Will Non-US Value Ever Outperform? A Contrarian Value Perspective

Third Quarter 2020 

The valuation gap between growth and value stocks has reached new extremes. What will it take for value to finally bounce back? Two Wellington Management senior portfolio managers offer thoughts.

From our sub-adviser, Wellington Management

Equity markets around the world suffered a steep drawdown in the first quarter as the coronavirus drove an unprecedented shutdown in economic activity. Leading the way down was the value style, with traditional value sectors, such as energy and financials, underperforming. As equity markets began to recover in the second quarter, the value style continued to lag, just as it has for the better part of the last 12 years.
