Factor Investing in Bond Markets

Professional Investing Series

Despite the popularity of factor investing in equities, there is little research on risk premia in fixed income

Riccardo Rebonato, Professor of Finance at EDHEC Business School and EDHEC-Risk expert on Factor Investing Fixed Income, has been working to change that, and he will discuss his findings in this interactive webinar.

During this webinar hosted by the CFA Institute, Professor Rebonato will discuss "Factor Investing in Bond Markets" and will explain why the timing of factor exposures is far more promising in fixed income than in equities.
