DOMINICE AT THE VOLATILITY AND TAIL RISK CONFERENCE IN LONDON

2018-04-12

Dominicé participated at the London Volatility and Tail Risk conference on April 12th 2018 where it shared its views on effective volatility strategies and solutions.

Since 2012, Volatility Investing events have provided a forum for leading volatility managers and institutional investors to share their thoughts on volatility as an asset class. This year’s volatility manager panels was accompanied by dynamic presentations and discussions about volatility in the crypto-currency market, as well as the role of artificial intelligence and big data in today’s investments. The event also included a debate by John Snow and Robert Fisk about Geopolitical Volatility.

Pierre de Saab, Partner at Dominicé, shared his views on the panel “In the current environment, should investors prioritize hedging or reduce exposure? Can volatility strategies offer a viable/cost effective solution?”  Alongside other prominent volatility managers, Pierre de Saab discussed the causes and implications of the peak in volatility that occurred on February 5th. He explained how the current transition to a new volatility regime posed a challenge to well-known passive volatility strategies, making active volatility management more relevant than ever.

Volatility Investing events support two outstanding charities: Beanstalk and Woman's Trust. This year Dominicé was pleased to contribute to Beanstalk, a charity that raises funds to provide one-to-one literacy support to primary school children.
