The balancing act of managing equity risk

Institutional investors face a balancing act between two equally important needs: achieving robust long-term returns while avoiding the painful consequences of near-term drawdowns. The intense market volatility of the past few months highlights the difficulty in maintaining this balance, as most traditional portfolio hedging strategies failed to perform as expected.

Join us as Securian Asset Management risk mitigation professionals describe their work leading to a reliable solution for this dilemma. They'll discuss:

  • How equity volatility levels exhibit a persistent and reliable relationship with equity returns.
  • How a permanent strategic allocation to an equity stabilization strategy that utilizes the persistent volatility/return relationship can improve investors’ long-term risk/return ratios – even if implemented right after a market selloff.
