Abstract

Investors in equities tend to follow well-defined investment strategies based on characteristics such as market capitalization and dividend yield or factors such as size, value, momentum and quality which capture the cross-section of asset returns. In this paper, we explore the interaction of such investment strategies in a demand-driven framework. The aim is to quantify the impact of a reallocation of capital between strategies on the cross-section of their performance. The main finding is that self- and cross-impact caused by the reallocation of capital can explain capacity of strategies, correlation of returns and the cyclical nature of investment strategies’ risk premia.

Keywords: demand driven asset pricing, reallocation of market capital, impact matrix.

JEL Classification: C3, C6, G11, G12.
