  • Asset Allocation: label/category diversification vs. risk/functional diversification
  • Risk Parity vs. Traditional Asset Allocation
  • What Portable Alpha
  • Synthetically creating your own “bond” with risk factors not directly tied to spreads and rates
  • Risk Mitigating Strategies (RMS)
  • Long Volatility – 1st Responders
  • Trend Following – 2nd Responders
  • Beta Neutral and Uncorrelated (Diversifiers)
  • Behavioral/psychological biases of investors
  • Why “hedge funds” are not an asset class and many “hedge fund” programs tend not to withstand the test of time
  • What is risk?
  • Generalists vs. Specialists
  • How LDI portfolios could be improved
  • Evolution of dissecting returns and understanding factor risks, what is alpha vs. beta
  • How can investment managers and investors become better aligned?
