The case for multifactor funds is essentially the case for diversification, which Nobel Memorial Prizewinning
economist Harry Markowitz has described as the only “free lunch” in investing. Investors
shouldn’t put all their “eggs” in one factor. But just because the argument for factor diversification is
simple doesn’t mean that selecting and sticking with a multifactor strategy is easy. In fact, in light of the
proliferation of multifactor funds, choosing from the now-expansive menu is becoming more difficult by
the day. In this paper, we take a closer look at the case for spreading factor bets, provide a framework to
help investors navigate the multitude of multifactor funds, and profile a select set of the funds to bring
this checklist to life.
