FTSE Russell's sixth annual survey of global institutional investors on their use of smart beta reveals a shift in perception. Smart beta allocations are viewed more like active rather than passive investments, as they entail taking on additional risk. 


FTSE Russell is proud to present the sixth annual survey of global institutional asset owners’ attitudes toward evaluation and adoption of smart beta. Each year we have surveyed decision makers across a broad spectrum of AUM tiers and organizational types at a variety of stages in their evaluation of smart beta. This year, 178 asset owners responded. Respondents are drawn from North America (46%), Europe (29%), Asia Pacific (19%) and other regions (6%) and have an estimated total AUM of over $5 trillion.
