How do I invest in the value factor?

Statistical observations show that companies with relatively low valuations have tended to outperform the broad market in certain economic periods in the past. This research-based observation is referred to as the value factor. Typically, the price-earnings ratio is used as a measure for a company's value. This usually means comparing the current share price with the profit of the last period. More advanced approaches use additional variables such as price-to-book value and enterprise value-to-cash flow from operations.

This factor strategy can also be implemented by means of an index. In this investment guide, you will find all available worldwide value ETFs. Currently, there are 1 ETFs available.
