Global Beta Low Beta Factor Index

 

The Strategy

The Global Beta Low Beta Index strategy takes the 100 securities with a beta, relative to the S&P 500 Index, that rank in the lowest quintile in the S&P 500.  We use their 12-month trailing revenue, relative to each other, to weight the 100 securities.  To manage concentration risk, Global Beta Advisor imposes a 5% security issuer cap on the portfolio.
