The Great Migration: Building Core Smart Beta Portfolios with ETFs – WisdomTree Asset Management – 4.20.17


Now On Demand.

Traditional ETFs that track capitalization-weighted indexes offer investors market returns or beta exposure to a particular index. Smart beta strategies that use non-cap-weighted or factor-based weightings offer investors the opportunity to outperform and also to reduce market risk. Smart beta strategies are gaining popularity with advisors, and are even replacing traditional ETFs as core portfolio holdings. WisdomTree has a 10 year track record of delivering factor-based solutions and helping advisors to build their own smarter portfolios. Join us for this in-depth discussion that will cover:

  • The Case for Factor Investing
  • Risk/Return Smart Beta Evaluations
  • A Historical Performance Perspective
  • Global Portfolio Construction Considerations
