Overview and Applications
Intech absolute return strategies attempt to deliver positive returns over time with very low correlation and significant risk-reduction relative to your global equity allocation. Surprisingly, we provide this multi-asset like outcome using only equities, futures, and cash. Our clients use these strategies to address a wide range of needs:
- Offer your DC participants low-cost alternatives exposure with daily liquidity
- Tap high capacity, transparent alternatives for custom glide-paths designs
- Access a liquid, equity-based alpha source while reducing equity correlation
- Diversify overall portfolio to reduce drawdowns and enhance return
- Avoid timing-dependent absolute return processes
We employ one process across Intech’s five investment platforms, including our absolute return platform. Platforms differ by risk-return objective – relative or absolute. Platform strategies differ by benchmark and/or risk budget.
