Can old methods handle a new challenge? An increase in volatility spikes, coupled with an unpredictable macro-economic environment set an uncertain and unchartered backdrop for Australian super funds as they continue to seek returns to meet members expectations.  As this new paradigm plays out, old ways to solve for de-risking portfolios may not stand the test of time.

In this webinar we will explore:

  • The changing nature of volatility: what is happening and why?
  • Why de-risking portfolios in the same “old” way may not achieve return objectives
  • New methods of low volatility investing
