FTSE Russell has published its Smart beta:2016 global survey findings from asset owners, which finds that the year is a turning point in smart beta evaluation. The report says that the percentage of asset owners currently evaluating smart beta has doubled since 2014 and 2015 levels.
 
The report finds that this growth has come from asset owners who had not previously evaluated smart beta, as well as from asset owners who have evaluated smart beta in the past, but who choose not to implement, and who, FTSE Russell believes, are again evaluating smart beta.
 
The firm writes that as smart beta adoption and evaluation have become broad-based, the percentage of asset owners reporting that they have not evaluated smart beta has
dropped notably – from 40 per cent in 2014 to 12 per cent in 2016. Total adoption levels in the survey have increased, from 32 per cent in 2014 to 36 per cent in 2016. FTSE Russell believes the decline in the adoption rate in 2015 is due to sample differences.
