WHAT HAPPENS WHEN CORRELATIONS GO TO 1? Presentation by: D. Sykes Wilford wsykes@laudisi.com SPS Holdings

2
Modern Portfolio Theory and Correlations: Are they Synonymous? MPT ä Expected Returns ä Volatility in the errors of those expected returns ä Correlation in the errors of those expected returns Correlation ä In markets? ä In your errors in expected returns E (R)s? Key Question: What correlations matter?

3
SPS Holdings Correlations Converging Towards Unity Usually refers to market price correlations Implies that E (R)s are market returns May refer to manager style Average nor does it = 1 among managers, but In a crisis – what does this imply?

11
SPS Holdings Why the Sharp Difference? Long Only vs. Long/Short As average correlation goes from 0 to 1, the long/short strategy can take advantage of correlations to mitigate risk by shorting high correlation, low expected return positions to create Intended Diversification.

19
SPS Holdings Issues to Consider Long Only vs. Long/Short ä In the real world correlations are usually around.6 to.8 ä Zero correlation could not be a “temporary” phenomenon ä Large deviation in expected returns, given equivalent risk are usually very unusual at.9 correlation, but not necessarily at.6 –.7 correlation Intra-Market Class Correlations ä High correlations are often the norm ä Long/Short dominates

20
SPS Holdings Issues to Consider (Continued) Cross-Market Correlations ä Crisis management easier ä Crisis in one sector can creep into another – Yen on October

21
SPS Holdings Issues to Consider (Continued) Foreign Exchange is a good diversifier ä On average ä During a crisis ä Especially for Long Only Portfolios Diversifying Managers ä Average Correlations: don’t be fooled ä Crisis Correlations: stress the data Style Diversification Average vs. Crisis Correlations Long/Short
