Why don’t weight your indices by market-cap?
Posted on September 21st, 2016 by OWLinsights
Market cap has little or no bearing on company performance. Our indices utilize a multi-factor approach to index creation shown through academic research to manage the risk inherent in how portfolios are constructed. This data driven, academic approach to building indices is at the core of how we design indices. For more information on our multi-factor indices built with our partner Axioma, click here.
