The factor investing phenomenon is increasingly moving into the mainstream, with more and more investors allocating to factor-based strategies. At Robeco we’ve long been forceful proponents of the benefits of the evidence-based approach that factor investing involves. We have provided our clients with access to portfolios providing systematic exposure to a range of factor premiums for well over a decade.

But as more investors allocate to factor strategies, they are asking us more questions about the best way to do so. We have responded by performing in-depth research into the questions that matter to our clients, and have set out our most pertinent findings in this book.  The book consists of three parts: strategic allocation to factor premiums, understanding the factor premiums and how to implement factor investing in an efficient way.

In these papers important questions are being answered: is it reasonable to infer from backtests that factor strategies are likely to outperform in the future? And can these strategies be relied on to outperform in real-life situations – when trading costs and restrictions are taken into account? Can mutual funds successfully adopt factor investing strategies? Does factor investing work with credits as well?
