As we face the worst inflation seen in 40 years, increasing uncertainty and volatility, and a possible bear market, investment managers need to find smarter ways to hedge their risk.
The current process most investment managers use to hedge equities hasn’t changed in 20+ years: buy a hedge basket from a third party or short a broad index. As an active manager, why spend so much time, effort, and research power on perfecting your long picks if you’re going to rely on a generic hedge?
