Differentiate Your S&P 500 Exposure: Manage Risk, Rotate Factors, Maximize Dividends, and Mitigate Downsides
WWhen people say they “check the market” they almost always mean “the S&P 500”, and for good reason. The S&P is the most popular and most invested index in the world. And yet, most investors acquire their exposure to the S&P 500 through the brute force instrument of traditional cap weighting. What if there was a better way? What if there were four?
In the next webcast, Differentiate Your S&P 500 Exposure: Manage Risk, Rotate Factors, Maximize Dividends, and Mitigate Downsides, Sean O’Hara, President of Pacer ETFs Distributors, will examine four different approaches to the S&P 500 that can help you manage your risk and potentially improve your returns.
Specifically, Pacer ETFs have offered a suite of structured earnings strategies, or the Pacer Swan SOS ETF series, including the SOS Conservative Pacer Swan ETF (PSCX), the Pacer Swan SOS Moderate ETF (PSMD), the Pacer Swan SOS Flex ETF (PSFD), and the Pacer Swan SOS Fund of Funds ETF (PSFF).
Pacer also recently expanded its lineup with the launch of October Additions to the Pacer Swan SOS ETF Group, including the Pacer Swan SOS Conservative (October) ETF (PSCQ), the ETF Pacer Swan SOS Moderate (October) (PSMO), and the ETF Pacer Swan SOS Flex (October) (PSFO). ETFs have a specific set of caps and buffers that have a target earnings duration of 12 months.
The Pacer Swan SOS ETF family was established in December 2020 and aims to give investors exposure to market growth up to a predetermined cap, and they simultaneously offer downside protection via buffers in the event of a downward cycle on the steps. Each ETF in the series has different performance strategies, giving investors the flexibility to invest with whatever risk parameters they want.
Pacer has partnered with Swan Global Management, LLC, which will act as a sub-advisor for the fund family to help make this happen. The Pacer Swan SOS ETF series seeks to match the returns of SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY) up to a predetermined cap on the upside while providing investors with downside protection to a predetermined point.
