  • Institutional Webinar: Strengthening Your Portfolio Core Aug 21 2019 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Michael Hunstad, PhD, Head of Quantitative Strategies, and Jordan Dekhayser, CFA, Head of Quantitative Equity Research
    There have been more than 48 large volatility shocks since 2007*, and this pattern is unlikely to change. Institutions around the globe are finding themselves in a unique market environment as a result of seismic shifts in market fundamentals, central banks lowering interest rates and questionable quantitative easing programs. Government agencies continue to use these levers in a manner that is unsustainable – making volatility more prevalent and unpredictable than ever before.

    Join Michael Hunstad, Ph.D., Head of Quantitative Strategies and Jordan Dekhayser, CFA, Head of Quantitative Equity Research and Strategy, as they discuss key approaches to help capitalize on the new age of portfolio risks:

    • Uncover the common pitfalls in traditional portfolio de-risking methods
    • What to look for in low volatility investment strategies (spoiler alert, it’s not just lower beta exposures)
    • Potential changes to your passive core portfolio that will strengthen your active satellite

    *Volatilty shocks greater than 5 points. Volatility increases are represented by any increase in the VIX daily, as of December 31, 2018.
