The Upside of Less Downside: An equity solution for today’s volatile environment

With traditional safe-haven assets paying skimpy (even negative) yields, many investors realize that they may have to move up the risk curve to meet their long-term needs. But the bouts of volatility that have plagued equity markets can seem too risky to take on. We believe that efforts to not lose money can be harnessed to grow capital over time.

To hear more, please join Kent Hargis & Sammy Suzuki, Portfolio Managers—Strategic Core Equities, for an interactive discussion on reaching long-term goals with “The Upside of Less Downside”.

  • Multi-Asset Outlook 2021: Investing in a Post Covid-World Dec 16 2020 10:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Karen Watkin
    With recent positive news around successful vaccine development and the US election outcome now widely known, 2021 is likely to be a year of continued economic recovery, supported by low interest and governments’ fiscal stimulus programmes. Uncertainty is here to stay, however, driven by the evolution of the COVID-19 situation combined with the transition of administration in the US.

    How should investors position for a post-COVID world? In our webinar, we will discuss our three key investment ideas for 2021.
  • A Better Balance for Today’s Risk/Reward Challenges Dec 10 2020 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Sammy Suzuki and Kent Hargis
    In today’s markets, risk is a moving target. Even with strong policy forces supporting equity gains, sources of volatility are numerous. Kent Hargis and Sammy Suzuki, Portfolio Managers AB Low Volatility Equity Portfolio, will address how risk across many industries changed post-covid.
    Portfolio managers who aim to mitigate risk must be prepared to shift their defensive formations regularly and to look in new directions for stocks that can help anchor stability in an allocation as the risk landscape changes. Over the long term, we believe a dynamic defensive strategy can help fuel an offense during volatile market episodes. We continue to look for companies that offer a combination of quality and stability at attractive prices; the three core elements underpin our investment philosophy.

  • Navigating the fracture between the real economy and bond markets Recorded: Oct 27 2020 22 mins
    Flavio Carpenzano
    Investors today need to balance a challenging fundamental backdrop with the road to a full recovery likely to be long and the likelihood that governments and central banks will respond forcefully to any setbacks. It’s not just about disruption and dislocations caused by COVID-19 as there are other threats, such as the deteriorating global geopolitical environment. Yet, only an unlikely combination of economic disappointment and policy error would justify a negative view.

    Central bank support and ultra-low government bond yields will drive strong demand for higher-yielding credit sectors, even as fundamental conditions appear to deteriorate in the corporate market. With valuations still above long-term averages and the technical picture a positive one, investors should consider leaning into credit risk as the global economy heals and spreads continue to compress/normalize although being selective is crucial. Crossover (BBB/BB), banks and short maturity high yield bonds are currently among AB strongest convictions.
  • What COVID-19 Means for the Economic Policy Puzzle Recorded: Oct 22 2020 62 mins
    Darren Williams and Eric Winograd
    "The world has seen an unprecedented impact from the COVID-19 pandemic and the policies rolled out to shore up the global economy. Predicting the long-term economic repercussions is challenging, but we believe that the pandemic is likely to reinforce long-term trends that are already in progress.
    Darren Williams, AB’s Director of Economic Research, and Eric Winograd, US Senior Economist, take a closer look at deglobalization, the resurgence of populism and government debt growth. Some of the effects of COVID-19 policies are pushing on an open door—leaning in the same direction as these secular trends. Our guest speakers will also provide an update on November’s US presidential and congressional elections."
