Strategy & Objective

The Fund seeks capital appreciation using a disciplined, value investment process. Through our consistent process and independent research, we own large cap companies that we believe are undervalued relative to their tangible assets, have sustainable cash flow and potential for improving business performance. The Fund is well diversified and seeks to own large, financially strong U.S. based companies that offer the best combination of value and potential for price appreciation. The Fund typically holds 50-80 securities and generally invests in companies with a market capitalization greater than $5 billion.

  • Emphasizes rigorous in-house fundamental research to identify undervalued large cap companies
  • Employs a disciplined and repeatable investment process
  • Incorporates multiple perspectives to enhance understanding of risks
