Hedging a Portfolio Against Inflation: What Do I Use?

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.

    Over the past decade, assets invested in ETFs have grown by 746% compared to 88% for mutual funds(1), as many investors and advisors now consider ETFs to be a viable alternative. In this presentation, Steven Vannelli will use Morningstar’s recent decision to merge ETFs and mutual funds into the same peer groups as a starting point for analyzing the similarities—and differences—between these two options. He’ll also identify when an ETF may be a more appropriate choice for clients. Advisors will learn:

    - The key questions to ask about the pricing, performance, expense ratios and tax impact of mutual funds and ETFs;

    - Why mutual funds and ETFs with a similar focus, such as those targeting specific geographical regions, may deliver significantly different results;

    - How to effectively educate clients on the potential benefits and risks of ETFs.

  • Tools for Collaborative Portfolio Design Recorded: Jan 26 2017 61 mins
    Christopher J. Sidoni, CFA, CFP
    Eligible for one CFP Board® and one IMCA® CE credit

    Is investment portfolio design becoming commoditized as countless articles, papers, and blogs say? If this process merely involves measuring risk tolerance and recommending a model portfolio the answer is “Yes.”

    But there’s a better way to design investment portfolios. It starts by recognizing that risk perception isn’t static and that knowledgeable clients make better investment decisions. In this presentation, Christopher will:
    •Provide a framework for a collaborative, educational design process that gives clients greater awareness of their own risk tolerance, a truly customized portfolio, and a higher level of confidence in their decisions;
    •Explain how to incorporate client behavioral risks such as “frame of reference risk” into portfolio construction; and
    •Discuss sophisticated tools that make this process more interactive and engaging.

  • The Impact of Changes to Carried Interest on Wealthy Clients Recorded: Nov 1 2016 61 mins
    David Lesperance
    Both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have promised to get rid of the “carried interest” taxation that benefits many wealthy individuals. This provides favorable treatment of long-term capital gains compensation for certain categories of business owners, partners and executives. Should this occur, this compensation will be taxed at normal income rates, which are double the normal long-term capital gains tax rates. Advisors whose high net worth clients are facing this risk need to create a backup plan to reduce their clients’ current tax obligations without sacrificing their quality of life.

    In this webinar, David will review the elements of such backup plans and outline the specific steps needed to prepare for the possible elimination of the carried interest treatment. Advisors will learn:

    •How carried interest works;
    •How to identify clients who could be affected by its elimination;
    •The elements of a viable backup plan; and
    •How to discuss and mitigate the “hard” and “soft” issues that serve as motivating factors in triggering a backup plan.

  • Adaptive Asset Allocation: A Dynamic Strategy for Good Times and Bad Recorded: Sep 22 2016 62 mins
    Adam Butler, CFA, CAIA
    According to research from Morningstar and the Investment Company Institute, many unskilled investors are abandoning active stock selection in favor of active factor, sector, and asset allocation. But these investors are making the same mistakes in a different domain. In this environment, skilled investors have a greater opportunity to profit from active asset allocation than traditional security selection.

    This prompts these questions: What methods are most effective at sorting winners from losers across asset classes? Are the observable effects of factors such as value and momentum even stronger across asset classes than at the individual security level? If so, what is the best way to harness these multi-asset factor strategies while maximizing diversification to minimize portfolio risk?

    In this webinar, Adam provides an overview of active multi-asset "factor" strategies like Adaptive Asset Allocation. In particular, you will learn:

    •Why investors are abandoning active mutual funds in favor of index funds and ETFs;

    •Why poor index timing decisions have kept unskilled ETF investors from realizing strong returns from these products;

    •How skilled asset allocators are able to generate alpha by taking advantage of pricing anomalies created by unskilled ETF investors;

    •Why multi-asset ‘smart beta’ strategies are well positioned to harvest large excess returns from this pool; and

    •How to use a multi-asset factor strategy, with methods adopted from Modern Portfolio Theory, to create dynamic global portfolios that can thrive in good times and bad.

    Adam will answer attendees’ questions during the webinar and will be available to continue the discussion on APViewpoint.

  • The Next Generation of ESG Investing Recorded: Sep 13 2016 60 mins
    Abdur Nimeri
    Many investors are asking advisors for environmental, social and governance (ESG) investing solutions that reflect their moral and political values. The problem is that most of these strategies are flawed in two important ways:

    1.Historically there have been seven distinct approaches to ESG investing, implemented in products characterized by inadequate diversification and skewed returns.
    2.ESG index providers rely on key performance indicators (KPIs)—quantitative and qualitative metrics that demonstrate a company’s business effectiveness—based on public regulatory filings that often don’t provide enough information to enable advisors to make informed ESG recommendations.

    Our “integration approach” to ESG investing seeks to resolve these flaws.. It leverages innovations in data science to enable asset managers to develop and apply systematic investment strategies that evaluate each company’s E, S and G indicators to identify KPIs that significantly impact risk/return with strong predictability. Integrating ESG-related KPIs into portfolio analysis and risk management methodologies allows advisors to recommend more diversified ESG core equity investment solutions to clients. In this webinar, advisors will learn:

    •The seven historically distinct approaches to ESG investing;
    •How ESG attributes impact a corporation’s reputation, value and long-term business performance;
    •How data science is making it easier to identify KPIs that accurately measure the impact of ESG policies on investment performance;
    •How a diversified portfolio should balance risk and return characteristics of multiple KPIs in all three sleeves of ESG; and
    •How multi-category ESG tilts can potentially reduce risk and amplify long-term returns.

    Abdur will answer attendees’ questions during the webinar and will be available to continue the discussion on APViewpoint.

  • Tax Evasion, the Panama Papers and Global Wealth Management Recorded: Aug 30 2016 61 mins
    Dan diBartolomeo
    The release of the so-called “Panama Papers” has raised the veil on the secretive tax evasion practices of some wealthy investors and generated substantial public outrage aimed at financial firms and high profile clients connected with these schemes.

    But are all strategies for minimizing taxes unethical or illegal? In this presentation, Dan will take advisors on a tour of the mysterious world of offshore corporations and hedge funds and their uses as tax-management tools. You will learn:

    -How high tax rates, institutional corruption and a lack of regulatory oversight have enabled many of these overseas tax shelters to form and thrive;
    -Which of these entities can be used for legitimate tax purposes;
    -Why wealthy investors who transfer assets to offshore corporations assume a high level of risk and IRS scrutiny; and
    -How you can legally address your wealthy clients’ tax-management priorities using U.S.-based investment strategies and products.

  • Risk Parity: The Antidote for Unbalanced Portfolios Recorded: Aug 11 2016 62 mins
    Adam Butler, CFA, CAIA CEO, ReSolve Asset Management
    The traditional 60/40 balanced portfolio is actually "unbalanced" because it is designed to flourish in a limited spectrum of economic environments characterized by growth, benign inflation, and abundant liquidity conditions. Worse, the high level of equity volatility mostly dilutes the moderating benefits of bonds.

    Risk parity portfolios address this imbalance. Complementing traditional U.S. equity and bond positions with alternative asset classes, and with an appropriate balance of risks, can help a portfolio thrive across a wide variety of market environments. In this third part of his four-part webinar series, Adam Butler will reveal:

    -Why constructing portfolios on the basis of long-term capital market expectations is a fool's errand;

    -Why a broadly diversified and properly balanced risk parity portfolio encompassing a wide range of asset classes is better positioned to balance risks and perform well under most realistic economic environments;

    -How dynamic estimates of risks and correlations can eliminate the need for long-term forecasts; and

    -How multi-asset factor tilts can address many of the most common concerns about risk parity portfolios.

    Adam will answer attendees' questions during the webinar and will be available to continue the discussion on APViewpoint.
