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.

  • Underweights to energy and consumer discretionary were additive, as was our selection in financials.
  • We have been selective buyers on market weakness, but we believe patience is key given high volatility and economic uncertainty.
