Video Series Examines Disruption in the Markets, Featuring Industry Futurists and Alger Analysts

Since its founding, Alger has applied its unique investment strategy that seeks to take advantage of change, whether it’s at the company, industry, or global level.

Fred Alger Management, Inc., a leading asset management firm with approximately $22.8B in assets under management, today announced the continuation of its “Think Further” brand campaign featuring the “Conversations with Tomorrow” film series. The campaign first launched in October 2014 to celebrate Alger’s 50th anniversary and encourage viewers to think critically about the innovations impacting major growth sectors, just as Alger’s analysts do when assessing companies and industry trends.

This year, the film series features data strategist and futurist Kenneth Cukier as he speaks about the idea of “big data,” and on October 20th, genetic engineer and futurist Juan Enriquez will explain the disruptive effects of “life code” and the future of business. A new feature of this year’s campaign is “The Analyst Conversations,” which features several Alger analysts discussing innovations that are disrupting sectors and industries, and creating investment opportunities for Alger’s clients.

Thinking further is illustrative of Alger’s singular vision of investing in Positive Dynamic Change, which helps to enable the firm to identify companies that are positioned for success either through high unit volume growth or positive life cycle change. Throughout its history, Alger has remained true to this philosophy and its proprietary, bottom-up, fundamental research process.

“We are excited to launch these new films as part of the ‘Think Further’ campaign,” said Dan Chung, CEO and CIO of Alger. “Since its founding, Alger has applied its unique investment strategy that seeks to take advantage of change, whether it’s at the company, industry, or global level. Kenneth and Juan are at the leading edge of their fields in identifying changes that may happen 10 years into the future. I hope you find their insights as interesting and valuable as we do.”

The “Analyst Conversations” videos feature Alger analysts Ankur Crawford, Ph.D., Senior Vice President, Alex Goldman, Senior Vice President, and Ben Reynolds, Vice President, discussing disruption in their respective sectors and industries (Technology, Industrials, Internet).

“At Alger, our analysts are always looking ahead to see where companies are going, not where they have been. We believe these three videos demonstrate how our talented team also thinks further to identify companies experiencing Positive Dynamic Change,” added Dan.
