Single Factor Strategies – Swiss Equity Mandates

Here’s a list of single factor strategies that I can implement for Swiss Equity mandates:

  1. Low Volatility
  2. High Beta
  3. Momentum
  4. Dividend
  5. Quality

Note:

  • certain of these strategies can or will lead to high turnover
  • certain of these strategies should  be used in a complimentary fashion to an existing core portfolio by preference
  • these strategies provide investors with passive, rule-based exposure while retaining the possibility to generate excess returns when compared to a cap-weighted benchmark index.
