Risk Premia - Nobody goes there anymore. It's too crowded

  • Crowding reflects a collective belief in a risk premiums existence, yet its garnered a bad reputation in the financial media.

  • We’ve all heard the warning bell: as more portfolio owners chase the benefits of a particular investment strategy, the subsequent surge in flows will lead to negative outcomes.

  • However without crowding, risks are only idiosyncratic and not systematic

  • Therefore you should embrace crowding and this presentation explains why

  • Diversification is back in the spotlight to reduce equity risk factor exposure and/or improve robustness

  • Long menu of “diversifying strategies” features many that are relatively opaque, complex and expensive

  • Innovations in “liquid alternatives” such as Alternative Risk Premia (ARP)

  • How are ARP strategies actually performing live, in terms of absolute return and diversification?

  • What are the key implementation decisions for investors to consider?
