Changes are Coming in 2022. Don’t Stick with Bad Benchmarks

Broad benchmarks, such as the Bloomberg U.S. Aggregate Bond Index (the “Agg”) and the Russell 1000 Index, have helped guide investors through a prolonged bull market. However, as the Federal Reserve eyes multiple interest rate hikes this year, funds tracking the "Agg" now expose investors to more risks and limited returns and finding the right opportunities in equity doesn’t appear any easier.

In this upcoming webcast, join Columbia Threadneedle Investments and ETF Trends for a closer look at the shortcomings of traditional benchmarks in today’s shifting environment, and a focus on alternative equity and fixed income strategies that can help financial advisors better adapt their clients' portfolio for the challenges of tomorrow.
