.
