Is volatility risk?
After a long period without signifi cant market upheavals, investors might be forgiven for pushing volatility down their list of concerns. We think that would be a mistake. Low volatility can sometimes represent the calm before the storm. But even when the storm hits, we don’t think volatility is necessarily something to be feared. It can indicate danger, but it can also signal opportunity. What is crucial is that investors are able to determine which and have a plan ready so they can react appropriately.
