Hedging a Portfolio Against Inflation: What Do I Use?

Graham Day
In light of years of monetary and fiscal stimuli, many believe the economy may be predisposed to inflationary pressures. In this webinar we will discuss how an allocation to commodities can hedge a portfolio from inflation as well as look at which asset classes have performed well in rising, falling and stable inflationary environments. We will also discuss why treasury-inflation protected securities (TIPS) may not be a suitable hedge against inflation.

  • Planning for the Perfect Storm of Volatility Jun 18 2015 8:15 pm UTC 60 mins
    Presenter: George Hashbarger. Moderator: Robert Huebscher
    This presentation will focus on the development of four current market conditions that may lead to an increase of volatility during the latter half of the year, with an emphasis on explaining the financial concepts underpinning those market conditions. Moreover, the presentation will provide strategies that may mitigate this potential increase in volatility. The four market conditions that will be discussed are:
    •The possibility of an earnings recession

    •The expected Fed rate hike in September

    •The potential for oil to retrace to the downside

    •Ongoing concerns about continued US dollar strength
  • Putting Clients First: Client-Advisor Relationship in a Goals-Based Framework Jun 10 2015 8:15 pm UTC 60 mins
    Presenter Scott Welch with Moderator Robert Huebscher
    Wealth management is in a constant state of evolution. Yet, many advisors still hold on to outdated processes and practices that are being supplanted by a new generation of online advice technologies. To remain competitive and relevant, advisors need to rethink their core value propositions and find new ways to add value to client relationships.

    Scott Welch offers a solution. In this live webinar, he will review the fundamentals of behavioral finance and its application to portfolio management to demonstrate:

    •Why advisors need to differentiate themselves in a “race to zero” market environment that is becoming increasingly commoditized by online advice platforms;

    •How adopting a goals-based approach to proposing, managing, and reporting on client portfolios can help advisors can align themselves more effectively with the ways clients actually think about their money; and

    •How embracing this enhanced level of service will require advisors to rethink traditional client reporting and communications.
  • Active vs. Passive Management: A Live Debate Recorded: May 27 2015 69 mins
    Presenters: C. Thomas Howard, PhD and Andrew Berkin, PhD. Moderator: Robert Huebscher
    Two industry thought leaders will square off on the central issue that confronts all advisors and financial planners: active versus passive management.

    In this live, Munk-style debate, Tom and Andrew will take opposing sides on the following proposition:

    It is possible to identify active mutual fund managers who will deliver superior risk-adjusted performance.

    Tom will argue for the proposition and Andrew will argue against it. After their formal presentations, they will respond to questions from Bob Huebscher and from the audience, who will be given the opportunity to vote on the proposition both before and after the debate. Results for both votes will be compared to determine the “winner” of the debate.

    Tom and Andrew will also be available to continue discussion of the issues raised in the debate on APViewpoint.
  • Why Everything You Thought You Knew about Investing Is Wrong Recorded: Apr 29 2015 61 mins
    Presenter: Michael Edesess
    An advisor’s success in growing and retaining client relationships depends in part on their clients’ belief that the advisors can enhance investment returns. Yet, most financial advisors utilize theories and practices that are of no help at all in improving client outcomes. As more investors become aware that passively-managed index funds generally beat the vast majority of actively-managed funds, the advisory profession has responded by emphasizing strategies, from rebalancing to “smart beta,” that claim to deliver new investment alpha.

    This webinar will show that none of these and other implied “alpha-generators” adds any value, and that advisors would be better off following Warren Buffett’s advice that “you should invest in stocks as you would in a farm.” Using this axiom as a launching point, Michael will:

    •Describe the simple “safety-first” investment strategy presented in his book, The 3 Simple Rules of Investing;
    •Demonstrate why adopting this approach will have a wider benefit by reducing systemic risk and Wall Street power; and
    •Show how adopting this strategy will free advisors to spend less time focusing on chasing investment performance and more time on delivering value-added financial planning advice and solutions to their clients.

    There will be plenty of time for Q&A and Michael will also be available to answer additional questions about this presentation on APViewpoint.
  • The Great Fixed-Income Debate: Bond Funds versus Individual Bonds Recorded: Apr 22 2015 61 mins
    Presenters: Bob Veres, Brian Battle, Adam Weigold
    As the Fed considers whether to tighten its interest rate policy in June or September, how should you adjust your clients’ fixed income portfolios to prepare for the coming “Bondmaggedon”? In this lively debate format:

    •Brian Battle of Performance Trust Company will argue in favor of individual bond positions.
    •Adam Weigold of Eaton Vance, will put forth the advantages of investing in the bond funds.

    Attendees will have time to ask questions of all presenters, and they will be able to vote on which argument they find most persuasive. Bob, Brian and Adam will also be available to answer additional questions about this presentation on APViewpoint.
  • The Incredible Shrinking Alpha Recorded: Apr 14 2015 61 mins
    Presenter: Larry Swedroe
    Why can so few investors, advisors and fund managers outperform the market? In this webinar, Larry will leverage academic research to explain:

    •Why alpha generation will become even more challenging in the future;
    •How the migration of lesser-skilled alpha investors to passive strategies will increase competition for alpha among skilled investors;
    •Why alpha is becoming a zero sum game.

    There will be plenty of time for Q&A, and after the session Larry will be available to discuss its content on APViewpoint.

  • The Myth of the Most Efficient Market Recorded: Mar 4 2015 62 mins
    Presenter: Jim O'Shaughnessy
    Assets in index funds and ETFs are reaching all-time highs, driven in part by the belief that stock selection strategies have become a fool’s errand for investors who are trying to outperform the market.

  • Retiring in a Low-Return Environment Recorded: Feb 24 2015 62 mins
    Presenters: Wade Pfau, David Blanchett, Michael Finke
    Most research on optimal retirement income strategies is based on long-term historical averages. Retirement experts David Blanchett, Michael Finke and Wade Pfau will show how using returns better calibrated to current financial asset values (rather than historical averages) leads to a much more conservative estimate of safe-withdrawal rates for retirees. They’ll also discuss how to use different return scenario perspectives to improve the quality of investment advice and recommendations for your clients.

  • Two Schools of Thought on Retirement Income Recorded: Dec 17 2014 62 mins
    Presenter: Wade Pfau Moderator: Robert Huebscher
    There are two fundamental schools of thought concerning the planning and implementation of retiree income withdrawal strategies:

    · The probability-based school of thought argues that systematic withdrawals from a diversified portfolio, when based on a withdrawal rate that would have worked historically, will be fundamentally sustainable over a client’s lifetime.

    · In the safety-first approach, also called lifestyle finance, spending goals are segmented between essential and discretionary needs, and clients use different investing strategies for each type of goal. This webinar will provide a detailed analysis of both schools of thought and how they can be applied to a financial planning practice.

    This session will provide a detailed analysis of the similarities and differences between these schools of thought and how they can be applied in a financial planning practice.

    Wade Pfau is a professor of retirement income in the new Ph.D. program for financial and retirement planning at The American College in Bryn Mawr, PA, and is the chief financial planning scientist for inStream Solutions. He is a frequent author on topics related to financial planning and writes a monthly article for Advisor Perspectives.
