2020 Annual Report

Investing

Our letter to shareholders

With the wind in our faces, our teams came together in 2020 under historic societal and economic conditions to deliver record results—a culmination of investments in our strategies, our capabilities and our people. 

To build on that momentum and capitalize on opportunities, we are enhancing our strategic plan amid a major shift in asset allocations, driven by reflationary government policies and evolving investor needs, that we believe will likely benefit real assets.

There is no guarantee that any market forecast set forth will be realized.
