Abstract: Abstract We investigate the role of sectors on the performance of smart beta products during the COVID-19 crisis. Cross-sectional differences in excess returns (versus a market capitalized portfolio) are driven by strong exposures to COVID-19-related industry rotation, rather than to long-term structural causes.
