Are you looking for a way to choose better investments? If so, consider “factor investing.”

Professor Elroy Dimson of the Cambridge Judge Business School believes factor investing leads to better results.

When selecting investments, consider factors like:

Sensitivity to inflation
Company size
High/low dividend yield

How to talk to your parents about their finances.
