Factors and Test Assets for the German Market

The aim of this data-page is to provide the Fama-French factors, the Carhart factor and test assets for the German equity market to the wider community of academic research. The factors and test assets have been calculated as part of a joint project of the Centre for Financial Research (CFR) and the chairs of Prof. Alexander Kempf and Prof. Erik Theissen. We hope that this will be a useful and valuable resource to the research community. The factors and test assets are constructed as described in Artmann, Finter, Kempf, Koch and Theissen (2012).
