You don't hear "diversification" and "long volatility" often in the same sentence. Yet, their pairing is exactly what Jason Buck, CIO of Mutiny Fund, advocates as essential for all investors seeking to add long volatility exposure to their portfolios. Alongside Hari Krishnan, fund manager at Doherty Advisors, Buck advocates for an "ensemble" approach to anti-fragility. Buck and Krishnan rigorously examine the benefits of different long vol strategies, such as options, shorting indices, and relative value trades on the VIX. Krishnan explains his quantitative framework for evaluating options, and gives in-depth option trading insights based on their tenor and "moneyness." Buck and Krishnan discuss how a diversified approach to long volatility can heighten the benefits of long vol exposure, especially during "Minsky Moments" such as coronavirus pandemic markets have been experiencing since earlier this year.
