NNIP’s Verhoeven: how to benefit from behavioural biases

A rules-based approach is key to protecting investors from behavioural biases, according to NNIP’s Stan Verhoeven, who runs the NN (L) Multi Asset Factor Opportunities fund.

Verhoeven said his four-strong team, which includes Keevin Hille, Willem van Dommelen and Jianbin Xiao, are able to take advantage of behavioural biases through the fund's factor-investing approach.

Also in this video, Verhoeven said a performance lag in December can be put down to individual positions. In December 2016, the fund lost 2.6%, compared to a sector average, in the flexible US dollar category of a 1.1% rise.


He highlighted the fund’s short positions in bunds and the euro and said the ECB’s December statement affected the yields of these assets.

Over the three months to the end of February 2017, the fund returned 1.3% in the flexible US dollar, which compares with a sector average of 4.2% over the same time period.
