How do I invest in multi-factor ETFs?

Factor strategies are equity strategies that use scientific observations and patterns related to stocks and their performance. The specific research-based observation is referred to as "factor". Based on the scientific findings, the goal is to identify securities that will outperform the broad market in the future. As well as examining the factors themselves, patterns of their occurrence in specific market stages have been identified.

Multi-factor ETFs make use of this knowledge by combining several factor strategies. In most cases, this is done by investing directly in the relevant stocks and not in single-factor ETFs. Some ETFs actively manage the weighting of the different factors, while others choose strategic weightings and maintain them over time. It is therefore worth comparing.

In this investment guide, you will find all available worldwide multi-factor ETFs. Currently, there are 7 multi-factor-ETFs available.
