Opportunities Beyond a Precarious Path

    

Quality is the Compass

In the current environment of high levels of inflation and interest rate rises, we believe investors should consider equity investments that seek to provide a unique combination of structural growth potential, quality, stability and relative valuation support. Careful selection is key to finding equities that could be poised for outperformance.

   

Help Equity Investors Keep Their Course in Volatile Markets

Investors searching for ways to reduce portfolio risk in volatile markets could head in the wrong direction and sacrifice growth potential. When market noise rises, we believe in pursuing equity investments that seek to provide quality through structural growth potential, stability and relative valuation support. Careful selection is key to finding equities that could be poised for outperformance.

Is a recession coming – or not? Uncertain investment scenarios, such as the one we currently face, make a focus on quality even more important. Learn more about quality, which we believe can be an essential component in an equity portfolio.

Excluding the megacaps, stocks of the S&P 500 are now trading at their biggest discount since the early 2000’s, presenting a potentially opportunistic tailwind for active management.
