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.
Investors entering retirement face an array of unique challenges that collectively seem daunting, a real Retirement Conundrum. The importance of having intelligent, forward-thinking financial advisors directly solving this situation is more important than ever. One-click solutions like target date funds or robo-advisors will not solve the retirement conundrum. Following the same cookie-cutter, 60/40 solutions outlined in textbooks will not solve the retirement problem. At Swan, we believe that only bold, forward-thinking solutions that directly address the biggest risks to the retired baby boomers will solve the problem - like the legend of Alexander the Great cleaving the Gordian Knot.
