Protecting your portfolio in a downmarket with Aziz Hamzaogullari
Aziz Hamzaogullari, Chief Investment Officer and founder of the Growth Equities Strategies team at Loomis Sayles talks about how to protect your portfolio in market crisis.
- The Loomis Sayles Growth Equity Strategies (GES) team is an active manager with a long-term, private equity approach to investing in both its large cap growth and global growth strategies.
- As a long-term investor, the GES team looks beyond the current environment and monitors its long-term quality-growth-valuation investment thesis through bottom-up analysis of a company’s fundamentals, not by the fluctuation of daily stock prices
- As with most of the alarming, unexpected, and damaging events of the last 100 years, no one can precisely predict the timing, duration, and magnitude of the Covid-19 scenario. The best preparation for inevitable but unforecastable events, according to the GES team, requires a consistent and disciplined ability to do the right thing every day - that is, to allocate capital to the most compelling reward-to-risk opportunities. Adhering to this discipline is what helps the Team manage downside risk.
