CCM provides advice concerning transactions related to extraordinary corporate events such as mergers, rights offerings, divestitures, share repurchases and spin-offs.

Associate
1996 - 1999
A team of portfolio managers oversees each product.The large-cap growth portfolio is constructed relative to the Russell 1000 Growth index. The goal for the large cap value portfolio is to outperform the Russell 1000 Value index. Stocks meeting their minimum capitalization and liquidity requirements are screened based on a proprietary methodology. Once this focus list is determined, they conduct in-house fundamental research to narrow the list to buy candidates. Stocks are selected based on either a low p/e ratio relative to projected earnings growth or on a discount to intrinsic asset value. Ark's small/mid-cap value philosophy reflects a belief that incremental returns can be achieved within the small/mid-cap universe by combining a quantitative approach with traditional fundamental analysis. Using a proprietary six factor model, the universe is further refined using a combination of historical and current data.For their Specialty Growth portfolio, Ark invests in companies along a broad range of market capitalizations that provide significant growth opportunities due to secular or cyclical changes. Their goal is to achieve substantial returns versus the market over a full market cycle through a concentrated portfolio of stocks. This process is driven by research-intensive fundamental stock selection, focused on developing themes and selecting stocks within them.Ark generally sells companies that become less attractive than other securities due to deteriorating current fundamentals or declining earnings expectations.In managing fixed-income portfolios, Ark's investment decisions integrate the expertise of a team of fixed-income specialists. The investment process begins with a top-down approach focusing on the current environment, the economy, and interest rate outlook. Their duration strategy is designed to be risk averse; they do not use market timing.A key determinant in maximizing total return for a given level of risk is proper positioning of a portfolio along the yield curve. Their positioning is based on the current shape and anticipated changes in the yield curve, and an analysis of the spot and forward yield curves. Quantitatively, they review spread relationships among the various sectors, conduct break-even analysis and project total rates of return for various scenarios. The qualitative analysis involves the evaluation of technical factors influencing the market, such as trends, imbalances and seasonal patterns.
