John Hancock Multifactor ETFs
Each John Hancock Multifactor ETF seeks to track a custom index built upon decades of academic research into the factors that drive higher expected returns.
John Hancock Multifactor ETFs, which seek to track indexes designed by Dimensional Fund Advisors, can help you target investment opportunities across the large- and mid-cap equity markets or in nine individual sectors.
Multifactor investing traces its roots to the academic research of Eugene Fama and Kenneth French, among others. Their premise was simple: No single factor could sufficiently explain the cross-section of expected stock returns. This insight and subsequent academic research helped isolate the factors that have driven stock returns over time. Today, the team at Dimensional Fund Advisors has distilled decades of research into the indexes underlying John Hancock Multifactor ETFs.
"Combining multiple factors better equips a portfolio to smooth out the variability of returns and improve the likelihood of outperformance across different types of markets compared with single-factor approaches."
