Are Sectors the New Factors?

When Markets Change, Diversification Evolves.

In this paper, we look inside the Holy Grail of diversification and see how it works in a world where financial markets are as complex as they are fast-paced.

As we will see, we should not take diversification for granted but instead be ready to identify, adapt and quickly exploit diversifying opportunities – like the ones offered from sectors and risk factors – as they arise.

What is needed, is to take a step further: from a well-known principle to a scientific and opportunity-driven approach to diversification to guide investment decision making.

  • The More The Merrier? Not Always
  • Opportunities Lie Between and Within Asset Classes
  • Why Sectors Matter
  • Not All Sectors Are Born Equal
  • Where do we go from here?
