Beyond Growth vs Value: Finding Earnings Acceleration in a Slowing Economy

Wednesday, 03. May 2023, 15:30 - 16:10 UHR

Seminarraum 3


Speaker(s): Richard Adams

One of the legacies of Covid, and the policy responses designed to tackle its economic effects, has been unprecedented volatility in style factor performance. This has posed an important but difficult fund selection dilemma: Growth or Value?

New research by American Century shows that an Earnings Acceleration portfolio can offer a more stable and diversifying source of excess returns than traditional style-based investment approaches. The question for investors in 2023 is, given the many current market challenges, where can these excess returns be found?

Join Richard Adams, Senior Investment Director at American Century, to learn more about a non-traditional Earnings Acceleration approach to investing, and where investors might find accelerating companies in a slowing economic environment.
