Title

Navigating the Factor Zoo

Event Description

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.  Please join CFA Society New Mexico for a late afternoon event with Marcus Axthelm of Dimensional Fund Advisors for a presentation on Navigating the Factor Zoo. Appetizers and networking to occur before the presentation."
