Has Your Portfolio Been Stress Tested?

Stress Testing is about assessing the potential impact of a broad array of economic scenarios (e.g. oil crash, inflation, etc.) on your portfolio and other investments.

We use a tool called Hidden Levers to measure how oil prices impact Exxon, how home sales impact Lowe’s, and millions of similar relationships between the economy and investments. Hidden Levers creates what-if scenarios to model recessions and other economic events.

For example: What if oil hits $20/barrel; what if the 2008 Recession happens again? In a stress test, we use the relationship between an investment and an economic indicator to project possible performance. For instance: if Exxon usually falls 3% when oil falls 10%, then Exxon would lose 15% if oil fell 50%.

Watch this short video to understand how we can use Hidden Levers to show you those economic factors which could have the biggest impact, positive or negative, on your portoflio.
