Course description

Adapting to Market Volatility and VUCA

This half-day course is designed to teach financial professionals how to adapt to the new volatility regime, marked by VUCA conditions, harnessing a unique 3-step approach, based on resilience, divergent thinking & scenario planning.

Resilience is part of a markets & mind approach. Markets, in terms of an ‘all-weather’ investment process, with active market timing and risk management overlays. Mind, meaning a greater awareness of potential blind-spots, reduced behavioral bias and improved stress response management (SRM). Divergent thinking alludes to the market reality of probabilities, not certainties. Avoiding linear, one-way bets, while hedging out-liar black or white tail risks. Finally, scenario planning is primarily focused on exploring and positioning for multiple futures, while learning from past anomalies. History doesn’t repeat, but often rhymes.

VUCA is a globally recognised acronym meaning Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity & Ambiguity. This is a military term for mission critical decisions during “unknown unknowns” which are experienced in the “fog of war”. The military battlefield is proving a useful metaphor for our financial market landscape. 2022 was game changer, in terms of the rise of inflation, its impact on portfolio returns, notably the traditional 60/40 strategy and general elevated volatility regime. This is all amplified against the backdrop of late economic cycle, market fragility and ongoing socio-political unrest.
