Fidelity On Air - Managing equity risk in volatile times

Recognising the need for Australian investors to manage risk when markets are volatile, Fidelity has launched a global low volatility equity fund.

Join our live online panel as they discuss the case for active investing in low volatility equities. Hear from:

With more than 8 years managing low volatility portfolios for Fidelity Institutional Asset Management (FIAM), Ben has a wealth of experience in this strategy and the benefits it can bring to client portfolios. Anthony and Richard will discuss the unique risks facing advisers building portfolios for retiree clients and provide real examples which display the upside to managing downside risk.
