The CAIA Virtual Chapter, in partnership with AlphaCore Capital and BNP Paribas held an educational event on Factor Investing last month. Factor investing has grown exponentially over the past 5 years. But while investors seem to agree that factor investing is a smarter way to invest, aspects of factor investing still need to be flushed out:
• How should we construct factors?
• How do factors fit into traditional “style boxes”?
• What factors exist beyond traditional equity factors?
• Can factors replace categories? (see our most recent whitepaper in AIAR here)
