Get to the essence of Ariel Investments in this wide-ranging discussion on Ariel between Mellody Hobson and Commonfund’s Catherine Keating.
This is an interview of Mellody Hobson, which was recorded on March 6, 2018. Ms. Hobson candidly discusses her viewpoints of the economy and market conditions. The information contained in the broadcast is not guaranteed as to its accuracy or completeness. It should not be considered financial planning, tax, nor investment advice. The opinions expressed in this article were current at the time of interview. The information provided in this replay does not provide information reasonably sufficient upon which to base an investment decision and should not be considered a recommendation to purchase or sell any particular security.
Past performance does not guarantee future results. Investments in foreign securities may underperform and may be more volatile than comparable U.S. stocks because of the risks involving foreign economies and markets, foreign political systems, foreign regulatory standards, foreign currencies, and taxes. The intrinsic value of the stocks in which the Funds invest may never be recognized by the broader market. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost.
An economic moat is a perceived competitive advantage that acts as a barrier to entry for other companies in the same industry. This perceived advantage cannot protect investors from the volatility associated with stocks, incorrect assumptions or estimations, declining fundamentals or external forces.
