Get Diversified with an Active, True Value Manager
We believe 2022 will be markedly different than last year—characterized by high asset valuations, inflation, rising rates, increasing volatility and less accommodative Fed policy. While traditional catalysts for value still exist, investing with a true value manager will be critical to help portfolios stay diversified.

Are Your Clients Overexposed to Growth?
Following the multiyear dominance of growth stocks, and with large blend and growth assets outnumbering value by almost 5:1,1 it's not surprising that individual portfolios may have become overexposed to the large cap growth names that are heavily concentrated in both the S&P 500 and Russell 1000 Growth indexes. This may leave investors' portfolios less diversified than previously thought.
