Correction protection: The scorecard

We’ve been profiling a range of products designed to withstand a market downturn. Here’s how they fared in the recent sell-off.

Summary: Many new products designed to withstand market volatility outperformed base equity markets during the June downturn. Funds taking a modified stock picking approach fell less than their benchmarks, while one internally risk modified fund also outperformed. Multi asset products were the pick of the crop.

Key take-out: Sensible financial engineering can improve outcomes compared to more traditional methods, especially in uncertain times.

Key beneficiaries: General investors. Category: Strategy.
