The last smart beta webcast

Webcast | Appears in: Multi-asset

Join Adam Berger and Conor McCarthy for a short, provocative discussion drawing on their recent paper, “The last smart beta paper you’ll ever (have to) read.” In 30 minutes, we’ll explain why the hype surrounding smart beta threatens to drown out valuable insights for improving portfolio outcomes — and how the key selling points of most smart-beta products — simplicity, transparency, and static implementation — may actually make these strategies less effective. We’ll leave you with specific ways to leverage the ideas of smart beta to create more efficient portfolios.
