Program Id: 769667795

At a moment in financial history when performance of major U.S. stock indexes is heavily weighted by FAANGM, the objective of this class is to give practitioners a better understanding of industry sector performance and hidden risks to diversified portfolios.

At this class, the risk, return and statistical characteristics of the S&P 500 over the past 16 years are compared to the index's 11 component industry sectors.

In deconstructing the broad market into its component sectors, you'll also learn how to build portfolios for your clients using 11 low-expense sector ETFs, enabling:
• better performance than the typical S&P 500 index
• a "modular" S&P 500 that allows withdrawals from the best-performing sectors to manage risk
• portfolios tailored to the needs and preferences of your clients
