Elston launches strategic beta indices

Elston Consulting has launched a series of multi-asset, strategic beta indices, which are diversified across global asset classes, Maria Zahn has announced.

Ms Zahn, Elston’s head of institutional clients, said: “While there is growing popularity for low-cost ETFs, we think the real value is from combining them intelligently to deliver on client outcomes.”

Launched with Frankfurt-based index provider Solactive, the Elston Strategic Beta indices use a pool of liquid ETFs that track indices of global asset classes, selected and combined using the London-based firm’s proprietary quantitative models.

The strategies are ‘long-only’, and are constructed using liquid, physically-backed ETFs available from leading ETF providers.
