The Power of Factor Rotation

by Ryan Hessenthaler, Partner and COO of Lunt Capital

Factor investing has garnered significant attention by academic and industry leaders alike. Identifying and investing in groups of stocks based on “factors” (such as high momentum, high quality, and low volatility) has produced outperformance over their respective benchmarks over the long-term (20+ year). Many investors are emboldened by long-term factor outperformance. However, owning factor investments that remain out of favor for months, quarters, and even multiple years poses significant challenges. Many investors ask, “Which factors should I own and when should I own them?” Join us for a fascinating exploration of factor investment strategies.

Three lessons from this presentation which could be applied to your portfolio include:

  • To expand the factor opportunity set (i.e. traditional factors plus non-traditional factors).
  • How to employ tactical, dynamic rotation strategies to adapt with changing market conditions and capture factor trends.
  • Groups of stocks which belong to different factor groups and can be used to implement factor strategies.
