Lazard U.S. Equity Concentrated Expects Huge Capital Gains

Analyst Note

Lazard recently announced Lazard U.S. Equity Concentrated's 2023 distribution estimates. The fund expects to distribute roughly $5.65 per share at the end of 2023, which would be an astonishing 40% of its net asset value as of Oct. 18, 2023. Most of the distribution is expected to be long-term gains, which get taxed at a lower rate, but investors in taxable accounts should still anticipate a hefty tax bill. Morningstar estimates that the fund had nearly $970 million in outflows in 2023 through September, which was nearly 80% of the fund's year-end 2022 $1.2 billion assets under management. The outflows come amid a stretch of underperformance and likely led the managers to sell or trim holdings to meet redemptions. The fund's shrinkage is a cause for concern, but the strategy itself still has about $4 billion following it, mostly in separate accounts.
