Applying the Next Wave of Index-Based Strategies

TUESDAY, MAY 7, 2019, 12:00 PM - 6:00 PM (PDT)

The evolution of indexing has yielded advancements that go far beyond market-cap-weighted beta. Join S&P DJI and leading industry experts to explore the innovative tools available to advisors today—from factors to sectors driven by disruptive technology to defined outcome strategies.

Featured speaker Sam Stovall, Chief Investment Strategist at CFRA, will share his equity market outlook and discuss opportunities at the market, sector, and industry level.

Topics will also include:

  • De-risking portfolios with tactical ETF strategies that can help investors participate in the upside while protecting the downside
  • Actionable innovations in core equity indexing that may offer greater flexibility, including better ways to slice and dice equities
  • Using single- and multi-factor strategies as portfolio diversifiers
  • Why advisors are increasingly turning their attention to ESG
