Blending Quality, Value, Momentum, Size and Minimum Volatility
The investment premium historically offered by market factors, such as quality, value, momentum, size, and minimum volatility, has attracted many investors who are seeking to diversify their traditional equity portfolio allocations, but these factors have also followed cyclical trends of their own. Alternatively, we can turn to multiple-factor strategies that seek to combine these various stock characteristics to diversify and serve as a core of the portfolio.
In the upcoming webcast, BlackRock's iShares and VettaFi will highlight historical drivers of returns and outline a strategy that provides exposure to rewarded factors while aiming to maintain a controlled level of active risk relative to the market cap benchmark.
- Defining the market factors.
- How market factors have reacted in today's environment.
- An outline of a multi-factor strategy that provides target style factor exposure.
- How financial advisors can incorporate a multi-factor strategy at the core of their equity portfolios

This event is intended for Financial Professionals only – not for public distribution.
Investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal.
There can be no assurance that performance will be enhanced or risk will be reduced for strategies that seek to provide exposure to certain quantitative investment characteristics (“factors”). Exposure to such investment factors may detract from performance in some market environments, perhaps for extended periods. In such circumstances, a strategy may seek to maintain exposure to the targeted investment factors and not adjust to target different factors, which could result in losses.
The strategies discussed are strictly for illustrative and educational purposes and are not a recommendation, offer or solicitation to buy or sell any securities or to adopt any investment strategy. There is no guarantee that any strategies discussed will be effective.
