Using Factor Rotation to Capture U.S. Large Cap Returns – Nasdaq – 10.10.18


Now On Demand.

There are large disparities across factors within the U.S. Large Cap asset class, and factor rotation provides opportunities to capture return disparities. Nearly every portfolio has an allocation to U.S. Large Cap and we’ll show you how to use our Large Cap Factor Rotation strategy to complement or replace an existing U.S. Large Cap allocation. Participants will learn:

  • Which Factors should be included in a portfolio
  • What “Opposite Side” Factors are and how they can impact investment portfolios
  • What strategy can be used to come into or out of a specific factor
  • How Factor Rotation is different from Factor Blending
  • Introduction to the First Trust Lunt U.S. Factor Rotation ETF (FCTR)
