How to stay invested while seeking to protect yourself from risks in 2022
High stock market valuations. Low bond yields. Potentially rising interest rate. There are many challenges ahead in 2022, and investors will need to carefully position their portfolios to stay ahead of difficult market conditions. Defined-income ETFs can help investors maintain their exposure to the market while seeking to protect their portfolio against future risks.
In the next webcast, How to stay invested while seeking to protect yourself from risks in 2022, Innovator ETFs Co-Founder and CEO Bruce Bond and Vice President of Products and Research Graham Day will discuss how buffer ETFs can help investors stay fully invested in the markets until a ceiling, with built-in buffers to help manage downside risk.
For example, the June series includes S&P 500 Buffer Innovative ETF (BJUN), the ETF Innovator S&P 500 Power Buffer (PJUN), and the ETF Innovator S&P 500 Power Buffer (UJUN), which have a buffer of 9%, 15% and 30%, respectively.
The July series includes the S&P 500 Buffer Innovative ETF (CBOE: BJUL), the ETF Innovator S&P 500 Power Buffer (CBOE: PJUL), and the S&P 500 Ultra Buffer Innovative ETF (CBOE: UJUL).
The Defined Income ETF Series are designed to provide investors with the flexibility to buy stocks as close as possible to the start of their respective earnings periods. Investors can also buy shares of a previously listed defined-earnings ETF for the entire earnings period and get a current set of defined earnings parameters.
Knowing the return profile before investing can significantly reduce the uncertainty associated with buying stocks, which are typically among the most volatile asset classes in many investors’ portfolios. Innovative Defined Income ETFs represent a new type of strategy that can be an effective tool for investors to strike a balance between growth and risk mitigation in portfolios in a systematic and disciplined manner.
