Financial markets including US and European equities saw record low volatility in 2017, with others including emerging market equities experiencing falls in volatility.

In 2018, we believe volatility will start to rise from its lows, with gradual monetary tightening by central banks likely to be a key driver.

While bullish on equities' outlook for 2018, we think there is a case for hedging to help protect prior profits in case our view is wrong and significant downside occurs.

We also explore the potential portfolio benefits from hedge fund strategies once volatility returns.
