We are pleased to introduce The Investment Intelligence Podcast, where experts discuss all things investing, from recent market developments, to strategy, sustainable investing, asset allocation, risk management and more.
Allianz Global Investors believes that active asset allocation aimed at capturing excess returns when markets rally and reducing risk during times of market stress can help deliver improved outcomes for investors.
For more than two decades, Allianz Global Investors’ Multi Asset Group has used an approach that combines a systematic assessment with the insights of fundamental analysis with the dual objective of mitigating risks and enhancing return potential. The Multi Asset team manages a wide range of investment strategies, including Global Tactical Asset Allocation, Risk Management Overlay, Target Date/Target Risk, Liability Driven Investments, Multi Asset Liquid Alternatives, Risk Parity and Tail Risk Hedging. In each case, Allianz Global Investors seeks to improve outcomes for its investors through a rigorous investment process and advanced risk-management methods.
While investors can approach 2021 with optimism that an effective Covid-19 vaccine will be available, the path of the economic recovery remains unclear. A broader toolkit of investments is needed – not just the regions, sectors and strategies that have recently done well.
In this episode, Tim Friederich, Head of risklab, discusses how to manage risk—especially tail risk—in light of the many black swans we have experienced in the past few decades and, more specifically, the ongoing Covid-19 crisis. He covers drivers of risk, how and when to implement tail risk-management programs, Modern Portfolio Theory, and much more.
