We’d all love to predict with pinpoint accuracy the timing of any future bouts of volatility and the impact it would have for schemes’ returns. In turbulent times, investing can be like an endless game of ‘whack-a-mole’ – as one risk is removed, another can come to light. While fortune-telling might not yet be an exact science, there are still a number of methods defined benefit schemes can employ to manage their risk.
In this week’s episode, we look at how aligning your asset strategy to your long-term goals, rather than short-term market cycles, can help provide some portfolio protection. The team also discuss the benefits of using natural cashflows to meet the need for income which avoids the risk of selling assets in stressed conditions.
