We believe that diversification alone is not enough to protect and grow clients' wealth over the long term. This white paper's goal is to show how hedged equity can be superior to traditional asset allocation or help enhance it. 

This study highlights 13 popular, well-known asset allocation strategies and illustrates how an allocation to a hedged equity strategy, like the Defined Risk Strategy, could offer favorable absolute and risk adjusted returns.
