Why Traditional Strategies are Failing?

Barry Allan

“The Great Inflation”, as the negative market events of 2022 are now being called, has wreaked havoc on traditional portfolio allocations. Investors are increasingly looking for ways to fortify their portfolios from further market volatility.

But with volatility impacting equity markets and rising interest rates hampering fixed income, where can investors turn to ensure their portfolio is prepared for the next market cycle? Liquid Alternative ETFs are one option for building diversification outside the confines of equity and fixed-income markets and can offer exposure to other in-demand asset classes, including global strategies and commodities.

Watch our Liquid Alternatives panel discussion, featuring Horizons ETFs’ Research Analyst Brooke Thackray, whose seasonal investing expertise and strategies have guided the Horizons Seasonal Rotation ETF (HAC); Barry Allan, Founder, and CEO at DMAT Capital Management, who is part of the team managing the Horizons Tactical Absolute Return Bond ETF (HARB); as well as Richard Laterman, Portfolio Manager at ReSolve Asset Management Global, who is part of the team managing the Horizons ReSolve Adaptive Asset Allocation ETF (HRAA).

Key Topics:

  • 2022 Is Why You Own Alts
  • Could we see a classic bull market recovery in 2023?
  • What does a truly diversified portfolio look like?
  • What are the asset classes that investors are overlooking right now?
