Businesses that Stand the Test of Time: As stock markets cope with continued volatility and slowing global economic growth resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, investors face a significant challenge in seeking sustainable returns from equities.
We believe the key is to identify companies with business models that can stand the test of time and reliably deliver persistent growth through changing market cycles.
Jim T. Tierney, Jr., fund manager of the new ES AllianceBernstein Concentrated US Equity Fund, believes that a concentrated portfolio of high-quality US stocks can offer consistent alpha in today's low-growth world.
AB Concentrated US Equities Across Different Market Environments
The OEIC fund is based on an existing AB strategy with GIPS compliant performance track record. The manager applies the same, clear investment philosophy and process—which underpins our distinctive high-conviction approach.
Strategy past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results. The value of investments and the income from them will vary. Your capital is at risk.
*Based on performance of the institutional AB Concentrated US Growth Composite (the "Strategy"), gross of fees, in GBP since inception on 31 December 1974. Although similar, the performance of the Strategy is not the same as that of the ES AllianceBernstein Concentrated US Equity Fund. The returns presented above are gross of fees and do not reflect the deduction of investment-management fees: the client's return will be reduced by the management fees and any other expense incurred in the management of their account. Full GIPS composite performance disclosures for the Strategy are available on request.
