When Rates Rise, it’s Time to Combine Low Volatility & Quality
When the market starts to whipsaw, investors historically have sought out low volatility strategies, allowing them to potentially protect against some downside while staying invested in the market. Yet we believe this time-tested factor strategy can become even more powerful when combined with a screen for quality.
In this upcoming webcast, join Northern Trust's FlexShares and VettaFi for a deep-dive on how to potentially protect against chaotic markets with quality, low-vol exposure in their core allocations.
Topics will include:
- Why low volatility strategies can be so powerful in troubled markets
- How to avoid unintended sector concentration and rate risk by screening for quality
- A look at one core investment strategy that keep investors invested while seeking to protect against market swings
