Strategic beta ETFs that seek the premium of a single factor — such as low volatility — have gained in popularity, but they may complicate investors’ pursuit of alpha, diversification, and portfolio stability. In addition, John Hancock Investments, Dimensional Fund Advisors and ETF Trends will discuss how mixing a variety of single-factor approaches can produce unintended consequences, such as exposure overlaps, higher costs, and style drift, raising risks in investors’ portfolios.

Join Tom Lydon, editor and publisher of ETF Trends, as he moderates a discussion of single versus multifactor strategic beta ETF strategies. Topics will include:

  • Factors versus dimensions
  • Limitations of single-factor investing
  • Measuring factor impact on performance
  • Incorporating strategic beta ETFs in a diversified portfolio
