As part of Societe Generale's series of Meet the Experts presentations, Heng Du and Yann Pernet discuss hybrid solutions.
Generating income while preserving capital is key for many investors, yet it is increasingly difficult to achieve in today’s environment of low rates and tight credit spreads. One way to reach for yield is to capture risk premia across several asset classes. This is the concept of hybrids – harvesting returns wherever there is value. Thanks to hybrid diversification, you can enhance your returns while maintaining an acceptable credit and risk profile. As a multi-award-winning cross-asset platform, Societe Generale is proud to have been a pioneer in this market. Combining elements as different as equities, rates, foreign exchange and credit was just a dream not so long ago. Today, Societe Generale delivers solutions tied to three asset classes together on a regular basis.
