Smart Beta ETF List

Smart Beta ETFs are funds that follow an alternative weighting strategy compared to the traditional cap-weighted indexes. They are a blend of passive and active investing that adjusts technical and/or fundamental factors such as size, value, momentum and volatility. In general, Smart Beta ETFs try to enhance returns, reduce risk and add diversification in a transparent and cost-effective way.
