When: Wednesday, July 31, 2019
10:00am – 10:30am EST

Equity markets in the US are at or near all-time highs. Unemployment is the lowest it has been over the last 50 years. Core inflation, as measured by CPI, is under the Federal Reserve’s 2% target. Somehow in this seemingly rosy market, the Fed is worried enough that, in the view of many economists, the only question is not if it will cut rates, but rather by how much and how quickly. What on earth is going on?


In this webinar, Nancy Davis, CIO of Quadratic Capital and renowned options and derivative trading expert, will discuss our current economic environment, critical factors generating today’s unprecedented levels of uncertainty, and ways to potentially benefit from volatility in the yield curve.


  • Nancy Davis introduction and overview of Quadratic Capital
  • Our current economic environment and what a highly unusual “inverted” yield curve could mean for investors in the coming months
  • Three potential outcomes from Federal Reserve policies
  • Overview of The Quadratic Interest Rate Volatility and Inflation Hedge ETF (IVOL) and how it may potentially benefit portfolios
