The S&P 500 Managed Risk 2.0 Index is designed to simulate a downside-protected portfolio that utilizes a framework that includes a targeted volatility and a synthetic option overlay to hedge the portfolio’s downside risk. The framework allocates the index weights between the equity and reserve asset and then the volatility of the combined allocation is hedged using a synthetic put option. This framework provides for lower drawdowns and a stable volatility profile for the index while allowing for a higher participation in the upside of the components.
