'Smart beta' is the term given to a financial market index which has been designed with the intention of constructing an investment portfolio and uses a rules-based methodology that differs from market capitalisation based weightings used by traditional market benchmark indices which are known as 'beta'. Unlike traditional market capitalisation weighted benchmarks, smart beta indices have an investment outcome in mind. Smart Beta combines the best of active and passive investing: having the potential for outperformance while being rules-based, transparent and cost efficient.
