Amundi unveils dynamic multi-factor allocation range

Amundi unveils dynamic multi-factor allocation range

Amundi has bolstered its smart beta and factor investing range with the launch of a new dynamic multi-factor allocation process, the company has announced.

The new approach is to be applied to its Luxembourg international flagship Amundi Funds SICAV, which includes the Amundi Funds Dynamic Multi Factors Euro Equity and Amundi Funds Dynamic Multi Factors Global Equity strategies.

These solutions are managed within Amundi’s smart beta and factor investing dedicated platform, which is supported by Thierry Roncalli, head of quantitative research at Amundi and his teams.

In addition to open-ended funds, Amundi said it is fully committed to adapting the approach to specific investors’ constraints to build customised solutions.

The funds aim to seek long-term capital growth by applying the multi-factor allocation process on eurozone, Europe, and the global equity universe.

Amudi said it also offers investors the opportunity to capture factor risk premia and navigate through equity market cycles.

Commenting on the launch, the managing director of Amundi ETF, indexing and smart beat, Fannie Wurtz said: ‘Factor Investing is gaining strong traction amongst investors and we are pleased to extend our broad smart beta and factor investing capabilities.

‘We are convinced that this risk-focused investment philosophy will meet investors’ structural need for robust risk-management through factors, as well as helping them facing the very specific current environment.’

The Amundi smart beta and factor investing solutions platform currently represents over €19 billion in assets under management in both active and passive vehicles.
