Presentation :

In this paper, we document the benefits of a new form of market-neutral portfolio strategy that aims at delivering absolute return over the full business cycle through systematic equity style timing decisions. Using a robust multi-factor recursive modelling approach, we find strong evidence of predictability in value and size style differentials. We use these econometric forecasts to generate systematic style timing allocation decisions. These portfolio decisions can be implemented using Exchange Traded Funds on US style indexes.
