Title: Alternative Investments: Strategies For An Uncertain World
Speaker: Brian Johnson, CFA, Vice President AQR Capital Management
The investment choices available to advisors in the alternatives area has expanded dramatically in the wake of the global financial crisis of 2008-09. After the extremely volatile year of 2011, many advisors are looking for lower volatility solutions for their clients' investment portfolios, without sacrificing transparency and liquidity. Join Bryan Johnson of AQR Capital Management for some insight into the rapidly growing category of liquid alternative investments, and learn why these strategies might make sense for your clients' portfolios.
Bryan Johnson joined AQR Capital Management in 2009 and is a Vice President within the Client Strategies & Portfolio Solutions group. Based in California, Bryan is responsible for business development, relationship management, and client education with RIAs and other fee-based financial advisors in the Western U.S. In this role, he consults with and educates financial advisors on empirical capital market research, portfolio construction, and alternative investment strategies. He co-authored the white paper “Understanding Risk Parity” and has given several educational talks on risk parity and other alternative investment strategies for various CFA chapters. Before joining AQR, Bryan was a Regional Director in the RIA channel at Dimensional Fund Advisors. Prior to DFA, Bryan held management positions in international project management and business development in the technology industry. A CFA charterholder, Bryan earned an MBA from the Marshall School of Business at the University of Southern California and a B.S.E. with honors in Chemical Engineering from Arizona State University.
