Defensive Equity Strategies

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.

DB Asset-Liability Management

  • Maintain equity exposure and reduce or reallocate your risk budget
  • Increase equity exposure and maintain your risk budget
  • Increase liquidity by replacing the alternatives used to reduce volatility

DC Participation Rates and Outcomes

  • Encourages participants to stay in the market longer
  • Mitigates temptation for market timing
  • Nurtures more consistent contributions

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.
