Brookfield Asset Management Inc (NYSE:BAM) is an asset management company. Year-to-date, Brookfield Asset Management Inc (NYSE:BAM) stock gained 5.1% and on November 30th it had a closing price of $40.49. Here is what Qualivian Investment Partners said:

“Brookfield Asset Management: BAM was neutral this quarter to our performance with the stock largely range – bound. BAM is a premier investor in alternative assets, including real estate, infrastructure assets, fixed income, and private equity. The stock underperformed together with much of the credit sensitive financial sector as the uncertainty regarding the length and depth of the COVID slowdown increased in the first and second quarters. Some of BAM’s subsidiary companies (BPY for instance) have substantial exposure to real estate and have higher than average levels of leverage. We reduced our holding in BAM in the second quarter as it became harder to forecast its economic earnings over the next five years. The stock remains under review.”
