Description: Market volatility can be a powerful enemy of long-term performance. During times of heightened volatility, there is greater demand for broad market exposure with built-in control over market volatility. Join Tianyin Cheng, Director of Strategy and Volatility Indices at S&P Dow Jones Indices as she discusses how passive defensive strategies could help position portfolios to withstand market volatility, potentially help smoothing out equity market drawdowns and improve risk-adjusted returns. Recent market volatility puts these defensive strategies to the test.
This webinar session will cover:
- Design and characteristics of passive defensive indices that are broadly places into three categories: defensive equity, multi-asset, and volatility
- Long-term and recent performance of passive defensive indices
- How index-based risk management strategies can help align to client risk tolerance
- Indexed annuity solutions evolving to multi-asset income generators and risk mitigators
