AOR Extra - The Power of Focus
​This debut installment of Alger On the Record Extra explores how investors might meet their growing need for alpha. Many believe that focused strategies, investment strategies containing roughly 50 or fewer securities, effectively deliver alpha potential.

Risk Disclosures: Investing in the stock market involves gains and losses and may not be suitable for all investors. Growth stocks tend to be more volatile than other stocks as the prices of growth stocks tend to be higher in relation to their companies’ earnings and may be more sensitive to market, political and economic developments. Investing in companies of small capitalizations involves the risk that smaller, newer issuers may have limited product lines or financial resources, or lack of management depth. Foreign investing involves special risks including currency risk and risks related to political, social, or economic conditions. There are additional risks when investing in an active investment strategy, such as increased short term trading, additional transaction costs and potentially increased taxes that a shareholder may pay, which can lower the actual return on an investment.

Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
