Introducing the volatility managers

Volatility is back, and so are specialist “managed volatility” products to deal with it.

Summary: The traditional way for retirees to reduce portfolio volatility is to switch out of shares and into cash. But since returns on cash are so low, this becomes impractical. Another approach is to invest in “managed volatility” funds, which often use stock picking methods that focus on buying low volatility stocks.

Key take-out: Managed volatility funds could help retirees managed the risk in drawing down from their portfolio, maintaining exposure to higher yielding stocks compared to selling equities to invest in low-yielding cash.
