Podcast Episode 9: The factor zoo

Posted by Robin Powell on February 9, 2017

Factor zoo.

The latest TEBI Podcast, sponsored by Regis Media, is now online and features Larry Swedroe. Larry has just written his eighth book on investing. It’s called Your Complete to Factor-Based Investing, and it was co-authored with Andrew Berkin.

In this podcast, I ask him:

With more than factors in the so-called “factor zoo” to choose from, has factor-based investing gone too far?

How many factors are there that ordinary investors really need to know about? And what are they?

As more and more investors seek to gain exposure to specific factors, is there a danger that they will cease to outperform? Might we even be seeing a bubble forming?

I hope you enjoy the podcast and, if you do, please share it.
