2.The ASI article mentions that Smart-beta-ESG strategies would provide better investment performance. Do you agree to it? Why or why not?
3.Suppose that you are interested in replicating this Smart-beta-ESG strategy. Please suggest how you construct a portfolio with identified securities (including funds) and their portfolio weights.
