Webinar: Achieving Social Mandates

  • 2 Jul 2019
  • By CME Group

Many institutions, such as endowments and foundations, try to manage their portfolios with social mandates in mind. For example, they may want exposure to the S&P 500 but without the fossil fuel companies in the energy sector. This level of granularity can be achieved through Select Sector futures, which allow portfolio managers to overweight, underweight or eliminate exposure in the various sectors.

In this webinar, you will learn about:

  • Liquidity, volume and open interest growth in Select Sector futures
  • Margin considerations and hedge ratios
  • How an endowment can strip out exposure to the energy sector from their passive portfolio
