How Risk Efficient Is Your Strategic Beta?

August 2018
By Ted Lucas, Head of Investment Strategies and Solutions for Hartford Funds

Make equity risk work harder to enhance capital growth potential.

The rapid proliferation of non cap-weighted ETFs has presented investors with a dizzying array of choices. There are strategies targeting single risk-factor exposure (e.g., value, low volatility, momentum, quality, or size), those employing alternative weighting methods (e.g., fundamental, dividend, or equal weight) and an expanding set of multifactor strategies available today. With lower forward-looking returns for equities likely, investor interest in such strategies continues to accelerate as a potential means to enhance capital growth beyond market beta.
