Factor Attribution (1999 to 2018)

  • Style analysis confirms that EIA’s rules-based methodology adapts to changes in monetary environments and does not mimic a smart beta or multi-factor strategy.

  • The IFED methodology’s “active strategy component”, which modifies portfolio composition based on changes in monetary conditions, is the primary driver of outperformance (alpha).
