Raimund Mueller from UBS explores the big picture of alternative beta investing and why investors need to take a closer look.


UBS Asset Management offers a wide range of Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) providing access to Alternative Beta equity indices developed with the leading financial index provider MSCI. This unique range of Factor ETFs aims to improve returns, reduce risks and enhance diversification. The factor return drivers are captured through rules-based, transparent and flexible single strategies. These allow investors to access equity factors in the USA and Eurozone, whilst ensuring cost-efficiency and factor diversification. This new generation of Alternative Beta indices provides an optimal trade-off between high factor exposure and turnover.
