Geopolitical risk has dominated the headlines in recent weeks, and there remains much uncertainty that diplomacy can resolve the current stand-off between Russia and the West. Volatility remains elevated, as global equity markets continue to whipsaw with sharp daily swings, in response to rolling headlines. Investors have had to grapple with this uncertainty, which has been combined with a hawkish tone from the Federal Reserve, amid expectations of a 50 basis point hike in rates at the March meeting.How can we navigate these uncertain times?

Join Gareth Ryan, Founder & Managing Director, as he discusses how investors can manage risk through exchange-traded options. Gareth will discuss the current impact on equity portfolios and how we can prepare for a deeper sell-off in the near-term. He will look at the use of short-dated weekly options and to provide sufficient downside hedging with index options. In addition, Gareth will look at how to capitalise through long volatility strategies.This will be an interactive event, with a Q&A session at the end.
