Ryan Reardon, investment strategist at State Street Global Advisors, SPDR ETFs, will share his views on how investors can use smart beta ETFs to maintain a long equity position with potential drawdown protection in a single trade at the upcoming Madrid Roundtable 2019 set to take place on the 8th of November.
According to SSGA, the biggest lesson of the past twelve months is to look past the short-term, political news cycle and consider where fundamentals might be evolving over the longer term. "Despite record low unemployment and contained inflation, central banks are still capitulating on normalising policy to address increasing concerns that the next recession is looming.
"As a result, European investors are increasingly seeking cost-effective tools to manage risk," the company added.
At the event, the investment strategist will discuss how smart beta ETFs provide investors the opportunity to introduce a defensive posture into a portfolio with a single trade - specifically via Quality Dividend and Low Volatility strategies.
