Click to Print This Page

FTSEFTSE has partnered with Westpeak Global Advisors to launch a new equity style index offering. The new FTSE ActiveBeta Index Series is based on research from Westpeak identifying that momentum and value—two widely used approaches to active management—are, in fact, systematic sources of returns and should therefore be viewed as additional forms of beta (or market) returns, or ‘active betas’. The research also provides evidence of the counter-cyclical nature of momentum and value returns, which implies that the combined capture of momentum and value should provide superior risk-adjusted performance compared to the capture of either momentum or value alone.
