Video: Access large global companies with Loomis Sayles US Equity Leaders

Aziz Hamzaogullari, Vice President of Loomis, Sayles & Company and lead portfolio manager of large-cap growth strategies there, recently came in to speak with us about the Loomis Sayles US Equity Leadersfund. This is a fund that we rate four stars.

Making up this fund’s top 10 holdings include Amazon, Facebook and Visa. It’s a focused portfolio of between 30-40 names, and Hamzaogullari explains why he feels this is the right number of names in our exclusive video.

He talks about why he focuses on ‘business drivers’ rather than price to earnings ratio, using Google and Kodak as examples, and offers an in-depth discussion of Amazon and its attractive growth rate.

The value of all investments can go down as well as up and you can get back less than you originally invested.
