Managing Expectations — Drawdown Scenarios and Swan DRS Performance Analysis

Do investors real­ly under­stand the math behind invest­ment returns? There are a lot of mis­con­cep­tions amongst investors as it relates to equi­ty invest­ment returns, hedged equi­ty returns, and the math behind them. The goal of this paper is to explain the 4 math­e­mat­i­cal prin­ci­ples the dri­ve invest­ment returns, demon­strate how a hedged equi­ty strat­e­gy can lever­age all 4 in the investor’s favor, and sup­port the usage of a hedged equi­ty approach over oth­er tra­di­tion­al equi­ty approach­es for long-term invest­ment growth.
