Active Resilience

Actively managed, resilient strategies for long-term investors

Every day, we make hundreds of decisions on behalf of our clients. We actively decide what risks to take—and which ones to avoid. Some of our strategies are designed to potentially hold up better in downturns. Others are built for resilience in rising markets. Actively managed, resilient strategies: That’s active resilience.

What Kind of Active Resilience Is Right for You?

It depends. If you are willing to assume more risk in exchange for the potential of greater participation in rising markets, explore the options in the ‘Resilient Alpha’ tab. To potentially mitigate losses in a market downturn, explore the options in the 'Resilient Durability' tab.

"Resilient Durability" funds seek to weather down markets better than their benchmarks.

"Resilient Alpha" funds seek to outperform in rising markets. They generally have more aggressive risk profiles.
