Copal Amba hosted a breakfast event on Smart Beta Investing on February 4 at The Grand Hyatt in New York. The event was attended by several senior index product and ETF professionals from top financial services firms.

Amit Sinha, Portfolio Manager at Pacific Life, was the speaker at the event. Amit manages a multi-asset fund at Pacific using systematic investment strategies. He spoke on the significance, challenges, and opportunities surrounding Smart Beta Investing. At a granular level, Amit covered trends in the Smart Beta space, the value addition of Smart Beta investments, and challenges faced by funds.

At the event, Dr. Paul Alapat, Senior MD, Quantitative Services at Copal Amba said: “Holding a breakfast event to exchange ideas and experiences on Smart Beta was timely, given growing investor interest in passively managed funds and the explosion of intelligent beta fund launches over the last three years. The pedigree of the attendees at this breakfast event is testimony to how topical the theme is and the widespread market interest in non-market-cap weighted indices.”
