of Heartland Advisors
Milwaukee-based Heartland Advisors was founded in 1983 by Bill Nasgovitz, who has embraced the value philosophy based on the ideals of Ben Graham. Their 10 Principles of Value Investing serve as guiding tenets for all investment decisions.
Troy McGlone provided a brief overview of Heartland’s investment approach and culture – emphasizing collaboration, value focus, and contrarian thinking. During the afternoon he had the opportunity to interview potential internship candidates.
David Krause, AIM program director commented, “Troy explained the firm’s 10 Principles of Value Investing with several example that the AIM students in the Class of 2020 appreciated. They are at the point in their studies where they are beginning to put the pieces together and Troy’s presentation gave them an opportunity to see how the process at Heartland works. Many of the students found the 10 Principles to be a useful guide as they begin the task of completing their first full blown equity analysis.”
The students had an opportunity to understand how potential stock investments are ‘gridded out’ within Heartland’s approach. He emphasized the importance of deep research and the value of both quantitative and qualitative analysis.
