Factors such as value, momentum, and low volatility, which are designed to improve equity returns, have yet to be delivered as expected. The underperformance can be attributed to the lack of exposure to growth sectors like technology and communication services which led most of the rally this year. However, some factor ETFs linked to growth have been successful. Despite the mixed performance, factor ETFs have seen a surge in assets, surpassing $1 trillion.
Goldman’s Hedge Fund ETF Is Crushing the S&P 500 With AI Bets (3 min read)
