Goldman Sachs Smart Beta

The Smart Beta portfolio invests more heavily in companies based on trends with the potential to outperform the broader market over the long term. These companies have at least one of the following characteristics: 1) they’re cheap relative to their accounting value, 2) they tend to be sustainably profitable over time, 3) their returns are relatively low in volatility and/or 4) they’ve been trending strongly upward in price. (These characteristics are often referred to as Smart Beta factors.) While this portfolio maintains broad diversification and can lead to higher potential long-term gains, it will also be exposed to a greater risk of periodic losses.
