Schultze Asset Management Named to List of Best Financial Advisory Firms by USA Today.

RYE BROOK, N.Y., April 27, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Schultze Asset Management, LP, an investment firm specializing in financially troubled and distressed companies, has been named to USA Today‘s list of the Best Financial Advisory Firms of 2023. This prestigious list was created by USA Today and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider, to help individuals secure the financial guidance they need in this time of stock market volatility and an uncertain economy. The full list of 500 firms can be viewed on the USA Today website.

“We are especially honored to be included on this prestigious list of the Best Financial Advisory Firms as we proudly celebrate our 25th anniversary as a firm,” said George Schultze, Founder of Schultze Asset Management. “We managed to outperform all of the major indices on a relative basis last year, which was heartening, but our goal is always to generate much higher absolute returns for our clients. We see the opportunity set for this year as very compelling and believe we are on track toward achieving our goals for 2023.”

According to USA Today there were more than 32,000 RIA firms in the U.S. at the end of 2021, managing more than $127 trillion in client assets. The total includes approximately 14,800 firms, like Schultze Asset Management, registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The remaining 17,300 firms each manage less than $100 million in assets and are registered with state agencies. The list by Statista for USA TODAY has culled that daunting universe of RIAs to a top 500 firms based on the growth of their assets under management over the short and long term, and recommendations from clients and peers. 

USA Today and Statista selected the Best Financial Advisory Firms in 2023 based on two dimensions: recommendations by clients and peers and a firm’s growth of Assets under Management (AUM). The recommendations were collected via an independent survey sent to over 20,000 individuals. The development of AUM was analyzed in both the short- and long-term based on publicly available data. In the consideration for the top 500 RIA firms, recommendations had a weight of 20% while the development of AUM had a weight of 80% (short-term and long-term growth were equally weighted) to derive the final score.

Russia And Geopolitics Throw
Another Curveball At Investors

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky (L) and Russian President Vladimir Putin (R) meeting in Paris is December 2019 to hold formal talks over the conflict in Ukraine’s east, a little over two years before the Russian invasion

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, in addition to the pain and devastation it has caused, also added another roadblock to the global economy’s attempt to return to some kind of “normal” after the pandemic. In addition to pushing oil prices even higher, it’s also broadly raised the level of inflation. Inflation had already been spiking due to extreme levels of monetary and fiscal accommodation following the onset of the pandemic. As a result, gas prices, which are already over $5 in California, are currently averaging over $4/gallon nationwide, with some sources predicting the highest prices in US history by Memorial Day. Inflation is evident in many other places, too – cars, housing, tuition, wages, and even food, to name a few.

Dot-Com Déjà vu?

NEW YORK, NY – JULY 30: People are reflected in the window of the Nasdaq MarketSite in Times Square on July 30, 2018 in New York City. As technology stocks continued their slide on Monday, the Nasdaq Composite dropped 1.1 percent in afternoon trading with shares of Facebook, Netflix, Amazon and Google-parent Alphabet all declining. (Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images)

Is history repeating itself in the stock market? CEO George Schultze thinks the current market looks very similar to the dot-com bubble in the late ‘90’s when companies were overvalued and as a result, the “bubble burst” when capital dried up. Now while we’re facing a period of inflation in combination with overvaluation from investors blindly buying FAANG stocks over the years, these companies have uncertain future revenue growth. Will the bubble burst? Read George’s insights in Forbes:

Price of Oil Fuels Inflation, but Shows Economy is Bouncing Back

PASADENA, CA – JANUARY 8: A man puts gas in his car at a Union 76 station on January 8, 2010 in Pasadena, California. The price of crude is up 12 percent in the past month to about $82.88 a barrel. The national average price of gasoline is a dollar more than last year, rising above $2.72 per gallon. Oil investor trends are being blamed for the rise in crude and cold weather has spurred demand for natural gas. (Photo by David McNew/Getty Images)

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that prices rose 6.2% in October, the largest annual increase since 1990, driven by supply chain and labor shortages as well as higher energy prices,” says CEO George Schultze in his recent Forbes blog. With inflation rates up, there’s still investment opportunities in previously distressed companies, both public and private. Read which companies he’s interested in right now:

As we head into 2022, the big question remains: What will happen with the Fed? Will it really start to taper in the first or second quarter, and when will it raise interest rates?” CEO George Schultze discusses inflation and the investing opportunities for distressed debt in 2022.

In his latest Forbes blog post, George Schultze questions, what’s next? Heading into the next distress cycle, we know this: the US has excessive debt, and the global supply chain will see the effects of China’s real estate bubble. George outlines the build up to Evergrande’s potential fail and how this could impact the US economy, pushing to future distress. Read his full article here:

Factoring Changing Weather Patterns Into Investment Decisions

Extreme weather events like Hurricane Ida are occurring with greater frequency causing damage to buildings, businesses, power lines, roads and more, stemming conversations about climate change and our impact on the environment and how such considerations should factor into investment decisions. “AccuWeather estimates that the price tag for Ida’s damage could reach $95 billion,” says founder, George Schultze in his most recent @Forbes blog post. Investors should keep this in mind when analyzing companies in certain sectors. Read the full post here:
