Cambria Fund Profile Series – Cambria Tail Risk ETF (TAIL)

17 minutes

In today’s episode of the Cambria Fund Profile Series, Meb discusses the Cambria Tail Risk ETF (TAIL).

Meb walks through the S&P 500’s move from it’s all time high on February 14th 2020 to it’s recent low on March 23rd 2020 that resulted in a decline of 33.7% in just 20 days.

He poses the question: “Is there any way an investor might have been able to mitigate this decline in his or her portfolio?”

He then makes the case for the Cambria Tail Risk ETF (TAIL), a fund engineered to help guard against significant market drawdowns.

As the episode winds down, Meb poses this scenario:

“Is the stock market back on solid footing today? No one has a crystal ball. If I told you a year ago, that unemployment would jump from low single digits around 4% to over 15% today, that Fed interest rates would fall from 2.5% to near zero today, that gold would be up massively, stock volatility would be up, and oil would crash down over 50%, and yet, despite all of this, stocks are up. Would you believe me? Most would not.”

All this and more in this Cambria Fund Profile Series episode, featuring the Cambria Tail Risk ETF (TAIL).
