Research Paper

Those building portfolios for HNW and SMSF investors have used capital protection as a key service differentiator, providing the foundation for innovative strategies for early and mid life accumulators, and for pre- and post retirement planning for retirees. Some protected products have worked well, while many have failed to deliver. This research paper stress tests each form of capital protection and assesses the risks and benefits of each. It shows how to select and implement prudent protection for various investor risk profiles, and why this will be key to building portfolios using a core plus satellite approach.
