FACTOR & STRATEGY INDICES

STOXX Europe 600 Industry Neutral Ax Size

Index Description

STOXX Industry Neutral Single and Multi-Factor Indices aim to harvest the risk premia of several academically validated style factors — Value, Momentum, Quality, Size and Low Risk within each ICB Industry. At the same time the rules ensure tradability and diversification as well as limit untargeted systematic exposures. STOXX uses Axioma's risk model and optimizer to construct the industry neutral factor indices. The STOXX industry neutral single and multi-factor indices are based on the respective STOXX country or regional benchmark indices.

Key facts

  • Invest in targeted factor exposures with managed liquidity and risk profiles across various regions
  • Use of Axiomas factor risk models and portfolio construction expertise to define the factors based on extensive validation from research and having a clear economic rationale
  • Factor family consists of 5 single factor indices (Value, Momentum, Quality, Low Risk, and Size) and one multi-factor index
  • Same index construction rules applied across the factor family
  • Strict neutrality imposed on ICB Industries to remove industry bets relative to the respective benchmarks
  • Single factor indices maximize the target factor while constraining the exposure to other factors
  • Multi-factor index employs a bottom-up approach by maximizing the exposure to an equally weighted aggregated multi-factor score
  • Ensures tradability by managing turnover and exposure to illiquid positions
  • Ensures diversification using country controls
