Managing Volatility in Today’s Markets

Despite return misonceptions, minimum volatility strategies could help reduce risk during market downturns.

  • Minimum volatility strategies seek to dampen the potentially negative effects of volatility on portfolios.
  • These strategies are also capable of generating returns in more normalized market environments.
  • Evidence suggests that market volatility could return to more normalized long-term averages – which means investors may want to consider what a min vol strategy could provide their portfolio.
All investing involves risk, including the risk of loss. No investment strategy or risk management technique can guarantee return or eliminate risk in all market environments.
