That is Masters in enterprise with Barry Ritholtz on Bloomberg Radio.

00:00:09 [Barry Ritholtz] This week on the podcast, I’ve one other additional particular visitor. Andrew Lemons has just about completed every part on the wealth administration facet of the enterprise, beginning at Brown Brothers Harriman earlier than occurring to Morgan Stanley, the place he began out as a consumer dealing with wealth supervisor earlier than transferring into Portfolio Supervisor and finally creating the Utilized fairness advisors staff that makes use of a mixture of quantitative and elementary and behavioral pondering to create portfolios and funds which are sturdy and may survive any form of change in investor sentiment. They take a look at geography, they take a look at cap measurement, they take a look at fashion, they usually take a look at sector and try to hold a portfolio leaning in the direction of what’s working greatest. These are typically concentrated portfolios. The US variations are 30 to 60 holdings the place the abroad variations are simply 20 holdings. I, I discovered this dialog to be fascinating. There are a couple of individuals in asset administration which have seen the world of investing from each the consumer’s perspective and a consumer dealing with advisor facet to a PM after which a broader asset supervisor than Andrew has. He actually comes with a wealth of information, and he’s been with Morgan Stanley since 1991. That form of tenure at a single agency is more and more uncommon, uncommon nowadays. I, I discovered this dialogue to be completely fascinating and I feel additionally, you will, with no additional ado, Morgan Stanley’s, Andrew Slim.

00:02:01 [Andrew Slimmon] Thanks. It’s an honor to be right here.
00:02:02 [Barry Ritholtz] Nicely, it’s a pleasure to have you ever. So let’s begin at the start together with your background. You get a BA from the College of Pennsylvania and an MBA from College of Chicago. Was finance at all times the plan?

00:02:15 [Andrew Slimmon] I feel being in a aggressive trade was all of the plan. I performed tennis competitively in juniors and went on and performed in faculty and, and I at all times preferred the, , you both received or misplaced and what I at all times preferred about this trade, it was all about, , did you win or lose? There wasn’t numerous grey space, and I feel that’s what I do love in regards to the inventory market and investing usually, as a result of there’s a scorecard and you’ll’t, there’s no room on the scorecard for the editorials.

00:02:41 [Barry Ritholtz]] No, no factors for fashion or kind. Precisely, precisely. It’s simply did you win or lose? Precisely. So, so the place did you start? What was your first function throughout the trade?

00:02:48 [Andrew Slimmon] Certain. So, properly, my first function was opening the, the mail at a brokerage agency in Hartford, Connecticut. However I began my profession at Brown Brothers Herriman proper right here in, in New York, in a coaching program, which was nice as a result of that they had industrial banking, that they had capital markets, they usually had the funding administration facet of the enterprise. And that’s what getting publicity, all these led me to imagine, gee, I actually am within the inventory market and the way it works and investing usually.

00:03:16 [Barry Ritholtz] So what led you to Morgan Stanley? How’d you discover your strategy to proper to

00:03:21 [Andrew Slimmon] Ms? So I, yeah, I used to be a analysis analyst at, at Brown Brothers, and I used to be masking, , in healthcare shares. I, I noticed that there should be one thing extra to investing than simply what was going on the firm degree, as a result of I seen that the issues that had been transferring my shares on a day-to-day foundation, weren’t simply what was going on the firm degree. And College of Chicago the place I went, obtained my MBA was clearly very targeted on extra the quantitative areas of investing. And I took Fama and French and so forth and Miller and all those who, that taught me that what drives a inventory value is extra than simply the, , the corporate degree. And in order that’s, that was actually the way it, it rounded my information of form of investing the primary steps after which popping out of, of enterprise college. It was 91 and it was a recession. And I, I, I had met my spouse in enterprise college and she or he obtained a job at Child or Peabody, in case you keep in mind that, funding banking in Chicago. And I couldn’t discover form of a purchase facet alternative. And Morgan Stanley had a division referred to as Prior Wealth Administration that coated rich people and small establishments in Chicago. And I wanted a job and I had numerous scholar debt. So I stated, Hey, versus going the normal purchase facet route, I’ll begin on this space masking shoppers and investing for them.

00:04:49 [Speaker Changed] So 91, form of a light recession, gentle and actually midway by way of what was a rampaging bull market. What was it like within the 1990s in New York in finance?

00:05:04 [Speaker Changed] Nicely, I imply, the factor that was wonderful is we might have shoppers within the late nineties, they might come to us they usually’d say, Andrew, I’m not grasping. I simply need 15, 20% returns a 12 months.

00:05:15 [Speaker Changed] Proper.

00:05:15 [Speaker Changed] And no danger with,

00:05:16 [Speaker Changed] With restricted danger danger, restricted danger. Proper. I knew you’re gonna go there.

00:05:19 [Speaker Changed] And, and that’s what was so fascinating about at present Yeah. Is at present individuals say to me, Andrew, why would I spend money on equities once I can get 5% within the cash market? And what a distinction in a mindset, which tells you the place we’re. Within the late nineties, we had simply gone by way of a roaring bull market optimism was simply so rampant. And the worst 12 months within the enterprise I can bear in mind was 1999, as a result of as an investor masking shoppers, I used to be caught between doing the best factor for them, which was keep away from these ridiculously priced shares. Proper. Or get on the prepare as a result of the cash is pouring by way of. After which all of it got here to an finish in 2000, 2001. And I took a step again and stated, thank God I by no means, , I I I simply didn’t purchase in the best way some individuals did, and subsequently save individuals some huge cash. It was a tremendously good studying expertise for me to remain true to your values of investing. In the end, they work out. You,
00:06:16 [Speaker Changed] You might be figuring out one thing that I, I’m so fascinated by. The issue we run into with surveys and even the danger tolerance questionnaires is all you discover out is, Hey, what has the market completed for the previous six months? If the market’s been good, Hey, each I, after all I need extra danger. I’m, I’m, I’m greater than snug with it. And if the market obtained shellacked, no, no, no. I, I can’t, I can’t undergo any extra drawdowns. It’s simply pure psychology.
00:06:42 [Speaker Changed] And, and I’d go one step additional. this, you’re within the enterprise, however once you first meet somebody, you by no means know those which are going to be actually danger averse or actually can face up to the volatility. And ones that may, some individuals say, don’t fear, I’m not apprehensive in regards to the drawdowns. And the minute it occurs, they’re on the telephone to you. And a few individuals, I instructed you I wasn’t apprehensive and I didn’t name you. Proper. And you’ll by no means know. Simply the primary time you meet individuals who that’s going to be it, it’s

00:07:08 [Speaker Changed] A problem determining who individuals actually are. Not, not straightforward. So that you began Morgan Stanley in 1991. You’re in that, that’s a very long time in the past. Yeah. You begin on the non-public wealth facet. What led you to changing into a portfolio supervisor with Morgan Stanley Wealth technique?
00:07:24 [Speaker Changed] So if you concentrate on my profession, I discovered to be a elementary analyst. I went to College of Chicago and discovered that, oh, there’s quantitative components that drive a inventory value past form of what’s occurring on the firm degree. The third a part of my expertise was being in prior wealth administration, shoppers wanna imagine all of them purchase low and promote excessive, however bear, , that doesn’t, isn’t the case.
00:07:45 [Speaker Changed] Any individual does unintentionally somebody randomly high ticks and backside ticks to market. However no one does that constantly.
00:07:51 [Speaker Changed] Precisely. And right here’s an excellent instance of what, I imply, if you concentrate on the years 2020, in 2021, development shares took off. Proper? However in 2022 they obtained crushed. Do you assume extra money went into development managers and funds in 2021 or the top of 2022 after they obtained crushed?
00:08:10 [Speaker Changed] The flows are at all times a 12 months behind the place the market is. Precisely 00:08:13 [Speaker Changed] Proper. So, so what I Folks
00:08:15 [Speaker Changed] Are backwards trying.
00:08:16 [Speaker Changed] What? Nicely, and that’s as a result of there’s one thing referred to as the tear sheet. In case you had been my consumer, I went to you and stated, Barry, I feel it’s best to spend money on rising markets as a result of look how terribly it’s completed within the final 5 years. And I are you able to the tear sheet, you’re gonna go away.
00:08:28 [Speaker Changed] All people hates it,
00:08:29 [Speaker Changed] Proper? Hate it. So the issue with this enterprise is a inventory value doesn’t care what occurred up to now. It solely cares about what’s occurred sooner or later. However as people, all of us undergo from recency buys. So what I noticed within the nineties, it’s a long-winded reply. Your query isn’t any, it’s
00:08:45 [Speaker Changed] An
00:08:46 [Speaker Changed] Attention-grabbing, what I noticed within the nineties as a protection supply, you may’t get shoppers to really purchase what’s out of favor. Proper. And the flaw in the entire development worth us worldwide is individuals body, oh, perhaps I should purchase extra development as a result of it’s working properly, besides it will get too costly. So the rationale I left being in wealth administration, I used to be satisfied that I might begin methods utilizing extra quantitative, however give us flexibility. So if we might begin core methods in order that if development obtained too costly, we might tilt away from development, or if Europe wasn’t working, we might tilt away from Europe. That gave us extra flexibility as an lively supervisor versus saying, I’m solely a development supervisor. After which I’m at all times attempting to justify why you can purchase development. Or if I’m a worth supervisor, all at all times justifying why I purchase worth. Keep in mind, by 1999, a half of worth managers had gone outta enterprise within the final three years that simply earlier than they took off. That’s
00:09:48 [Speaker Changed] Unbelievable. I, I do know people who run brief hedge funds they usually say they might at all times inform once we’re due for a serious correction. ’trigger that’s when all of their redemptions and outflows it, it’s hit, hit a crescendo.

00:10:01 [Speaker Changed] And in order that’s the issue with the devoted fashion is you’re at all times preventing human habits simply on the juncture with which try to be investing. They’re promoting, they’re promoting their shares. So,
00:10:14 [Speaker Changed] So let me ask you the flip facet of the query. In case you can’t get individuals, or if it’s actually difficult to make individuals snug with shopping for outta favor kinds or firms, are you able to get them to promote the businesses which are in favor and have had, , an exorbitant runup and are actually expensive? Or, or is that simply the opposite facet of the identical coin? It’s
00:10:36 [Speaker Changed] The opposite facet of the identical coin, however, however I feel what complicates, is it taxes? Certain. As a result of individuals don’t wish to promote for taxes. And Common Electrical was an important expertise in my life in a, , again within the nineties, which was, it turned the primary inventory. Everybody cherished it. And, after which, , it went by way of a can’t develop as rapidly anymore. So the problem that I see within the trade is shares by no means survive because the the primary firm. And so finally they, they refuse and other people don’t wish to take cash off the desk once they’re the primary or tops as a result of they’ve massive good points. After which in the end individuals bought numerous Common Electrical with quite a bit much less of a achieve. So the trick is, is to scale back the exposures over time. So with, if I’m a core supervisor and I do know that development is dear relative to its historical past versus worth, we’ll tilt the portfolio. However we received’t go all into worth, all into development as a result of timing this stuff may be very, very difficult.
00:11:42 [Speaker Changed] So that you’ve been with Morgan Stanley since 19 91, three a long time with the identical agency. Fairly uncommon nowadays. What makes the agency so particular? What’s stored you there for all this time?
00:11:54 [Speaker Changed] Nicely, it’s a must to keep in mind that once I began in 9 19 91, wealth administration was a, was a comparatively small a part of the, of the agency. And I give James Gorman large credit score. He actually grew that space due to the steadiness of the money move. I ge I’m a reasonably secure money move. After which once I progressed to and Morgan Stanley funding administration, it was the identical idea, which was we worth the a number of on secure money flows is greater than on capital market flows. And in order that’s, I’ve form of adopted the development of how Morgan Stanley’s modified and that’s been an excellent alternative. After which I look and say, properly, I used to be in a position to go from wealth administration into the asset administration as a result of the agency grew in that period. So it’s a, it’s been a tremendously nice agency to be with, however I’ve, , my profession has modified over time as a agency’s modified over time. Certain.
00:12:47 [Speaker Changed] I, I had John Mack on a few 12 months in the past and he described that very same factor, the attraction of, of wealth administration. And a part of the rationale, what was it, Dean Witter, the large acquisition that was completed was, hey, this enables us to undergo the ups and downs within the different facet of the enterprise, which has potential for nice rewards however no stability. Proper. Versus prepared, regular, average good points from From the wealth administration
00:13:12 [Speaker Changed] Facet. Precisely. We purchased Smith Barney, so on the wealth handle, that was one other massive one. Proper. So then over the asset administration facet, there’s Eaton Vance E-Commerce Wealth Administration and with Eaton Vance got here Parametric and Calvert. So the agency has grown within the areas that I’ve grown personally. So it’s been an excellent, nice marriage for a very long time.
00:13:30 [Speaker Changed] So your expertise with Common Electrical? I had an identical expertise with EMC and with Cisco late nineties attempting to get individuals to acknowledge, hey, this has been a incredible run, however

the expansion engine isn’t there. The pattern has been damaged. Don’t be afraid to ring the bell. And I’m not an lively dealer. Yeah. I’m a long-term holder. Getting individuals to promote their winners isn’t straightforward
00:13:54 [Speaker Changed] To do, may be very, very exhausting. However, but in addition when shares get very, very massive, firms get very, very massive. It simply will get more durable to develop. In my expertise, and this has nothing to do, GE simply usually is when firms get massive, normally the federal government begins trying into their enterprise ’trigger they may dominate an excessive amount of. And so it’s a mixture of why over time, and I do know that is exhausting to imagine given the final couple years, why the equal weighted s and p does really outperform the cap weighted s and p as a result of firms, mid-cap firms which are transferring up, it’s simpler to develop. That
00:14:30 [Speaker Changed] Hasn’t, what has it been 25 years because the Microsoft antitrust 00:14:34 [Speaker Changed] Boy? And that’s, that’s
00:14:35 [Speaker Changed] That’s that’s wonderful. How typically are equal weight s and p outperforming cap
00:14:40 [Speaker Changed] Weighted? It outperforms about half the time. It definitely had, I imply take into consideration final 12 months and thru October, the cap weighted had outperformed the equated by 1100 base factors.
00:14:50 [Speaker Changed] Wow. That’s quite a bit.
00:14:51 [Speaker Changed] However the factor that’s fascinating about this, Barry, and, and once more, that is that it’s at all times the primary 12 months off of bear market, low buyers promote. So retail flows had been unfavourable from the low of October 22 till for a 12 months. And that’s till
00:15:06 [Speaker Changed] November 23. Precisely.
00:15:08 [Speaker Changed] However in case you return to 2020, March of 2020 flows had been unfavourable till February of 21. So it at all times takes a few 12 months,
00:15:17 [Speaker Changed] February of 20. That’s wonderful. ’trigger from the lows in March %, it was an enormous set
00:15:22 [Speaker Changed] Of good points and internet flows from mutual funds. ETFs had been internet they’re at all times unfavourable the primary 12 months due to that rear view mirror recency bias. The rationale why that’s related, Barry, is as a result of when buyers lastly stated, I can’t, I shouldn’t promote anymore, I should purchase, they’re not gonna purchase what’s already labored. They’re searching for different issues. And that’s when the equated actually began out earlier than. Huh,
00:15:42 [Speaker Changed] Actually attention-grabbing. So let’s speak a bit of bit about your idea of utilized investing. What does that imply? What, what does utilized investing contain?
00:15:53 [Speaker Changed] Okay, so there’s the theoretical story about it after which there’s the sensible story. And I’m certain you’ll get a kick out of the sensible, however the theoretical is that I don’t imagine {that a} inventory value return comes purely from what’s occurring. Essentially, it’s a must to determine ought to I personal development worth, giant cap, mid cap us versus non-US any shares return about two thirds of return in anybody 12 months may be outlined by these. So we’ve to get that proper first. And that’s the quantitative measurement. So

we use issue fashions to say, Hey, ought to we personal development shares or worth shares? And so we tilt our portfolios quantitatively based mostly on which of these components are sending a sign that they’ll work sooner or later.
00:16:36 [Speaker Changed] So, so let me simply be sure I perceive this. Geography measurement, sector and magnificence fashion are the 4 metrics precisely you’re and attempting to tilt accordingly into what you count on to be working and away from.
00:16:50 [Speaker Changed] Precisely. And the aim of that’s to maintain individuals within the recreation flip facet is, , issues are out of favor. They’ll keep out of favor. The issue on this enterprise is kinds and investing can keep out of favor longer than the consumer’s affected person’s period.
00:17:06 [Speaker Changed] Ju simply take a look at worth within the 2010s, proper? I imply if you weren’t leaning into development, you had been left means behind.
00:17:13 [Speaker Changed] Precisely. And what I noticed from my time being advisor is on the finish of the day, shoppers don’t actually care whether or not they personal development or worth. They don’t care whether or not they personal European US, they wish to generate profits they usually don’t need ’em go backwards. And if all you retain saying is sure, however , my worth supervisor has outperformed the worth index. And so they’re like, yeah, however the s and p goes by way of the roof. Proper? So it’s a must to have some flexibility in your strategy. So I needed to begin a gaggle that on the core would use these quantitative metrics, however pure quantitative takes out form of the basics of investing as a result of a sure portion of a inventory’s return comes from what’s going on the firm degree. And the opposite factor is, if all I did was deal with the quantitative, you’d find yourself proudly owning 300 securities. So
00:18:01 [Speaker Changed] Let’s, let’s
00:18:02 [Speaker Changed] Discuss SA and an SMA can’t do this otherwise you don’t drive sufficient lively share.
00:18:07 [Speaker Changed] MA is individually managed, managed, managed account account. Let, let’s speak about lively share as a result of your portfolios are pretty concentrated. The US core portfolio is 30 to 60 firms. That’s thought-about a modest holding, a concentrated holding. Inform us in regards to the pondering behind that focus.
00:18:28 [Speaker Changed] So it’s humorous, going again to that first job at Brown Brothers, , at, within the time within the eighties, nobody knew about passive investing. However I noticed that, , they’d have these portfolios they usually’d have form of two or three shares in each sector. So that you’d find yourself with, , 100 or 150 shares and , they, it, not that they did poorly, however they by no means actually, , it was actually exhausting to drive numerous lively, , efficiency.
00:18:51 [Speaker Changed] The whole lot is one 2%.
00:18:52 [Speaker Changed] And on the time it wasn’t actually, there wasn’t actually passive investing. However then as, as time progressed, all these research got here out and stated, properly really essentially the most extra return in lively administration comes from managers which are very, very lively. Proper? And in case you personal 100, 150 shares and also you’re the benchmark is the s and p, you’re not lively. So it was clear to me that we wanted very concentrated portfolios however management the danger. And in order that’s why we run these restricted portfolios. The utilized time period is, so it gave some quantitative strategy to what we do. However right here’s the

sensible Barry, which is when the agency got here to me and stated, okay, you’re gonna turn into an asset administration arm, you gotta give you a reputation in your staff. I knew that these companies present asset administration firms alphabetically.
00:19:44 [Speaker Changed] So utilized investing proper
00:19:45 [Speaker Changed] There, I wasn’t gonna be Z utilized. 00:19:48 [Speaker Changed] Proper.
00:19:49 [Speaker Changed] I needed to be on the high of
00:19:50 [Speaker Changed] The listing. That’s very, that’s AAA exterminator at all times the primary one. Precisely. To tug within the telephone e-book. So let’s speak about two stuff you simply talked about. One is lively share, however actually what you’re implying are that numerous these different funds with 200, 300 or extra holdings, they’re all excessive payment closet indexers. What’s the worth
00:20:10 [Speaker Changed] There? Proper. And that’s why as an lively supervisor, I’ve nothing towards ETFs. I feel it’s completed nice for the trade as a result of disgrace on funds that personal tons and many securities. You’re not doing a service to your investing. However on the finish of the day, if I marginally underperform, not me, however usually, , it is going to take time to lose your belongings. what’s proper for the cash administration agency isn’t at all times what’s proper for the, so the best factor is select passive methods, however there’s a spot for lively picture, nevertheless it’s gotta be lively
00:20:42 [Speaker Changed] Core and satellite tv for pc. Precisely. You may have a core of a passive index, however you’re surrounding it bingo with one thing that provides you a bit of alternative for extra upside. Precisely. Huh. Actually, actually attention-grabbing. So if the US holdings are 30 to 60 firms, the worldwide portfolio is much more concentrated about 20 firms?
00:21:00 [Speaker Changed] Yeah, I imply, so, so taking a step again once more, one of many, , bear in mind I run mutual funds, however I begin within the separate managed account enterprise. So what it, what means is they might wealth handle would implement our portfolio for people by shopping for inventory. And one of many issues that I noticed is that shoppers pull from the market sooner than they pull from shares. So in different phrases, once you’re apprehensive in regards to the market, if it’s in regards to the market, some macro story, properly do you wanna promote your Microsoft? Oh no, I like Microsoft, however I’m apprehensive in regards to the market. Okay, properly proudly owning particular person securities is basically highly effective as a result of it really retains individuals invested.
00:21:46 [Speaker Changed] There’s a model identify there that they relate to a
00:21:49 [Speaker Changed] Model. Precisely. So persons are extra prone to pull from the market. So I imagine in proudly owning shares, however the issue is, once more, it goes again to, however in case you personal 200 shares they usually don’t have any wedded, so might we begin a method? We began this oh eight the place all of the securities could be on one web page.
00:22:04 [Speaker Changed] That’s wonderful. So your world portfolio additionally has some worldwide US firms. So along with issues like LVMH and another worldwide shares, you might have Microsoft, you might have Costco. Right. What’s the pondering of placing these large US firms in a worldwide portfolio?
00:22:21 [Speaker Changed] It goes again to Barry, that idea, which is shoppers don’t care actually the place they make their cash. And the issue with the, the good thing about world, a worldwide methods, I can personal

some US shares and a global solely I can’t personal. And what occurs if the US simply so occurs to do higher than the remainder of the world, then worldwide doesn’t work as properly. So it simply offers us extra flex. It’s that versatile flexibility to go the place the chance set is.
00:22:51 [Speaker Changed] And to that time, your fund, the Morgan Stanley institutional world concentrated fund, which does have US inventory trounce, the, the MSEI precisely X us, as a result of the US has been outperforming worldwide. That’s one other fashion for 15. Because the monetary disaster, the US has been crushing completely everybody else.
00:23:14 [Speaker Changed] However take into consideration this fashion additionally, if I can personal 20 shares, okay, however they’re not all correlated to one another, proper? In order that they’re, they’ve numerous totally different themes. Like I actually like this, the, the, the infrastructure shares proper now. However I additionally assume there’s a spot, as you stated, Microsoft, however luxurious manufacturers just a few shares, however have a special theme. Then I can management the danger within the portfolio. You,
00:23:38 [Speaker Changed] You’re diversified excessive act to share, however concentrated 00:23:41 [Speaker Changed] Excessive act to share, however decrease form of danger.
00:23:44 [Speaker Changed] So once I take a look at the Morgan Stanley institutional US core, the outline is we search to outperform the benchmark no matter which funding fashion, worth, or development is at the moment in favor. So your fashion agnostic, you wish to simply stick with what’s working.
00:24:02 [Speaker Changed] Precisely. And Philip Kim is the opposite portfolio supervisor. We’ve labored collectively 14 years. I began these quantitative fashions after which he actually took it to the subsequent degree. And this was what has the chance of outperforming for the subsequent 12 to 18 months from a mode standpoint. That’s how we bias the portfolio. Issues might get simply too costly, issues get too low cost, however we have to see some migration in the wrong way after which we purchase us accordingly. We wish to keep within the recreation.
00:24:29 [Speaker Changed] What in regards to the Russell 3000 technique? That’s not, it’s clearly extra concentrated than the Russell, nevertheless it’s nonetheless a couple of hundred shares. Inform us what goes into that factor. Nicely
00:24:39 [Speaker Changed] We seen that our, simply our quantitative issue mannequin alone was doing properly proper past simply including the inventory to purchase. So we needed to begin a method that might add a bit of little bit of extra return versus simply shopping for an ETF that was simply targeted on that issue fashions. However we might diversify away the inventory danger.
00:25:01 [Speaker Changed] Actually intriguing. So let’s speak a bit of bit about Slimmons take, which isn’t solely broadly learn at Morgan Stanley, it’s additionally fairly broadly distributed on the road itself. In the direction of the top of 2023, you set out a chunk, a couple of classes from the 12 months, and I I believed a few of these had been actually fascinating. Beginning with the s and p 500 has produced a optimistic return in 67 of the previous 93 years, the market produced two consecutive down years, solely 11 instances. That’s wonderful. I had no concept.
00:25:35 [Speaker Changed] Nicely, I imply, give it some thought. The, the, the chance over time in anybody 12 months, the market’s going to go up and if it, if it doesn’t go up, that’s irregular. However then to have one other 12 months in a row may be very, very irregular. In order that’s, that’s why I started 2023 saying, Hey, it’s, it’s extremely possible it’s gonna be 12 months simply purely based mostly on, based mostly on the percentages. And then you definately layer in that entire recency bias rear view mirror and other people had been means too unfavourable.

00:26:02 [Speaker Changed] Yeah. On the finish of 2022, the s and p peak to Trth was down about 25%. You level on the market had been solely eight cases since 1960 the place you had that degree of drawdown and the common one 12 months return was 22% following that.
00:26:21 [Speaker Changed] So I’ve put out a chunk in September of 2022 saying, market’s down 20%, it’s best to add cash down 20%. And naturally I felt like an fool, , a month later as a result of, after which the market was down 25%. And I produce a chunk saying the common return is simply over 20% in case you purchase into down 25%, which doesn’t essentially imply it stops happening. Proper? However what’s wonderful about that’s, what, the return off that October 22nd low of 2022 was
00:26:49 [Speaker Changed] 30 one thing. 00:26:50 [Speaker Changed] No, 21%. Oh 00:26:52 [Speaker Changed] Actually? Lifeless on
00:26:53 [Speaker Changed] Proper. Lifeless on in line. It’s uncanny how this stuff repeat itself. And that’s Barry once more, it goes again to, , your expertise, my expertise is the macro adjustments, however behaviors don’t. Proper. That’s the consistency of this enterprise and that’s what I’m fascinated
00:27:08 [Speaker Changed] With. Human nature is perpetual. It’s, it’s, it’s Proper. No, little doubt about it.
00:27:11 [Speaker Changed] And that’s what gave me assured that the enjoyable flows would flip optimistic in some unspecified time in the future within the fourth quarter as a result of it was a 12 months off the low.
00:27:18 [Speaker Changed] I actually like that. Be doubtful when a inventory is said costly or low cost based mostly on a singular valuation methodology like pe this can be a pet peeve of mine. The e is an estimate at somebody’s opinion. How are you going to depend on one thing, particularly from somebody who doesn’t have an excellent observe file of creating
00:27:39 [Speaker Changed] This forecast. It’s the, I feel that’s the most important error buyers make over time is, properly this inventory is, , as you stated, this inventory is reasonable or this market, take into consideration Europe. Mar Europe has appeared cheaper than the US for numerous years. The flaw in that’s the e is a ahead estimate. And it’s turned out that the E for Europe hasn’t been pretty much as good as what’s anticipated. And the E for the US particularly the Nasdaq, has been quite a bit greater than was anticipated. So the denominator has come up within the us which makes a PE decrease and the denominator come down you, which made it look costlier.
00:28:18 [Speaker Changed] In order that, that’s at all times wonderful is that if the estimates are are flawed to the draw back, properly then costly shares aren’t that costly and vice versa. Precisely. If the estimates are too excessive, low cost shares actually ain’t low cost. Proper.
00:28:31 [Speaker Changed] I watched that. However we additionally watched revisions and I’ve discovered, discovered additionally from being, , cynically on this enterprise. Firms don’t at all times come clear immediately and say, oh, our enterprise actually unhealthy. It’s the, they drip out the information, proper? Normally one unhealthy quota follows one other unhealthy quote. I imply it’s very uncommon. So watch out that, and analysts are gradual to regulate their numbers. Anytime somebody says, I’m slicing my estimates, slicing my value goal. However I feel it’s bottomed,
00:29:00 [Speaker Changed] Proper?

00:29:00 [Speaker Changed] Yeah. Watch out.
00:29:02 [Speaker Changed] Yeah. To that’s at all times, at all times amusing. I believed this was actually very perceptive. Over 37 years within the funding enterprise, I’ve turn into satisfied that essentially the most cash is made when perceptions transfer from very unhealthy to much less unhealthy. I like that as a result of in case you’ve lived by way of the.com implosion or the monetary disaster and even the primary quarter of 2020, you understand how true that’s.
00:29:26 [Speaker Changed] Take into consideration final 12 months, , it’s the previous saying by Sir John Templeton bull markets are born on pessimism. They develop in skepticism, they mature on optimism they usually die on euphoric. Nicely, we had a bear market backside in October of 2022. And so we got here into final 12 months, 2023 with, it’s gonna be a tough touchdown, it’s gonna be unhealthy. And so there’s excessive ranges of pessimism. And now as you advance into the fourth quarter fund flows turned optimistic as individuals notice, properly perhaps it wasn’t gonna be so unhealthy. We’ve moved into the skepticism section. In order that’s why the most important return 12 months is at all times the primary 12 months off the low as a result of that’s the most important pivot and it has the least volatility. We didn’t have numerous volatility final 12 months
00:30:16 [Speaker Changed] And, and we noticed that in oh 8, zero 9 and we noticed that in 2020. 2020. It was actually, it was actually fairly wonderful. The flip facet of that is additionally true, which is most cash is misplaced when issues transfer from nice to only good.
00:30:33 [Speaker Changed] Nicely, once more, if I am going again to form of development investing, it obtained costly and the expansion charges of firms wasn’t fairly pretty much as good and , in 2022 and the Fed began elevating charges and that was problematic. It was no totally different. It jogged my memory a bit of little bit of the.com bubble. What introduced down the.com bubble is that firms simply couldn’t report the earnings that had been anticipated. And also you had loads of time to get out. However the issue is, what I noticed within the.com bubble, individuals needed to stored shopping for these shares as they’re going decrease as a result of they had been, , rear view mirror investing. They had been the earlier the the loves. And what’s wonderful is consider, I stated earlier than half the worth managers went outta enterprise in 99 by the 12 months 2008. Are you aware what the most important sector of the s and p was? Financials they grew from nothing to 30% of the SP. So worth labored all by way of the primary interval till we all know what occurred in nice monetary disaster. It
00:31:27 [Speaker Changed] It, it’s wonderful that muscle reminiscence once you’re rewarded for getting the dip for a decade, it’s a tricky behavior to interrupt. Precisely. Precisely. So, so right here’s one other actually attention-grabbing statement of yours. Regardless of the scorching product isn’t works the subsequent 12 months.
00:31:43 [Speaker Changed] It’s as a result of a scorching product invariably pushes oftentimes valuations to excessive. And one of many issues that we obtained very proper in 2023 was in 2022 Bear Market, what did individuals purchase into the lows of Bear Market? They purchased defensive shares, dividend oriented, low volatility sort methods turned very fashionable in 2022 throughout a bear market. And so we might see that the defensive issue, security turned very costly. In order we got here out of this bear market, what lagged client staples, healthcare, utilities, all of the protected issues. So scorching merchandise pushes issues to excessive and that normally, , unwinds itself badly
00:32:34 [Speaker Changed] Traditionally, as soon as the fed stops mountaineering charges, fairness rallies last more and go greater than anybody expects. Clarify the pondering
00:32:43 [Speaker Changed] Then. So I feel it’s excellent news for this 12 months, but in addition worries me about this 12 months is in case you take a look at the historical past of the time period when the Fed stated we’re completed mountaineering until we’re

going to chop that interval does very, very properly for equities. And we’re form of at a, a juncture the place it, we’ve completed fairly properly. But when they’re not gonna minimize charges till the summer season, I feel there’s extra room to run for shares. Now the flip facet is, I hear lots of people speak about when the Fed cuts the notion that that’s gonna be good for equities. I’m not so certain about that as a result of in case you look again in historical past, when the Fed cuts markets are inclined to go down initially not up. And you could possibly argue sure, however Andrew, that’s as a result of normally once they’re elevating charges it’s an financial cycle, proper? And subsequently in the event that they’re slicing, there’s an issue. And this time it was all about inflation. However what worries me is when the Fed does announce they’ll minimize will individuals say, oh, they know one thing you don’t know. There’s an issue on the market. And I feel there’s an that may enhance the anxiousness. And so I feel that’s, we’re in interval proper now, nevertheless it worries me once they do minimize, will or not it’s individuals begin to fear about, there’s some, there’s an issue within the financial system.
00:33:59 [Speaker Changed] See I I I’m a scholar of federal reserve historical past and I I might say with a excessive diploma of confidence, they don’t know something that you simply don’t know. They, they take a look at the identical knowledge, they’re populated by people, none of whom have demonstrated any explicit form of prescient. And if we watched the previous decade, they had been late to get off their emergency footing. They had been late to acknowledge inflation, they had been late to acknowledge inflation peaked. And now it seems like they’re late to acknowledge, hey, you guys received, you beat inflation. Precisely. Take a victory lap. Proper? They, they appear to at all times be speak about backwards trying. They at all times appear to be behind the curve. Proper.
00:34:38 [Speaker Changed] However I simply assume the inventory market is an emotional beast. Certain. And , and I look final 12 months and the Bears individuals had been too pessimistic each time they pop their head out of the den, they obtained stampeded. And they also’ll have a greater 12 months this 12 months and I feel it is going to scare buyers and cynically, I can’t assist however assume, properly individuals missed most, lots of people missed final 12 months and now they’re beginning to get again in and after a really low volatility 12 months, there’s at all times extra volatility the subsequent 12 months. And so it’s inevitable it’s gonna be extra, it doesn’t imply it’ll be a foul 12 months for equities, it simply can have extra intestine wrenching durations.
00:35:10 [Speaker Changed] I like this knowledge level since 1940, markets have at all times gone up within the 12 months when an incumbent president runs for reelection 17 for 17. Now if we break that down, what you’re actually saying is, hey, if an incumbent isn’t working, the financial system actually must be within the stinker roo and the inventory market is following. However anytime an incumbent is working sometimes means we’re we’re doing fairly okay. Nicely
00:35:37 [Speaker Changed] And bear in mind I stated didn’t get reelected, simply ran for reelection. Proper. And so what occurs, and I see it this 12 months, is when presidents run for reelection, they wish to juice the financial system, they need the financial system going properly, proper? And we’ve, Joe Biden has in his pocket the Infrastructure Act, the CHIPS Act and the Inflation Discount Act. We personal, the rationale why we personal industrial shares is as a result of they’re telling us that the cash is simply beginning to are available from the federal government. And these tasks are getting simply getting off means. We’ve seen this with the chips act, the cash is simply began poor. Proper. That’s why the market tends to do properly as a result of the financial system stays afloat throughout a reelection 12 months. And
00:36:20 [Speaker Changed] And the actually attention-grabbing factor about all this, , it’s humorous, the 2020s is the last decade of fiscal stimulus, whereas the 2010s had been financial stimulus, the primary three cares acts. That was a, only a boatload of cash that hit the market, hit the financial system abruptly. Every of the

laws packages you talked about, that’s spending over a decade, that could possibly be a reasonably first rate tailwind for some time.
00:36:43 [Speaker Changed] Very attention-grabbing between hearken to Wall Avenue and what you hearken to firms. And so I’m an organization man. I hearken to firms and I’ll offer you an excellent instance. Proper now individuals assume the buyer is getting tapped out, however on the Costco name the opposite day, they are saying they see massive ticket buy objects. Reaccelerating, properly wait a minute, I believed the buyer properly, which is it? Which is it? Proper. And , and so the the purpose of that is, is that I am going again to hearken to what firms say. And I think as meals inflation begins to come back down and other people have jobs, they really might begin to go purchase, , greater ticket purchases. So,
00:37:15 [Speaker Changed] And we’ve seen some uptick in bank card use, nevertheless it nothing problematic with the power to service that debt nonetheless appears to be very a lot intact. Right.
00:37:24 [Speaker Changed] And that goes again to final 12 months, one of many causes I, the opposite purpose I used to be optimistic is I stored listening to our firms say to me, I’m being instructed the recessions across the nook, however our enterprise appears to be doing properly. We don’t see it. Proper. We
00:37:34 [Speaker Changed] Don’t see it. That’s actually wonderful. So, so let’s speak a bit of bit about who your shoppers are. You clearly are working with all of the advisors at Morgan Stanley, however you’re managing mutual funds. Who, who’re the patrons of, of these funds? Are they in-house? Are they the remainder of the investing neighborhood? Who, who, who’re your shoppers?
00:37:53 [Speaker Changed] Yeah, I imply, in order that’s when, once I left being advisor in 2004, I began this group inside Morgan Stanley. Wealth administration with the merchandise had been solely accessible to monetary advisors at Morgan Ceiling. However once I left to enter Morgan Ceiling funding administration in 2014, the aim of that was to make my merchandise accessible past Morgan Ceiling wealth administration as a result of I used to be getting calls from consultants and institutional buyers saying, how will we get entry to those funds? And I’d need to say, properly it’s a must to undergo an advisor. So, in order that, I needed to broaden out the attain past. So I’d say we’re on numerous platforms, you should buy our funds by way of the self-directed route. And so we’re broadening out the, the distribution. And also you talked about the slim and take earlier than. That may be a, a technique that we use to succeed in out to our investor base.
00:38:49 Clearly I’d love to speak to every of each one in every of ’em, however I can’t. However I’ve discovered on this enterprise, in case you talk in a means that they will perceive, and I don’t imply perceive in, , in, in a foul means. Like, however writing a six web page diatribe about why my shares are so nice and why the remainder of the market stinks. Nobody’s gonna learn that. They put it apart and say, I’ll learn it tonight, then they don’t. However in case you can present brief bullets of what’s occurring out there, why individuals needs to be bullish or bearish, you present them with speaking factors. And that’s what we actually attempt to do throughout the agency, however past the agency as properly.
00:39:24 [Speaker Changed] Yeah. I I, one of many causes I like lemon’s take is you actually boil issues all the way down to brass tack. You’re not afraid to make use of third events in a few of your opponents analysis. You, you cite different individuals on the road once they have an attention-grabbing knowledge level or, or, and and I very a lot respect that. ’trigger lots of people form of take the, if it wasn’t invented right here, it doesn’t exist to us.

00:39:51 [Speaker Changed] Yeah. I imply look, I’m, I’m, I wish to develop the belongings. I wish to carry out properly, however I worth the responses from the those that sit on the entrance traces coping with shoppers day by day as a result of they’re those that really feel form of the emotional facet of the enterprise. Certain. In case you sit again in, , my workplace and all, I’m an organization and simply evaluating whether or not it’s PE is acceptable and earnings, you’re lacking an enormous a part of this enterprise. It’s a behavioral enterprise. And so getting access to advisors and listening to their suggestions is so vital.
00:40:27 [Speaker Changed] So that you serve on Morgan Stanley’s Wealth Administration’s World Funding Committee. What’s that have like? I’d think about that’s an enormous quantity of capital and an amazing duty. It
00:40:39 [Speaker Changed] Is a large quantity of capital and it drives form of asset out prompt asset allocation for advisors. They don’t essentially need to pursue it that means. My enter is clearly on the fairness facet, however they’ve individuals within the, on the re the mounted earnings, excessive yield options. And so they all present inputs into framing and overview. So I’m actually, I sit in Morgan Stanley funding administration, however I do present that context and I feel they wish to have me on ’trigger I even have pores and skin within the recreation and I run cash for a, a residing and I’m not at all times there saying you gotta purchase development otherwise you gotta purchase worth. So I’m of agnostic. I’m simply attempting to determine the place the form of the ball’s going. Do.
00:41:20 [Speaker Changed] So within the previous days you used to talk with retail buyers on a regular basis, a as a pm Do you miss that forwards and backwards as a result of there’s some sign in all of that noise, whether or not it’s worry or greed or Certain. Emotion. How, how do you, how do you use being arm’s size away from that?
00:41:41 [Speaker Changed] I, that could be a massive concern I’ve is dropping that entry. So I nonetheless, I’m going to, I’m talking in an occasion tonight with a, , a room stuffed with advisors. So, after which, , we’re, we’ll, we’ll get collectively afterwards and I’ll hearken to what they need to say. So I’m at all times focused on suggestions that I get from advisors. Clearly I can’t spend all day speaking on the telephone. That’s the large purpose why I left being an advisor was I acknowledge, hey, being an advisor, you gotta speak to your shoppers so forth. You’ll be able to’t handle cash and fear about each quarter can each. You’ll be able to’t do each. And anybody that thinks you may, I, , it’s, it’s loopy and I actually wanna develop these fashions, however I I, so, so all these communication methods, like slim and Take is a strategy to be in contact with advisors, encourage them, Hey, you assume you, you disagree, ship me an e mail. , I’m pleased to, pleased to listen to from you as a result of I feel that’s essential. Huh. Actually,
00:42:35 [Speaker Changed] Actually
00:42:36 [Speaker Changed] Attention-grabbing. I actually, behavioral finance, , the, the longer I’ve been on this enterprise, I’ve been on this enterprise a very long time. It’s the behavioral finance that’s the consistency of this enterprise. Geopolitics adjustments, proper? However how individuals react is, isn’t, doesn’t
00:42:52 [Speaker Changed] Actually change. Proper. You, you, you may’t ch management what nation is invading what different nation. However you may handle your personal habits. Precisely. And other people have a tough time with that. Precisely. It’s actually attention-grabbing. I, I do know solely have you ever for an additional 5 minutes, so let me leap to my favourite questions. I ask all of my company beginning with what have you ever been screaming nowadays? Inform us what’s been both audio or video, what’s been protecting you entertained?
00:43:15 [Speaker Changed] Yeah, I, so if I take into consideration my profession, nobody took me apart and stated, that is the way you handle cash, proper? Like, give it some thought. I discovered about elementary analysis, I find out about

quantitative, I be taught in regards to the practicality of being in wealth administration. And so I’ve at all times researched and watch and what does that obtained to do together with your query is I’ve discovered my strategy to being profitable portfolio managers. So I’m obsessive about form of at all times studying alongside the best way. So I, , once I watch podcasts it’s at all times about, whoa. Or, or, or hearken to podcasts or watch, , issues. It’s, it’s at all times advance my information base. Now I did play tennis, , in faculty and so I like all these, , break level, first tee, , the System one. I like all these issues. However, however , as my spouse will get pissed off with me, ’trigger I’m in all probability gonna not gonna sit down and watch a 3 hour senseless film as a result of it’s form of like not, not advancing.
00:44:13 [Speaker Changed] Huh. Actually, actually attention-grabbing. Inform, inform us about your mentors who helped to form your profession.
00:44:19 [Speaker Changed] So I imply, once more, I take a look at factors alongside the best way had been invaluable Once I obtained to Morgan Stanley, Byron Ween, who, , I barely knew, however he was the primary individual that I acknowledged had this excellent contact of fundamentals, but in addition the psychology, proper? And so he was an excellent mentor regardless that he by no means actually knew me, however listening and studying and understanding him was actually vital. However then I had a man who ran our division named Glenn Regan, who had come from learning cash administration organizations and I didn’t know begin a cash administration group ’trigger it was a staff inside and the way do you develop and diversify. So there’s been totally different individuals alongside the best way which have actually formed me. I got here outta College of Chicago, gene Fama instructed me purchase low cost shares, however then William O’Neill stated, yeah, however that doesn’t work and it is advisable to have some momentum to, , like, he didn’t inform me that you simply
00:45:14 [Speaker Changed] Want a bit of can slim in that you simply
00:45:15 [Speaker Changed] Have to, , you had a bit of can so it is advisable to cancel. Precisely. So there’s been individuals alongside the best way which have been nice influences on me which have talked about me on the proper time in my profession.
00:45:26 [Speaker Changed] What are a few of your favourite books and and what are you studying proper now?
00:45:29 [Speaker Changed] I simply completed similar as Ever by Morgan Housel. Once more, this idea of behavioral. I’ll eat up, you set a behavioral, something about behaviors in entrance of me, I learn it so like, , Richard Thaler mis misbehaving or , assume quick, assume gradual, all these boats of books. Daniel Crosby is one other one. All these books I simply, however I simply completed that and I simply adore it as a result of once more, all he spends the entire e-book is about this stuff. They only don’t change over time.
00:45:56 [Speaker Changed] Human nature, human perpetual, 00:45:58 [Speaker Changed] Human nature. Huh.
00:45:59 [Speaker Changed] Actually attention-grabbing. I’ll inform you
00:46:00 [Speaker Changed] The final story. So, or I used to be inform a narrative. I used to be, I used to be on the ground of the New York inventory change the day that Russian invaded Crimea. And one in every of my shares was down ni my largest place was down 8% that day. And I stated, they don’t have any shops in Crimea. Why is the inventory down? Nicely, as a result of it was geopolitics. Nicely, , and inside three days the inventory got here ro again. So I, it

it’s, all it factors to is usually fundamentals dislodged from, , the, the inventory costs. And it’s a must to perceive that there’s a hu behavioral factor.
00:46:32 [Speaker Changed] My favourite model of that story was, are you accustomed to Cuba? Yeah, certain. So Obama proclaims we’re gonna normalize or begin the method of normalizing relationships with Cuba. There’s a inventory that trades below the image CUBA having nothing in any way. And it runs up 20% on simply on the announcement. Right. As a result of some algorithm picked up Cuba and purchased it. And off, off we go. Right. Wonderful. All proper, our closing two questions. What kind of recommendation would you give to a current faculty grad focused on a profession in both funding administration or finance?
00:47:07 [Speaker Changed] Yeah, so it’s attention-grabbing. I’ve 4 youngsters which are, , within the strategy of or have simply come outta faculty or within the strategy of, and one of many risks I see at present is youngsters come outta college they usually assume they know precisely what, what they wanna do. , after which, and I’ll say, you don’t know your, what your capabilities are once you’re 22 years previous. I imply, I used to be an introvert once I was 22. I’ve, I’ve realized within the early thirties I knew talk. So I’m, I at all times say get into, if you will get right into a agency that has numerous alternatives, , at present there’s much less coaching applications, however these kinds of issues with a number of alternatives. ’trigger you don’t know what you’re gonna be good at and what you’re good at. All the time observe what you assume you’re focused on so long as it makes cash, as a result of that’s in the end, however you don’t know initially. So I at all times encourage individuals initially don’t come out and say, I wish to do that the remainder of my life. You don’t know, that’s too slender. Attempt to go to one thing broad. That’s the primary recommendation. And, and I see at present the place individuals too slender of their focus.
00:48:08 [Speaker Changed] I feel that’s nice recommendation. Folks, a lot of the people I work with who’re very profitable, they’re not doing what they did proper outta college. And to think about that that’s gonna be your profession. Very a lot deceptive. And, and our closing query, what have you learnt in regards to the world of investing at present that you simply want you knew 30 plus years in the past once you had been first getting began?
00:48:29 [Speaker Changed] Nicely, I feel, , 30 years in the past I believed it was all about simply what’s going on the firm degree. After which I noticed, oh wait, that doesn’t actually, , drive a lot of the shares return. So it’s a must to perceive extra in regards to the broader implications of firms. I feel 30 years in the past there was much less dissemination of elementary information. Broadly at present it’s a lot, , it’s a lot broader. So having info entry essentially is extra, harder. So I feel the, the enterprise has modified. However once more, I am going again to, I feel the, the most important change in my, how I give it some thought is behaviorally I’ve come to the actual, that being an advisor sitting on the entrance line, I view that as a really key a part of what’s formed my profession. Understanding that, , once more, it doesn’t matter that the corporate didn’t have any shops in Crimea.
00:49:22 It went down for, , fairly a bit. Or your Cuba story. I imply that, there’s only a behavioral factor to this in investing, investing enterprise. And look, , once more, I am going a, an excellent instance which I discussed earlier than, which is it didn’t matter what development shares you personal in 2022, all of them went down, proper? And so was all of it the businesses did poorly, no development obtained too overbought. And so it had a correction. All of them got here again final 12 months. , so understanding form of these behaviors. I like that Warren Buffet quote buyers body their view trying solidly within the rear view mirror. Understanding that and being able to tack towards that. That’s actually what’s what’s labored for me over time.

00:50:03 [Speaker Changed] Hmm. Fa fa actually fascinating stuff. Thanks Andrew for being so beneficiant together with your time. We have now been talking with Andrew Schleman.
