Alton and David preview ClearArc’s presentation topic: “The Correlation You Don’t Know About Could Crush You: Multi-Asset Strategies in Today’s Environment,” and discuss why it’s an important topic for insurers attending the Insurer Investment Forum.
Since the implementation of Quantitative Easing and now tightening, multi-asset class strategies have emerged as one of the most popular investment strategies. ClearArc’s CIO will discuss the advantages of these strategies, yet what investors should be mindful of with respect to asset class correlations when investing, as not all multi-asset class strategies are the same.
