Low-risk investing in the Covid-19 era: How have Conservative Equities fared?
09-07-2020 | Productwebinar
The coronavirus pandemic and the lockdowns used to contain it led to massive stock return dispersion in 2020. There were clear lockdown winners and losers, with stocks badly affected by the loss of trade, and others benefiting. With the worst seemingly over, attention turned to whether there would be a second wave.
Portfolio managers Jan Sytze Mosselaar and Pim van Vliet shed some light on how their Conservative Equities strategy performed in this environment. They compare the initial March sell-off with prior periods of turbulence, and give their current outlook for quant strategies, particularly with a second wave of infections meaning a new round of action.
