With whipsawing volatility now seemingly an established feature of equity markets, plan sponsors realize that they need to find ways to protect their portfolios from these often negative effects. In order to build resilient equity portfolios that outperform while taking less risk than traditional methods of equity investing, investment managers are adopting a range of low volatility equity strategies that suit a range of risk tolerances. Low volatility investing offers pension investors a number of advantages over other solutions aimed at boosting returns. Unlike alternative investments, these portfolios are highly liquid, while still providing lower risk and lower volatility. Our experts will discuss the following issues:

  • Introduction and implementation of low volatility equity
  • Why low volatility wins: history, explanations and the future of low volatility
  • Understanding the low volatility anomaly
  • Low volatility strategies in turbulent markets
  • Living with a defensive equity strategy

Additionally, you will have the opportunity to address your own questions regarding low volatility investing to our panel of experts.
