Why Investing on Volatility Markets ?

Simon Aninat, volatility portfolio manager at Seeyond, explains what volatilty investing can bring to investors’ asset allocation.


Key Highlights
  • Volatility is often associated with big swings in either direction. In that sense, volatility is more about speed of market movements and less about their direction.
  • Investors tend to rely on their capacity to time the market to anticipate market rallies or crashes. At Seeyond, we believe market timing is a myth, especially considering the recent violent corrections and rebounds.
  • Investors should try to build more resilient allocations and volatility strategies can be of great help to do so depending on the investors’ need.
