Smart Beta

MPI Webcast Series: March 6-7, 2018

Understanding Performance in a Rising Rates Environment

Smart beta strategies, which recently crossed the $1 trillion AUM threshold, have been among the most popular growth segments over the last 10 years. This presentation looks at how higher yields could impact one corner of the smart beta world—low volatility smart beta ETFs.

In this webcast, we present:

  • A recap of smart beta strategy growth 2008-2017
  • How rising yields could impact product performance in the year ahead
  • An alternative framework for estimating risk exposures when evaluating these products

The event expanded upon an MPI research piece looking at this issue.
