EDHEC-Risk Institute: Monthly ERI Scientific Beta smart beta index performance report

Among the highlights of the March 2015 monthly performance report for the ERI
Scientific Beta indices:

* This month, the best performing smart factor index is the SciBeta Developed
Low Liquidity Diversified Multi-Strategy index, with a relative return of
1.10% compared to the broad cap-weighted index, while the SciBeta Developed
High Liquidity Diversified Multi-Strategy index posts the lowest relative
return (0.03%). Performance for smart factor indices exposed to risk
factors known to be well rewarded over long periods remains strong, with
annual performance in excess of broad cap-weighted indices ranging from
1.03% to 3.11% since inception for the Developed universe.
* Scientific Beta Multi-Beta Multi-Strategy (MBMS) indices associate an
effective choice of weighting scheme, in terms of diversification, with an
allocation to well-rewarded smart factors, to prevent indices from being
too concentrated in one factor and to reduce their specific risks. Over the
past ten years, the SciBeta Developed Multi-Beta Multi-Strategy EW (Equal
Weights) index and the SciBeta Developed Multi-Beta Multi-Strategy ERC
(Equal Risk Contribution) index post strong annual relative returns of
1.93% and 1.82%, respectively, compared to cap-weighted indices.
* Looking at Scientific Beta Multi-Beta Multi-Strategy (MBMS) indices for
various regions, we note that this month the best performing indices are
the SciBeta Developed United States Multi-Beta Multi-Strategy indices, with
a relative return of 1.22% for the EW scheme and 1.19% for the ERC scheme
compared to the broad cap-weighted index.
* Over the long term, all Scientific Beta Multi-Beta Multi-Strategy indices
post positive excess return compared to broad cap-weighted indices. Using
long-term US track records since January 1, 1974 (40 years), the EW and ERC
benchmarks post respective relative returns compared to cap-weighted
indices of 4.09% and 3.88%.

As part of its policy of transferring know-how to the industry, EDHEC-Risk
Institute has set up ERI Scientific Beta. ERI Scientific Beta is an original
initiative which aims to favour the adoption of the latest advances in smart
beta design and implementation by the whole investment industry. Its academic
origin provides the foundation for its strategy: offer, in the best economic
conditions possible, the smart beta solutions that are most proven
scientifically with full transparency of both the methods and the associated
risks.
