Low volatility strategies are sometimes seen as a proxy for bonds in low interest rate environments. But what happens when interest rates start to rise? Ernesto Ramos, Ph.D., Head of Equities U.S., BMO Global Asset Management explains why investors should consider both interest rate risk and valuation risk when considering low volatility equity as a suitable replacement for yield. Ernesto also explains BMO Global Asset Management’s actively managed approach and why we prefer stocks with a low sensitivity to interest rate movements.
