Process, Checklists and Bargain Hunting

March 5, 2020

International investment analyst Alex Frey shares how the firm’s checklist mentality fuels its time-tested research process.

At Harris Associates, we don’t have an opinion about how equities will perform this year, if a recession will start or if the political parties will produce pro-growth candidates during the next election cycle. As long-term investors, we don’t think it matters.
