Howard Marks: Anatomy of an unexpected rally

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, investors have eagerly checked the latest memos to clients written by Howard Marks, Co-Chairman of multibillion-dollar asset manager, Oaktree Capital.

Marks recalls the recovery from the 23 March low resulted in the biggest three-day gain in more than 80 years, which built into a rise of 45% by 8 June. In fact, after Marks' note was published, Wall Street closed its best quarter since 1987, so it is timely to review his anatomy of a rally.

Howard Marks has presented at the Sohn Hearts and Minds Investment Leaders Conference in 2016 and in 2019.
