Abstract

Over the past decade, key trends have developed that will help shape the future direction of growth for the index investment industry. As the once distinct line between active and passive management has become blurred, one direction of potential growth is the indexation of multi-asset solutions. Multi-asset solutions can potentially push the boundary of index investing beyond asset class beta and systematic risk premia. As multi-asset solutions become more mainstream in the asset management industry, the potential role of indices in underlying pre-packaged multi-asset investment products may warrant more discussion. In this paper, the Index Research & Design team at S&P Dow Jones Indices explores the potential role of multi-asset solutions in the indexing landscape.
