I did a long time ago. The factor exposure of MSCI multifactor indices is extremely poor.

I have to discount VFMF' factor exposure by 2 and the momentum exposure by 4 before it even starts to consider other funds. I believe this is because the FF2013 factor data I used has similar premia for all different factors (except bond factors) and VFMF is the fund that has the most balanced factor exposure out of the fund selection.
