    Philip Lung

    Managing Director, Division Head - Mellon Capital

    BNY Mellon Investment Management

    • Since the great financial crisis, investors have been keen to flee the damaging effects of volatility. However, that hasn’t abated their need for growth
    • For now, many investors have gravitated towards absolute-return strategies that advertise zero tolerance for negative return periods. But that comes at a price
    • In contrast, a better approach might center on artfully managing long-term volatility (and tail risk) while positioning for growth-like returns
