Consuelo Mack WealthTrack Featuring Tim Hartch
In a wide ranging interview, host Consuelo Mack and Tim discuss why we think the market has become more challenging from a valuation perspective, BBH Core Select and BBH Global Core Select’s bottom up approach, and why we believe a concentrated portfolio works best for our investors. Bill Priest, CEO and portfolio manager of Epoch Investment Partners, is featured as well.

Gross Domestic Product (GDP): The monetary value of all the finished goods and services produced within a country's borders in a specific time period. GDP is usually calculated on an annual basis. It includes all of private and public consumption, government outlays, investments and exports less imports that occur within a defined territory.
PE Ratio: Price/Earnings is a valuation ratio of a company's current share price compared to its per-share earnings.
Margin of safety: We believe a margin of safety exists when we are able to mitigate both business risk (our business, financial, and management criteria have been met; sustainable competitive advantages exist) AND price risk (when we believe there is a significant discount to intrinsic value at the time of purchase – we aim to purchase at 75% of our estimate to intrinsic value or less).
Intrinsic value: What one estimates to be the value of a company’s common stock based on analysis of both tangible and intangible factors.
