Navigating market uncertainty, with factors & ESG

Presented by

Michael Hunstad, Ph.D., head of quantitative strategies and Valeria Dinershteyn, EMEA senior sustainability specialist

About this talk

As market volatility, geopolitical risks and economic uncertainty continue to shake global markets, it’s critical for institutional investors to re-evaluate their risk positioning. This means running portfolios as risk-efficient as possible and mitigating the “hidden risks” that commonly exist in their portfolios. Join our experts as they reveal a more precise approach to portfolio construction that leverages both targeted factor exposures and ESG research. Key discussion points include: • The factors that stand to benefit from the structural shifts in the global economy and increased market volatility. • How ESG research can complement factor exposure to increase excess return consistency and mitigate downside risk. • Implementing a risk-aware approach that minimizes unintended risk and seeks to maximize risk-adjusted returns.
