Multifactor exchange-traded funds have been gaining assets in recent months and will likely be one of the hottest investment products in 2017, said Todd Rosenbluth, director of ETF research at CFRA. Multifactor ETFs are designed to outperform their benchmarks by focusing on companies that have characteristics that have performed well in the past such as momentum and quality. Rosenbluth highlights the iShares Edge MSCI Multifactor USA (LRGF) - Get Report , Goldman Sachs ActiveBeta US Large Cap Equity ETF (GSLC) - Get Report and the JPMorgan Diversified Return US Equity ETF (JPUS) - Get Report as being ones to watch in the coming year.
