Hartford Risk-Optimized Multifactor REIT Index


  • Seeks to diversify across property types and invests deeper into the US REIT universe, where there may be more opportunity for growth
  • Focuses on reducing single-company risk and freeing capital for allocation toward companies with potentially more favorable investment attributes
  • Seeks improved returns and similar risk (relative to traditional capitalization-weighted REIT strategies) over a complete market cycle

Description of Methodology

The rules-based, proprietary methodology employs a multi-layered risk-controlled approach that seeks to de-concentrate individual security risks while selecting companies exhibiting favorable risk premia factors including quality, momentum, and value. The Strategy Index seeks to harvest risk premia factors through systematic risk- and factor-weighting twice annually, with a reconstitution occurring in March and September.
