Guarding against Tail Risk – Strategies for Institutional Investors

Presented by

Brendan Maton

About this talk

Introduction Tail risk has gained a considerable profile because of the major risk events that characterised the global financial crisis of 2007-2008 and subsequent market volatility. Recent research by SSgA and the Economist has revealed that investors now seem more wary about the impact of tail risk events on their portfolios, having experienced significant drawdowns. They’re seeking ways to help guard their investments from future tail risk events. This webcast will discuss: • Key findings of the SSgA and Economist research • How have changing perceptions of tail risk affected the investment strategies of institutional investors? • Where might investors look to address tail risk concerns? • The merits of a blended convergent/divergent investment strategy • The role of CTA and managed futures within a Tail Risk mitigation solution
