iSTOXX Europe Carry Factor

Index Description

The iSTOXX Europe Factors Indices offer investors a straightforward and intuitive tool to extract factor risk premia on equities while controlling risks and keeping their focus on tradability. The selection and weighting are based on SunGard APT Risk model which uses a set of constraints to minimize risk and maximize factor exposure. These indices differ from each other by the factor or risk premia they are exploiting. The index family contains indices based on the following single factors: carry, low risk, momentum, quality, size and value. Additional multi-factor indices gather all stocks with a high overall tilt to single factors.

Key facts

  • Range of 6 different single factors indices
  • Multi-factor approach to gather highest exposure from each dimension
  • Selection and weighting based on an optimizer
  • Monthly rebalancing to allow for updates required by the changes in the market
  • Set of constraints to minimize risk and maximize factor exposure
