Christian Charest: For Morningstar, I'm Christian Charest. Factor-based ETFs, which seek to exploit investment premiums such as value, momentum or low volatility, have dominated new product launches in Canada over the past several years. And with this increased popularity comes increased scrutiny over how to best use them in a portfolio. Should you pick just one factor that makes the most sense to you? Or if you combine them, do you decide on the allocation yourself, or do you let a professional portfolio manager do it for you? To discuss these questions, I'm joined today by Antonio Picca, Head of Factor-Based Strategies at Vanguard Quantitative Equity Group.
