    The Private Equity of Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

    The Private Equity of Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

    As we continue to navigate challenging market dynamics including rising inflation, difficult labor markets, elevated valuations and ongoing geopolitical tensions, investors are considering how to fill their expected return gap. Traditionally, Private Equity has offered important return potential and diversification benefits that help fill that gap which has allowed the asset class to grow dramatically over the last 30 years. But could we see that growth continue as markets take a downturn? In this episode of Disruptive Forces, Managing Director, Maura Reilly Kennedy, joins Anu Rajakumar to tell us more about the evolution of private equity, its unique characteristics and diversification benefits, additionally highlighting scenarios where private markets can differ from public, making it an attractive component of portfolio construction.

    Forgo FOMO: Growth Investing for the Long Term 

    Forgo FOMO: Growth Investing for the Long Term 

    In light of the swings in today’s market environment, investors are shifting their asset allocation decisions to accommodate its volatility. As they grapple with what the options are, we look to growth stocks, which we believe have the potential to outperform the overall market over time though may require a higher risk tolerance. What could be the opportunity set here in what some would call a risk-off environment? And how might investors address the concept of FOMO, or fear of missing out, when it comes to investing in growth companies? In this episode of Disruptive Forces, Jason Tauber, Portfolio Manager of growth equity strategies, sits down with Anu Rajakumar to explains his views on how the growth sector, despite today’s volatile market backdrop, may still have its time to shine down the line.

    The Paradigm of Purpose and Profit

    As more companies across the business ecosystem face increased scrutiny on Environmental, Social, and Governance issues, the more they will need to respond. What has changed in the world that makes thinking about sustainability so critical to companies and investors?

And what is the role of investors in terms of measuring outcomes and engaging with companies? In this special episode of Disruptive Forces, Jonathan Bailey, Head of ESG Investing, sits down with George Serafeim, the Charles M. Williams Professor of Business Administration at Harvard Business School, and member of our ESG Advisory Council, to share more about this topic from his upcoming book, Purpose and Profit: How Business Can Lift Up the World.

    Mythbusting Crypto Investing

    Mythbusting Crypto Investing

     
    Cryptocurrency, or crypto, the so-called “wild west” of Wall Street, has been raising eyebrows for quite some time now. Since 2013, there have been over 12,000 different types of coins generated, leaving many wondering what is actually reliable in this market. While some investors might be skeptical of its value, others find that it can be additive to an asset allocation mix despite its volatile nature—particularly in today’s market environment. But is there truth to the myths surrounding this investment space? In this episode of Disruptive Forces, Head of Specialty Finance, Peter Sterling, and Head of Options Investing, Derek Devens, CFA, come together with Anu Rajakumar to demystify some of the worries that investors may have on digital assets, and what possibilities may lie ahead for the asset class.

In this episode of Disruptive Forces, Robert Gephardt, CFA, Senior Energy Research Analyst, shares his thoughts with Anu Rajakumar on how the energy sector is managing amid the crisis in Europe, what other risks might be at play and how energy can keep “going and going” for the long-term.

Quality content from a top firm

I listen to a lot of podcasts on the app, including those by Motley fool, Morningstar, and others. This podcast is by far the most informative around topics that interest me in the word of investment. They’re not overly complicated and present sound ideas from a top investment firm.
