ETF Trends publisher Tom Lydon spoke with Salvatore Bruno, IndexIQ Executive VP & Chief Investment Officer, at Inside ETFs conference that ran Jan. 22-25, 2017.
Bruno discussed its investing strategy to apply a low volatility concept to high-yield corporate bonds.
How to Survive Significant 2017 Hiccups & Spikes in Volatility
The market surprised just about everyone post election, and while the Dow is continuing to soar, advisors should be prepared for what’s coming in the New Year.
“At IndexIQ, we don’t see any major disruptions in market growth, but we are anticipating some significant spikes in volatility and other hiccups throughout 2017—which means advisors should prepare their portfolios accordingly,” says Sal Bruno, CIO at IndexIQ. “There’s the fear that investors will fall into the old trap of ‘buying the rumor, and selling the news,’ which creates artificial spikes and inevitable losses.”
