Sam Sheldon of Punch & Associates Investment Management presented his in-depth investment thesis on Pzena Investment Management (US: PZN) at Best Ideas 2020.

Thesis summary:

Pzena Investment Management is a focused deep value manager led by an aligned team with a strong investment track record. Shares of Pzena recently traded near their lowest historic valuations after a trying decade for both value investors and active management left Pzena’s underlying opportunity largely ignored. 

Despite these headwinds, the firm has launched new strategies, invested into sales and marketing, and maintained net client flows better than a group of their public peers. Sam attributes the superior performance in part to maintaining a strong and unwavering commitment to value investing. Shareholders of Pzena are paid an attractive 6.5% dividend yield, rewarding those who wait for the “growth versus value” cycle to eventually shift.
