Navigating Stormy Waters: the Return of Volatility and How to Harness it

Volatility is one of the few things we can be sure of in stock markets, and it certainly seems to be back with a vengeance since October of last year. The fact that stock prices and markets move around is a given, but interpreting the fundamental macro or micro-economic drivers of that volatility is more challenging.

But is this really necessary? And indeed, is volatility something to be feared, to be eradicated wherever possible? Since volatility is itself volatile, should we always try to hide from it or are there times we can harness it as a useful indicator and a source of return? Can portfolios that adapt their risk exposure based on current volatility in the market be more efficient than simply allocating between low volatility and core equity strategies?

Intech has over 30 years’ experience in understanding and making use of volatility to build equity portfolios with a variety of different risk and return characteristics. This session will focus on:

  • Understanding the relationship between volatility and market drawdowns
  • The behaviour of markets in different volatility regimes
  • Building portfolios that vary their beta in a timely fashion to these changing regimes without timing the market
