Abstract

This study analyzes the influence of indexing strategy on investors’ behavior and financial markets through agent-based modeling. In this analysis, I focus on smart beta index, which is proposed as a newstock index and condsidered to have better characteristics than traditional market capitalization-weighted indices. As a result of intensive computational simulation studies, we have concluded that a smart beta strategy is effective even in cases where the initial number of smart beta investors is small. This study also finds a significant relationship between the number of smart beta investors and trading volume. These results are significant from both practical and academic viewpoints.
