The Topic of Discussion: Navigating Through a Crisis
Alger has navigated seven recessions and countless crises, including the Global Financial Crisis, the
dot.com bubble burst, the Asian Financial Crisis, and September 11th during their more than 55 years of
investing in growth equities.
They believe that the lessons learned throughout these events are applicable during this current crisis. First, their
experience and research shows that innovation grows through all kinds of economic volatility. Second, strong
competitive advantages often translate into expanded market shares in times of stress in the economy. Third,
in their view, liquidity and balance sheet flexibility are paramount so that great companies can survive and thrive
in the inevitable recovery.
Throughout these market-changing events, equities, and in particular, equities of innovative companies that
aggressively capture market share and maintain strong balance sheets, have historically been highly resilient.
