Equity Perspectives

Lord Abbett Portfolio Manager Thomas O’Halloran reflects on a remarkable 10 years for innovation growth equities. 


Air Date: August 23, 2021

I’m Tom O’Halloran and I’m the lead portfolio manager of the Innovation Growth funds at Lord Abbett.

Title: Thoughts on a Decade of Innovation Investing

Today's companies know a lot more. They're a lot wiser than the companies of 50-60 years ago because we've had a great had great success in America with innovation companies now, for you know 60 years.

And the companies of today have learned the lessons of the of the previous successes and failures and they're better.

So, as we come up to the 10 year anniversary of Growth Leaders [Note: The Lord Abbett Growth Leaders Fund marked its 10th anniversary on June 30, 2021] [one thing] I’m really struck by is how powerful the technology revolution has become with each passing year.

We have many companies that we own in Growth Leaders today that we had never heard about before when we started it in 2011. And some of these companies are worth more than $100 billion today.

So we go out in time, the exponential growth in processing power is what I believe [is] the equivalent to a new raw material--more brainpower that companies in all different sectors have to work with to open up new markets or to expand existing ones, and we get to invest in all of this in a low interest rate environment.

So Growth Leaders has had a great 10 years and I'm looking forward to 10 great years ahead


Thank you for listening and thank you for your continued interest in Lord Abbett.
