Quality investing has a long-term track record of outperformance that has stood the test of time. Value investing, on the other hand, has struggled in the last decade, leading some to question its merits. But one strategy,  the Jensen Quality Value Strategy, has a long history of successfully combining the two: buying high-quality companies below their intrinsic value and outperforming its mid-cap value peers.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • How businesses have evolved and what it means for value investors.
  • What DCF models are and whether they are worth the extra effort.
  • What constitutes a “quality” stock and why a consistent approach to identifying value are the keys to long-term outperformance.
  • Why “deep value” may no longer deliver the returns that investors expect, and the role that “relative value” can play inside a manager lineup.
  • Why value investors need to look for long-term partners to invest on their behalf.
