As more investors realize the power of indexing and its effects on long-term returns, more are choosing smart beta ETFs for their portfolios. By screening for various fundamental factors, smart beta indexes hope to overcome many of the issues with traditional market-cap weighting techniques. These include large-cap biases and owning “bad” stocks.

Yet, while smart beta continues to grow in popularity, most investors are using the ETFs as satellite positions or as a way to supplement a traditional indexed portfolio.

But with the proliferation of new smart beta ETFs, you can build a successful core portfolio with them exclusively, covering a full range of asset classes. And with returns on many smart beta indexes slightly outperforming regular ones over the long term, there’s plenty of incentive to do just that.
