Investors sceptical over smart-beta benefits 

"(…) European investors meanwhile are growing impatient. In a survey by EDHEC Business School, 81% of investors said the credibility of reported track records was undermined by providers' opacity, especially for newer types of index. (...) None of the major factors on which smart-beta funds are built came close to beating the market during the tech bubble. Research by EDHEC Business School shows that most advanced-beta strategies had a phase where they underperformed market cap by 10% over a period of between two and five years. (…)"

"(...) In a presentation last week at the EDHEC Risk Days Asia 2014 conference in Singapore, Lionel Martellini displayed a time series of the S&P 500 Index from 1958 to 2014 to demonstrate that the effective number of constituents (ENC) of the index at its highest is equal only to 260 individual stocks and at its lowest falls to just 120 individual stocks.

Financial Times (04/07/2014) 
Big ideas from unheralded sources 

"(...) EDHEC has come up with a range of what it calls “scientific beta” indices. There are ETFs based on these indices; Morgan Stanley run them for institutions here in the UK while Amundi has recently launched a retail ETF that meets European “Ucits” rules on diversification and that trades on Euronext. These ETFs are great value and I think they are a brilliant core holding for anyone who wants to go one better than the DFA approach. They aim to combine value, size, low volatility and momentum strategies into one product, and exclude all those stocks that tend to underperform over a stock market cycle. (...)"
