Investing Philosophy

We invest in smaller companies, primarily those with market capitalizations up to $5 billion, although some of our Funds may invest in companies with market capitalizations up to $10 billion. The value approaches that our portfolio managers use share one significant trait: We are looking for what we believe are terrific stocks trading for less than our estimate of the company's worth as a business - its enterprise value.
