ON-DEMAND WEBCAST: A Shifting Perspective - Understanding Fat Tail Risk and Upsides in Your Portfolio

As risk management continues to become a more critical piece of the investment decision making process, the reliability and predictability of risk estimates also becomes increasingly important. This requires capturing market dynamics, such as excessive probability of extreme events, dependencies in the occurrence of large returns across markets, volatility clustering, and asymmetry of the assets’ return distribution.

With the newly released FactSet Multi-Asset Class (MAC) Fat-Tailed Risk Model, we take the next step toward answering the need for predictable risk analytics. See how to identify possible accumulation of tail risk concentration in a portfolio, and apply advanced risk budgeting approaches in order to improve risk-return profiles of your multi-asset class funds. 

This webcast will provide:

  • An outlook on the importance of innovation and what this means in the world of risk analysis
  • An introduction to FactSet’s new MAC Fat-Tailed Risk Model through real-world case studies
  • A walk-through of how this new approach improves Value-at-Risk (VaR) back-testing results on the risk factor, asset, and portfolio level
