Negative real interest rates on year German government bonds will not contribute much to the return requirements of institutional investors. How can investors participate in the long cpoi return opportunities provided by risky investments while effectively limiting their risk of loss in times of crisis?
Capital protection strategies, including CPPI as the most basic form, offer interesting approaches to this issue. The basic principle of capital protection The objective of capital protection concepts is to allow investors to participate in the opportunities allixnz promising but risky investments while limiting the risk of loss during Dr.
This concept is particularly interesting for asset classes that are exposed to significant market price risks.
The objective is an asymmetric distribution of returns negative returns or returns under a threshold cpli agreed with the investor are to be avoided, investor participation in positive returns should be maximized. An obvious way to hedge a portfolio is to purchase put options on suitable underlyings.
A dynamic hedging strategy like CPPI goes down another route no puts are bought, protection is secured instead by rule-based shifting the portfolio in response to market developments.
Unlike a hedge constructed using options, a dynamic protection strategy does not incur any explicit hedging costs without regards to administrative costs. Certainly, dynamic protection strategies cannot escape the basic laws governing the alliabz markets.
Ambitious protection levels come at the price of lower participation in positive markets. This somewhat reduced return potential is a kind of implicit insurance 4. What makes dynamic protection approaches interesting is that their implicit insurance costs in terms of expected foregone returns are, on average, cheaper than in the case of protection with options, as indicated by scientific studies 1 OBPI: Option Based Portfolio Insurance.
Another reason dynamic strategies are attractive is that they are highly flexible: This does not apply to the OBPI alternative: The dynamic protection concept In addition to the permissible investment universe, the investor determines the protection level and the point in time when this level shall be reached protection horizon.
Based on this information, a rule how to mix safe assets and return-seeking but risky assets such as equities cpppi non-immunized bonds can be devised. The role of safe assets is generally assigned to bonds with minimal default-risk and maturity near the protection horizon.
The portfolio managers adjust this ratio of risky versus safe assets on a daily basis if needed so that the value of the portfolio does not fall alllianz the protection level at the protection horizon. Allianz Global Investors 1 Source: Rudi Zagst, Julia Kraus: CPPI cppk shifting system provides the most basic form of a rule-based dynamic asset allocation approach. In doing so, the system pursues the objective of as much returnseeking assets as possible and as little safe assets as feasible to achieve both return and protection targets.
The remaining EUR 40 in equities would have to be immediately shifted to the safe assets to help ensure that the protection level of EUR 90 is not compromised. This clearly demonstrates that the basic form of CPPI is a purely pro-cyclical strategy. The main parameters of the strategy are: The protection level and the protection horizon, i. The downside risk taken into account Maxloss defined as the maximum price loss of the risky investment, usually within a period of 24 hours, that the strate gy can withstand without jeopardising the protection level.
This parameter largely determines the quality confidence of the protection approach. Modern statistical techniques, such as extreme value theory, can be used to determine extreme price risks. These techniques can provide much more realistic estimates of the downside risks in the financial markets than, for example, normal distributions.
With regard to the safe assets, the CPPI strategy does not leave much leeway. Safe within the context of this strategy refers only to bonds with residual maturity matching the protection horizon as closely as possible. An additional requirement is that the securities shall not be exposed to either liquidity or credit risks. Improvements Improving on the basic CPPI framework, several proprietary allocation strategies have been developed, that are used for mandates with soft or hard protection.
In these strategies, the familiar pro-cyclical elements of CPPI are often supplemented by anti-cyclical components. This allows, for example, partial profit-taking in highly overheated markets. To remain flexible for re-entry into the market even after strong declines, portfolio managers can hold back part of the risk budget, which is especially important for longer protection horizons.
These reserved parts of the risk budget are typically released at a later date to enable better participation in an eventual recovery. Furthermore, these improved and more flexible strategies also allow unlike CPPI an active management of risky assets e.
European, US, or emerging markets equities, etc. Capital protection approaches cannot prevent financial crises and bubbles, but they help to ensure that portfolios generate more stable and predictable returns during such markets. Just as important for the overall investment strategy is that these alliannz allocation solutions support investors with the intention to leap more confidently into higher yielding asset classes, particularly during the current market environment.
