UBS’ Fitzpatrick: Don’t be a victim of volatility

Dawn Fitzpatrick, global head of equities, multi asset and the O'Connor hedge fund business at UBS Asset Management, discusses how the nonprofessional can invest like a hedge fund with CNBC's Mike Santoli at the Delivering Alpha conference sponsored by CNBC and Institutional Investor.

"These markets are really prone to volatility, and you don't want to be a victim of volatility. You want to be taking advantage of that volatility," Fitzpatrick said in the exclusive interview for CNBC PRO.

"In other words, when the market goes down 8 percent at the start of the year, you want to be the buyer, not the panic seller," she added.

In this wide-ranging interview, Fitzpatrick also touches on:

  • How to construct solid portfolios.
  • Risk management principles.
  • Her outlook for the hedge fund industry.
  • Stock picking in a market driven by machine trading.
