Welcome to Crawford

Ep. 15 | Reaching for Yield & Landing in Failure

March 20, 2023

At Crawford Investment Counsel, our stock selection process is focused on identifying high-quality businesses with conservative financial profiles. Our bank holdings are no exception, as we view the group through a lens that screens for diversified deposit sources, cautious approach to credit risk, and proven management, among other quality characteristics. We will continue to evaluate our bank holdings on an individual basis with a keen eye on managing the overall risk. But for now, we are content with our current holdings, none of which we view as impaired – either operationally or with respect to dividend income.

In this episode, we sit down with Boris Kuzmin, CFA®, our Financials analyst, to discuss recent developments in the banking sector. In addition to being available on our website, we are pleased to announce that our podcasts are now available on Spotify, Apple Music, or wherever you get your podcasts.
