The macroeconomy has dominated financial news for much of 2021, driven at least partly by the specter of rising inflation and corresponding back-up in long-term interest rates. But building macroeconomic risk models to quantify, and perhaps mitigate the impact is a daunting and sometimes unproductive pursuit.
Qontigo’s Macroeconomic Projection Model offers a unique way to identify an index or a portfolio’s exposures to macroeconomic factors, while maintaining the structure and benefits of a more traditional fundamental equity factor risk model. In this webinar we will discuss the benefits of this approach, which allow the user to see a traditional risk forecast, while at the same time gaining a better understanding of how these and other kinds of economic changes may have impacted returns, along with how dampening the exposures may help in the future.
