Portfolio Manager James Ayer is celebrating his 5th year as portfolio manager of the Oppenheimer International Equity Fund. Under Ayer’s leadership, this strategy seeks to invest in companies benefitting from long-term structural trends while providing investors with exposure to both value and growth companies.
Ayer builds portfolios around four long-term structural growth tailwinds: mass affluence, new technology, restructuring and aging.
In this video, Ayer joins George Evans, Chief Investment Officer of Equities, to discuss why he believes this strategy will lead to better outcomes for clients and why his approach has the potential to be sustainable over the long term.
Mutual funds and exchange-traded funds are subject to market risk and volatility. Shares may gain or lose value.
Fixed income investing entails credit and interest rate risks. When interest rates rise, bond prices generally fall, and the Fund’s share prices can fall. Foreign investments may be volatile and involve additional expenses and special risks, including currency fluctuations, foreign taxes, regulatory and geopolitical risks. Emerging and developing market investments may be especially volatile. Eurozone investments may be subject to volatility and liquidity issues. Value investing involves the risk that undervalued securities may not appreciate as anticipated. Mid-sized company stock is typically more volatile than that of larger company stock. It may take a substantial period of time to realize a gain on an investment in a mid-sized company, if any gain is realized at all.
