EURO STOXX 50 profile transformed by technology stocks’ ascent

The sector composition of the Eurozone blue-chip benchmark looks very different from its inception 26 years ago. Most recently, two technology stocks – ASML and SAP – have had the biggest influence on the index’s direction, and may be re-positioning it in the eyes of investors.

WORKING PAPER: Understanding Investor Preferences through Passive Investment Flows

In this paper, we use the transparency afforded by ETFs to analyze investor flows, but also look through to the underlying holdings, to understand the time-varying preferences of passive investors. We have found that year on year, there is a great deal of variability in style, industry and regional exposures. However, these exposure preferences tend to be neutral over longer time frames. This is in contrast to a consistent preference for performance, reflected by flows going towards ETFs with strong in-year returns.

Charting innovation: digital asset edition

What is the value of diversification? We can visualize it using a simple three-asset portfolio, observing how the risk-adjusted performance changes when varying the correlation. Correlation measures the degree to which two variables move in relation to each other, and serves as a guide as to how well assets can diversify each other.
