The Parametric Defensive Equity (DE) Strategy offers liquid access to an alternative risk premia that is uncorrelated with traditional asset classes while helping diversify overall portfolio risk. It seeks to structurally reduce equity market risk, while adding a relatively uncorrelated risk premium to enhance returns. It is expected that the tradeoff between equity market risk, which the DE seeks to structurally reduce, and the volatility risk premium (VRP) seek to provide a smoother ride over the long term and more predictable outcomes. In addition, the DE seeks to reduce the magnitude of drawdowns and to recover faster from stress events.
