Aberdeen Standard Investments launches second smart beta fund

Smart_betaAberdeen Standard Investments (ASI) has added a second fund to its “Smarter Beta” fund range.

The Smart Beta Low Volatility Global Equity Growth Fund is described as a diversified multifactor global equity strategy and is available on the Aberdeen Global platform in Luxembourg.

The fund will offer diversified exposure to five ‘factor premia’: value, quality, momentum, low volatility and small size.

The new fund follows the launch, in May 2017, of ASI’s Smart Beta Low Volatility Global Equity Income Fund.

Both funds are managed by ASI’s quantitative investment strategies team under the leadership of Sean Phayre, the firm’s global head of quantitative investments.
