Why is Absolute Return so Absolutely Painful?

With equity markets near all-time highs and interest rates near all-time lows, consensus return forecasts have dwindled and many institutional investors have turned to absolute return strategies to address their challenges. And while the potential of low correlation and downside protection from absolute return is great, finding the right strategy is challenging. Read more to learn how you can potentially use equities for absolute return results.


How Intech Uses Artificial Intelligence

Many of the popular techniques in Artificial Intelligence (AI) have been used in real-life applications since the 1980s, including machine-learning (ML) techniques. As a quantitative manager, it is only natural to employ AI as a research tool, alongside more traditional quantitative methodologies. Read more to discover how AI differs from ML and why this distinction is important.


How to Implement Variable Beta Strategies

Risk and return assumptions are a key input to strategic asset allocation models, but these assumptions are often static or at least very slow-moving over time, leaving investors with unchecked downside risk at times. Learn how variable beta strategies can allow for a more dynamic portfolio – one that may reduce long-term risk without changing an allocation’s return profile.


Volatility as a Reliable Alpha Source

Intech harnesses natural stock-price volatility to generate an excess return above the benchmark – without forecasting returns. We find that a stock’s price volatility is more persistent than its return, making volatility a reliable input for portfolio construction. How can you use this volatility to capture alpha? Read more to find out.


Does Today’s Volatility Offer You a Signpost?

Volatility has made headlines in the last few months. Investors often think about volatility as something bad – a foe that needs to be controlled, managed or avoided. However, when viewed correctly, volatility can actually serve as an important resource to help strengthen portfolio resilience by signaling when to reduce risk and when to embrace it. Read on to learn how to use volatility to your advantage.
