Factor Investing: It Works for Credits Too

There is extensive academic research that confirms the existence of factor premiums. Much of the conversation to date has been about factor investing in equity markets. Many of the explanations that apply to equities are also relevant to corporate bonds.

We invite you to join our webcast with Patrick Houweling and Jeroen van Zundert from Robeco who will share their research findings and insights into this approach to investing in credits.

Constructing your portfolio in a disciplined way to gain exposure to Low Risk, Value, Momentum and Size factors can help to achieve better risk-adjusted returns for your portfolio, with volatility similar to the index.

Based on this research Robeco launched a Global Multi Factor Credit Capability which is live since June 2015.
