BOSTON, April 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Executive Summary: Market risk is undoubtedly the most significant risk component for the equity investor. When the market falls, almost everything dives with it. When it rises, it pulls up some bad apples as well. The savvy investor should recognize this reality and act according to the famous quote by Warren Buffett: "Look at market fluctuations as your friend rather than your enemy". Naturally, this is easier said than done, but with recently introduced data driven tools, this daunting task can become more manageable and disciplined.
In this paper, we will examine some past market events and explore new possibilities available today for monitoring and acting on market behavior. Some of these tools are incorporated today by some leading ETF issuers in their new, innovative offerings, and thus are readily available for the general investors community.
Scope: This is a second article in a series which deals with controlling risks in equity investment with a focus on using Smart Beta, Multi factor ETFs. Over the past 15 years, the Smart Beta ETF industry has grown from nearly null to about half a trillion USD. The first article in the series reviewed four main risk components: Market, Sector, Currency and Stock Selection. In this article, we delve deeper into the market risk and show how data driven tools can provide some protection in extreme market situations.
