VOLATILITY, AN ASSET CLASS AND AN EXPERTISE PER SE

Globe Seeyond

When it comes to volatility, it is important to differentiate between two essential notions. Volatility is a risk indicator for the investor. It is also a liquid asset class that can be invested.

At Seeyond, we have developed specific Volatility and Overlay expertise that aims to propose investment solutions on volatility as an asset class guided by the same philosophy: it is possible to exploit volatility behaviors through strategies that meet specific needs in terms of return:

  • Long Volatility : A strategy structurally buying volatility that aims to generate return during volatile market conditions
  • Volatility Risk Premium : Une stratégie structurellement vendeuse de volatilité dans le but de générer un rendement de long terme en captant la prime de risque liée à la volatilité
  • Overlay strategy : Tailor-made solutions, called overlay hedging, combining hedge against volatility and yield generation opportunity
