Maximizing Your Risk-Adjusted Equity Returns

While investors want an efficient portfolio, and can obtain an efficient portfolio in principle, the reality is that many obstacles stand in the way of achieving this goal. Join our quantitative equity research team as they show you how to better target your investment objectives by selecting higher information ratio managers, rather than following more traditional approaches to risk management.

The team will discuss their latest research paper, Improving Active Risk Budgeting, which explores a common misconception of investors – the belief that overall equity portfolio risk is best managed by allocating the majority of the equity allocation to index strategies, while incorporating managers with a high level of active risk to generate outperformance. Our research found that in reality, such an approach often delivers inferior overall portfolio risk-adjusted returns.
