Abstract

Value and momentum returns and combinations of them are explained by their loadings on global macroeconomic risk factors across both countries and asset classes. These loadings describe why value and momentum have positive return premia whilst at the same time being negatively correlated. The global macroeconomic risk factor model also performs well in capturing the return premia on other factors that have been constructed to explain various cross-sections of assets. The findings identify a macroeconomic source of the common variation in return premia across asset classes and countries.
