Overview and Applications
Intech® defensive equity strategies seek upside equity market participation with downside protection. We construct these strategies without dependency on a low-volatility anomaly or factor; instead, we focus on low-volatility outcomes. Our clients use these strategies to address a wide range of needs.

We employ one process across four investment platforms, including our defensive equity platform. Platforms differ by risk focus – active risk vs. total risk. Platform strategies differ by benchmark and risk budget.
