Factor Investing in Practice: Diversification Benefits and Implementation Costs

Factor investing emerged as the byproduct of factor models of asset pricing and is widely popular today among institutional investors. It consists in holding assets with positive exposure to selected risk factors and, if possible, shorting those with negative exposure. We will assess the merits of diversified portfolios of factors on the stock market by using sector investing as the benchmark. Then, we will examine the question of practical implementation. We will discuss the impact of shortselling restrictions on factor performance. Using a large database of the US institutional investors' trades, we will provide new insights on the question of factor portfolio transaction costs.

Framework for Risk Premia Investing: Is There Anywhere to Hide?

Alternative risk premia (ARP) strategies are traditionally assumed to diversify both equity and bond market risk. We investigate the nature and risk characteristics of commonly known investable ARP strategies using investment bank strategy data. While most of the strategies have low full sample betas to both equity and commodity markets, several strategies exhibit statistically significant positive betas to bond markets. Additionally, characteristics of most ARP strategies change in the tails of equity and bond market distributions. Consequently, we propose a framework for diversified ARP portfolio construction that uses a hierarchical risk allocation process instead of whole sample volatilities and correlations.
