Whitepaper

Risk Planning for the Next Market Crisis

Market shocks can be fast, confusing and brutal. Attempting to react to them in real-time often results in suboptimal investment decisions. That’s where risk scenario planning is essential. In this analysis, we use the Solovis Risk Analytics application to simulate the impact of a market shock on a hypothetical public-plan portfolio and model the impact that an uptick in corporate bankruptcies might have on our portfolio.

Negative press implies that the risks associated with alternative investing should be a red flag for pensions, many of whom have been increasing capital allocated to this asset class. The reality is that pensions will continue to look to the private markets as an effective way to diversify portfolios and increase returns. This paper offers insight aimed at addressing the fundamental issues associated with private market investing.
