We have seen significant factor rotations in the last year as the macro economic cycle turned. There has been an exponential growth of ESG investing and increasing demand from investors to incorporate ESG principles into their factor portfolios. Joining us today is Anthony Kruger, EMEA Head of Factor ETFs at BlackRock and Hitendra Varsani, Executive Director, Global Solutions Research at MSCI to discuss the latest factor updates and share how investors can integrate factors and ESG to help improve long-term performance and reduce risk.



In the realm of investing, a factor is any characteristic that can explain the risk and return performance of an asset. For over 40 years MSCI, starting with Barra, has researched factors to determine their effects on long term equity performance. MSCI has developed Factor Indexes and Factor Models in consultation with the world’s largest investors and has research backed by four decades of Factor data compiled by a 200+ global research team.
