1. Innovative income solution powered by signals and data driven insights
The strategy uses cutting edge technology and processes to build a diversified portfolio of dividend paying global equities and identify stocks with the potential to deliver high income at lower risks.
2. The other side of volatility is higher income potential
The solution may take advantage of today’s volatile market environment to generate higher income premiums in its covered calls strategy.
Heightened market movements also create vast amount of data. Analysis on these real time data enables BlackRock to potentially cut through the noise to increase accuracy and forecasting power of stock and income return, and to capture potential capital growth when the global economy recovers.
Furthermore, to actively manage volatility, the strategy applies effective risk controls with the aim to achieve market upside while minimizing drawdowns.
3. Highly tactical model that focuses on the future
The new market regime requires agility and frequent tactical view changes based on current market developments, and less reliance on risk models calibrated to history. To reflect these movements timely, the strategy is rebalanced on a weekly basis, incorporating “real time” data into the signals that help the strategy stay nimble to navigate a rapidly changing market.
