Finding Strength in High Quality & Low Volatility

Presented by

Gregg Guerin

About this talk

For over two decades, First Trust has been using factors to select stocks, and in 2020 we now bring two of our best-selling Quality and Low Volatility U.S. equity strategies to the UCITS market. After a great 2019, the S&P 500 continued to reach new all-time highs in January this year, but there are some investors looking to protect on the downside while continuing to be invested. On this call, Gregg Guerin, will discuss in more detail how historically Quality and Low Volatility factors have outperformed the S&P 500 in market downturns since 1995, how these factors can play a key part in profitable long-term performance, and what are the key potential benefits for investors of our two new UCITS ETFs
