Attractive Equity and Balanced Alternatives

By iSectors Chief Investment Officer, Chuck Self on March 3, 2015

Given the volatility in the markets over the last ten years, it has been difficult to find strategies that performed consistently well on an absolute and risk-adjusted basis. There were many equity-benchmarked investments that performed well into the market highs on 2007 and then gave up all of the gains in the one and a half year bear market that followed. Other investments reduced or eliminated losses during the 2007-2009 market debacle only to underperform the record setting rise since then.
