Buying Growth Stocks at Value Stock Prices
ClearBridge’s Elisa Mazen discusses the ClearBridge International Growth Fund with MarketWatch
Managing Director, Head of Global Growth, Portfolio Manager
"Growth can be volatile. We adjust for that by having a valuation focus.”
In a recent interview with MarketWatch, Elisa Mazen, the head of global growth at ClearBridge Investments, discussed how the team selects companies for the ClearBridge International Growth strategy.
The team works to identify stocks of growth companies that are underappreciated by other investors. “We buy good companies at moments when we think the market is missing the bigger picture,” according to Mazen. She also talks about the importance of identifying various types of growth companies — emerging, secular and structural — to be prepared for different market environments.
