Equity markets have continued to climb upward, but bond markets continue to trend downward. Clients relying on the stability of what bonds have historically offered are likely to be disappointed with expected future returns. We believe clients need investment solutions that allow them to capture the upside of the equity market while managing the risk and limiting the volatility in their portfolios. Innovator’s Defined Outcome ETFs™ lineup seeks to allow clients to reduce downside risk through a built-in buffer and also maintain the upside potential of SPY or QQQ, to a cap.

What you will learn in this webinar is:

  • Discuss challenges to future returns, and why we should not expect historical bond returns going forward
  • What are Accelerated ETFs™?
  • How can Accelerated ETFs™ potentially help clients meet specific target returns?
  • Where do Accelerated ETFs™ fit in a client’s portfolio?'
