Ryan Reardon, investment strategist at State Street Global Advisors, SPDR ETFs, will share his views on how blending smart beta ETFs to long equity positions has helped reduce drawdown risk and protect core equity holdings at InvestmentEurope's Madrid Roundtable 2019 set to take place on the 8th of November.
According to SSGA, European investors are increasingly seeking cost-effective tools to manage risk. "Throughout the year investors have incorporated the well-known SPDR Aristocrats range to secure a sustainable income stream, while minimising portfolio volatility," 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.
