Global Fund Manager Aims For Equity-like Returns With Less Risk
NAPERVILLE, Ill., Sept. 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Calamos Investments, a premier global fund manager, today highlighted the benefits of its actively managed, low-volatility equity strategies for investors rattled by continued market volatility and a shaky economic recovery. These strategies are a meaningful alternative for investors who are afraid to be in the markets, but at the same time understand that meeting long-term savings goals most usually includes an equity allocation.
"We believe that many investors are concerned about investing in equities because of the roller coaster pattern of recent markets," said John P. Calamos, Sr., Chairman, CEO and Co-Chief Investment Officer of Calamos Advisors, LLC. "We also believe strongly that over the long term, well-constructed portfolios need to include an equity component to achieve the growth that investors require to meet their objectives. For more than 20 years, Calamos has utilized its expertise in growth stocks and convertible securities to actively create portfolios with risk-reward profiles appropriate for investors looking for a potentially smoother ride through uncertain equity markets."
In view of today's market challenges, low-volatility equity strategies offered by Calamos Investments provide an important alternative for equity-minded investors to consider. "In the current environment, a diversified portfolio's equity component must include strategies that have lower risk than a traditional pure-equity allocation. Our low-volatility equity strategies may be appropriate to be considered an important element of asset allocation for many investors' portfolios," said Calamos.
"The essence of a low-volatility equity strategy is to use time-tested risk management techniques which seek to provide downside protection in the equity markets," Calamos said. "Low-volatility equity strategies are designed to perform well in unstable environments. You do give up some upside potential, but it's important to keep the risk posture consistent and avoid making market-timing decisions," said Calamos.
