Navigate Through Risk with Passive and Active Approaches to Investment

Indexed funds have suffered big losses through the recent market rout, yet so too have many active investment strategies. How investors should respond in the short and long term, can vary depending on many factors. Build your blueprint to: 

  • What does the data show on market and hedge fund contributions and returns 
  • Use the current volatility to map your hedging strategies 
  • Gauge the market decline based on various scenarios – and how to react to it 
  • Is passive still viable and should you stay the course 
  • Are active ETFs performing betterbetter than Active Management?   THAN WHAT? 
  • Find a balance that can reduce risk yet not sacrifice returns 

Create new opportunities to negotiate the market risks through passive and active approaches
