Best Ideas with Contrarian Views

Interview with: Kent Stahl

Not all financial markets are as efficient as the developed U.S. market. For investors with contrarian views and research resources, however, out-of-favor stocks in Canada, Europe, and the Asia-Pacific region can be particularly attractive. Kent Stahl, portfolio manager of the Hartford International Equity Fund, complements the input of a global research team with a factor-based risk management approach to build a diversified portfolio.


“Compared to the U.S., the non-U.S. market tends to be less efficient, and broader cap, style, or geography yield even more inefficiencies. The consistency of our performance has been predicated on the strength of our stock picking in less efficient segments of the market.”
Our risk framework is designed to give us a better sense of how we would do during those periods when our clients fear mean reversion. If we are able to mitigate extreme swings, it allows our clients to benefit from compounding alpha over many years.
