The volatility of today's global markets has forced many investors to re-evaluate their investment approach and objectives. This discussion studies various portfolio applications, liquidity and trading strategies that seek to reduce downside risk while continuing to maintain performance and gain exposure to high growth areas. These strategies provide clients the ability to optimize risk-adjusted returns compared to full exposure to equity markets over longer periods.
