Factors are the underlying characteristics that drive returns of stocks, bonds and other assets. For instance, Value, Momentum, Quality and Low Volatility are four common equity factors that have the potential to deliver excess returns over the broad market. Factor investing targets exposure to these factors to help maximize a portfolio’s return and manage its risk.
