LONDON (6 February 2020) – Aon, a leading global professional services firm providing a broad range of risk, retirement and health solutions, has issued ‘Factor investing – standing out from the crowd’. In this new paper, Aon's Global Asset Allocation team looks at the concept of factor investing and whether recent market concerns about its increased popularity and the perception of ‘over-crowding’ are justified.
Andrew Peach, head of factor investing at Aon, said:
“Factor investing has been one of the investment success stories of the last decade but – maybe inevitably – that success has come with concerns about the extent of its recent growth in popularity from a low base. However, the factor investing element of the investment industry is still small compared with the fund flows out of active management and into passive investment strategies.
“In this new paper we look at these issues, how the market has developed, how it’s progressing and how value can be maintained in the future.”
