Asset Allocation Strategies

Feb­ru­ary 17th, 2017|Com­ments Off on Asset Allo­ca­tion Strate­gies

By def­i­n­i­tion, sys­tem­at­ic risk can­not be diver­si­fied away. There­fore, at Swan, we believe if you can’t diver­si­fy away sys­tem­at­ic risk, you must hedge it away. The goal of this study is to show how hedged equi­ty, through an invest­ment vehi­cle such as the Defined Risk Strat­e­gy, can be supe­ri­or to tra­di­tion­al asset allo­ca­tion or help enhance it.

As such, investors may not real­ize that striv­ing for mar­ket returns might not be in their best inter­ests over time. How­ev­er, nar­row­ing their dis­tri­b­u­tion of returns is!
