U.S. Value

Rigorous fundamental research performed through a quantitative lens

Our U.S. Value strategies seek to invest in the stocks of companies that appear undervalued based on our assessment of their intrinsic value. We apply the same investment process across large-cap, SMID-cap, and small-cap value strategies.

Innovative Screening Tool

To identify potential investment candidates, we employ a proprietary quantitative screening tool that analyzes a company’s ROIC (Return on Invested Capital) in relation to its enterprise value. Historical evidence shows that ROIC is the most effective metric to determine the likelihood of a company’s ability to create future shareholder value. Our innovative screening tool allows us to focus our fundamental research on stocks which we believe have the highest probability of delivering long-term outperformance.

Long-Term Outlook

We analyze each company’s fundamentals within the context of a three-to-five year outlook. Our buy-to-own approach has generally led to low portfolio turnover and has helped us purchase stocks at a discount from their intrinsic value.
