Consider A Temporary Portfolio Hedge With A Volatility ETN

Consider A Temporary Portfolio Hedge With A Volatility ETN

Volatility ETNs can serve as tools to protect assets that you already have in your portfolio.

In most instances, the more exposure one had to¬†non-dollar denominated debt or equity, the more serious the setback. Not¬†to be deterred, however,¬†many financial¬†analysts and money managers are¬†putting the current calendar year on the back burner.¬†Instead, they’re beginning to compile their 2012 picks.
