Is there another investment path for portfolio managers to explore? Based on a recently released in-depth analysis of risk-adjusted returns over a 20-year period, perhaps there is. CFA Society Washington, DC has partnered with The Options Industry Council and Nasdaq as they host Dr. Edward Szado, author of a study titled “Endowment Risk Management and Return Enhancement with Listed Index and ETF Options,” for a wide-ranging discussion. During the session, Dr. Szado, Associate Professor of Finance with the Providence College School of Business, will elaborate on his research, which found that two straightforward option overlay strategies improved the risk profiles and simultaneously enhanced returns for endowments ranging in size from small to very large.
