The U.S. equity market is in its ninth year of a bull run and some investors are concerned that a correction is looming. While market conditions are generally favorable, there are some fundamental pressures that could impact volatility over the short term, such as rising rates in the U.S. We believe the best way to navigate a potentially tricky market is to take a bottom-up approach and invest in “quality” companies with consistent and resilient earnings growth.
In this interactive webinar, Matthew Benkendorf, Chief Investment Officer and Lead Portfolio Manager, discusses why an active, high quality approach to US equities can lead to competitive returns with lower risk than the index over a full market cycle.
