About Scientific Beta

As part of its policy of transferring know-how to the investment industry, EDHEC-Risk Institute (part of EDHEC Business School) established Scientific Beta as an autonomous company in 2012. In its original form, Scientific Beta aimed to foster the adoption of the latest advances in smart beta design and implementation by the investment industry.

The company has since evolved to being the one of the most trusted sources of scientific investment insights and robust institutional index solutions for the ultimate benefit of asset owners. The company offers both core index solutions – single factor and multi-factor indices, low carbon and ESG indices, and macroeconomic factor equity indices – for asset owners and satellite index solutions for asset owners via asset management partnerships.

In 2020, the Singapore Exchange (SGX) acquired a majority stake in Scientific Beta. SGX continues to maintain the strong collaboration with EDHEC Business School, in addition to the principles of independent, empirical-based academic research, that has benefited Scientific Beta’s development to date.

As at the end of 2021, assets tracking Scientific Beta indices were in excess of USD 60 billion. In 2022, Scientific Beta was recognised as the world's “Best Specialist ESG Index Provider” at the ESG Investing Awards by an independent jury of ESG professionals.
