IPE Breakfast Seminar Series presents Smart Beta for Smart Investors

IPE has assembled a faculty of specialist asset managers prepared to engage with pension funds in a morning of presentations and discussions dedicated to Smart Beta. In particular we asked them to consider a number of issues/areas that IPE believes are of key interest to pension funds regarding Smart Beta:

  • What is wrong with the market portfolio? And do its inefficiencies really matter to a long-term investor?
  • Solution focus: Minimum variance/maximum diversification/risk parity
  • Fundamental indexation/value/momentum etc.
  • Describing and categorising ‘smart beta’ for investment decision-making
  • Building portfolios of ‘smart beta’: mix them up or keep them pure?
