Volatility & structured


Key areas of expertise


  • Capital protected products
  • Flexible asset allocation strategies & volatility management
  • Model-driven global and european equity strategies
  • Equity arbitrage strategies


In durably volatile markets in which trends have been depleted, Seeyond’s investment philosophy is based on a strong conviction: it is more efficient to exploit market volatility to generate value rather than invest according to return forecasts that are sometimes inaccurate and often unstable. Seeyond’s teams thus use market variability and dispersion to generate performance and focus on risk management to construct portfolios tailored to a more complex environment.

Investment process and organisation

Structured management, flexible asset allocation, active volatility management, model-driven equity management and long/short equity – all the strategies proposed by Seeyond strive to provide solutions that combine performance generation with risk reduction.
These different strategies are implemented through an active approach in which investment decisions are both objectivised by models and risk-weighted.

For this purpose, Seeyond Investment division benefits from a dedicated quantitative research platform to support the investment teams in their day-to-day management.
