Alternative approaches to multi-factor index construction: Like-for-like comparisons
Factor index construction is currently a widely discussed topic among institutional investors and asset managers, particularly whether the construction of multi-factor indexes should be top-down or bottom-up. In this paper, we compare the exposure and diversification outcomes of multi-factor portfolios that use a composite index, a composite factor and a multiple tilt approach to index construction. Read it to find out which approach exhibits the higher factor exposures for any levels of correlation and for both concentrated and diverse portfolios.
