Tap into the investable correlation between behavioral factors and the market performance of public companies

The CIBC Human Capital Index represents a broadly diversified long-only large-cap strategy designed to provide exposure to companies identified as having strong corporate cultures. The Index is suitable as a diversified core holding for ESG-sensitive investors who wish to hold companies with strong employer-employee relationships, or as a pure tactical play for exposure to the ‘Human Capital Factor.’

This innovative quantitative investment strategy was developed together by CIBC Capital Markets and renowned behavioral economist Professor Dan Ariely, Ph.D., and Co-Founder, Irrational Capital.
