At SC Capital Advisors, we stay abreast of the latest in institutional asset class research. Increasingly, institutional investors are targeting “risk factors” or sources of long term outperformance identified by academic research. The newest investment vehicles are designed to track benchmarks constructed based on fundamental and technical factors rather than commercially constructed, market cap-weighted benchmarks. We use these Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) to complement our asset class investments in the Core component of our portfolios.
