Mid Cap Value Managed Account

Defensive Mid-Cap Value Equities

Jump to a section

Overview

Client Commitment

As defensive value specialists, we look to invest in high quality companies with strong management teams, stable balance sheets, and durable competitive advantages that are trading at attractive valuations. We seek to achieve excess returns over full market cycles, with less risk than our benchmark and peers as measured by standard deviation, beta and down market capture.

Why Invest in the Portfolio

    Attractive Reward/Risk

  1. Our disciplined valuation process measures downside risk before upside potential and invests in securities with favorable reward/risk ratios.
  2. High-Conviction Process

  3. The portfolio typically holds between 60 to 90 stocks with business fundamentals considered more important than fluctuations in the wider economy.
  4. Different Than the Benchmark

  5. The benchmark is not used as a starting point for portfolio construction, which should lead to high active share.

Past performance cannot guarantee future results. Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal and fluctuation of value. Returns greater than one year are annualized. Returns are expressed in U.S. dollars. All returns reflect the reinvestment of dividends and other earnings.
*Pure gross performance results do not reflect the deduction of any trading costs, fees or expenses and returns will be reduced by such advisory fee and other contractual expenses as described in the individual contract and Form ADV Part 2A. Pure gross returns are supplemental to net returns.
Net returns are calculated by subtracting the highest applicable Managed Account fee (3.00% annually, or 0.25% monthly) from the pure gross composite return. The Managed Account fee includes all charges for trading costs, portfolio management, custody and other administrative fees. Actual fees may vary depending on, among other things, the applicable fee schedule and portfolio size. The fees are available on request and may be found in Form ADV Part 2A.
Perkins Mid Cap Value managed account net returns prior to 1/1/05 are presented net of custodial and trading fees. After 1/1/05 net returns are net of the maximum 3.00% fee.
