BOSTON, March 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Alpha Vee Solutions Ltd. released today the first of a 4-part series of white papers defining methods of managing, mitigating and risk control within passive Equity focused ETF investment models.
Executive Summary: Risk is an inherent part of our life. In the immortal words of President Theodore Roosevelt: "Risk is like fire: If controlled it will help you; if uncontrolled it will rise up and destroy you." In the world of investments, taking risks is a prerequisite for achieving returns, and controlling the risk is the key for a successful investment.
The first step of controlling the risk is to break it down to individual risk components. We examine and demonstrate the main components. We briefly describe some of the available possibilities to control them. Using the right system for controlling the risk can enhance the investment returns while minimizing the volatility for the investor.
Scope: Our main objective, is to focus on equity investments with a particular focus on using Smart Beta ETF's. Over the last 15 years, the Smart Beta ETF industry has grown from nearly null to about half a trillion USD. Consequently, we will target in this paper on the risk components which are relevant to indices used by this industry.
