    Managing Volatility: Index approaches for a smoother ride
    Marlies van Boven, Managing Director, Research & Analytics, FTSE Russell; Brendan Maton, IPE Recorded: Mar 12 2019 62 mins
    When faced with market volatility, many institutional investors typically allocate a percentage of their portfolio to cash. Sitting, waiting, for the waters to calm before they dip their ‘investment toe’ back in.

    However, non-participation presents a timing risk and may mean ‘missing the boat’ when markets calm and climb.

    How can investors reduce overall portfolio risk while remaining invested? How can index-based investment approaches help investors meet their defensive objectives?

    In this webinar Marlies van Boven, PhD, Managing Director Research & Analytics, FTSE Russell examines what popular indexed-based strategies can do to help limit the impact of portfolio volatility and mitigate risk.
