Today’s guests are GMO’s Ben Inker and Tom Hancock. Ben is the co-head of GMO’s Asset Allocation Team and Tom is the head of Focused Equity team and a portfolio manager for GMO’s Quality Strategies.
In today’s episode, Ben and Tom give their take on the markets so far in 2023. They both share why they think quality and value stocks are attractive today. We dig into both factors and get specifics on their set up looking forward. We also touch on growth traps, Japan stocks, the opportunity set in emerging markets, and what companies are at risk to be disrupted by AI.
