Factor Investing – the best white papers of 2016

In this guest post, Andrew Perrins, CEO of Savvy Investor, shares some of the best Factor Investing white papers from the last 12 months.

Smart Beta strategies continue to gain ground

Factor investing strategies continue to grow in popularity, so it is no surprise that many of the most popular papers on Savvy Investor last year were written on this subject. Click to see our list of The Top Smart Beta Papers of 2016 from the recent Savvy Investor Awards. The overall award for this category went to EDHEC-Risk Institute, who produced a number of excellent papers on the subject.

Below I list the winning paper of 2016, together with other popular papers that have been published already on Savvy Investor in 2017.

In case you missed earlier this :

Yes this Quant Analytics is coming so much sooner than you know. Once running, all bundled courses will be removed permanently from the ELITE . As explained in the video above, these courses have been evaluated by our marketing expert who feels they may be worth thousands each alone. Who knows? But there is already an intro to a Day Trading Guru charging well over $50k/year for his services. What should that tell you? There is a market willing to pay for these premium services. Guess what this new Analytics service will target? I posted this message on my Facebook earlier:

If you think people cannot charge $50k as a mediocre ‘day trading guru’, you live in another world. When you compare what I am about to unleash, I should be able to charge 4-5x that to 7-9 digit folks who run trading firms. These are the same people who want to automate their successful trading operations. Take heed while you can to take advantage of my offerings NOW! Each one will be spun out where my marketing genius claims I should be charging thousands for each one. That day is coming very soon. Take it or leave it, I will be going premium as I hinted a while back.http://quantlabs.net/mkt/quant-elite/


IT IS NOW OR NEVER!

In summary, if you have the technical skills, you may want to take advantage of what this service has to offer.

What is the latest status of learning Python R for algo trading

Somebody who has been on my newsletter list has come back to ask about this new transition from going from Quant Elite membership to my new Analytics service.

I made a video response here

I said in the video that I’m building out the new analytic service as we speak. I am hoping to move ahead with the new analytics service much sooner than later.

Here is what I mean

As said, my Quant Elite will be closing and I’m already seeing much content being stripped away as I move everybody into the new analytics service.

Thanks Bryan

The Robustness of Smart Beta Strategies (EDHEC-Risk Institute, 2016)

This EDHEC paper examines the importance of robustness for smart beta strategies, explaining how a strategy being “relatively robust” differs from “absolute robustness”.

Concerns regarding the new Fama-French 5-factor model (Robeco)

Eugene Fama and Kenneth French have revamped their famous 3-factor model by adding two new factors to analyze stock returns: Profitability and Investment. But this 5-factor model raises many questions, and competing academic models are already being proposed.

Investing robot juicing your return by 15%

Why does Bloomberg focus on these near impossible stories all the time?

“Tax drag” doesn’t sound very pleasant, and it isn’t. It’s the friction that taxes inflict on your investment returns, robbing you of easy, risk-free additional money you could be making to live on in retirement.
