Securitizing Equity Returns


  A QWAFAFEW discussion led by:


Keith Quinton

Income-oriented investors often buy equities directly or via equity mutual funds. This has been true for both the long-term but has been particularly pronounced during the post Financial Crisis low- or zero- interest rate policy period. Investors “forced” to buy equities for income may not be aware of nor prepared for the volatility their principal may experience. Simultaneously there has been quite good demand for bonds yielding historically low rates. At the other end of the spectrum investors are buying 2x and 3x levered products that do a poor job of tracking their underlying indices over the long term. By taking a diversified portfolio of stocks and issuing securities that are entitled to differing allocations of income and capital, it is possible to create investment opportunities that better suit the needs of the investors. Using the S&P 500 as an example, I will explore the components of return and how divvying them up works over time. I will discuss the theoretical underpinnings of the approach and the arbitrage relationship that exists. I will conclude with a historical perspective, implementation and other thoughts.
