Lyrical Asset Management employs a value investment approach. They believe that a portfolio of companies with low valuations relative to their long-term normalized earnings power will outperform the overall market over time. The firm's philosophy is to invest only in businesses that they believe are of high quality. Investments are limited to publicly-traded equity securities and cash equivalents. Clients may impose restrictions on investing in certain securities or types of securities. Lyrical Asset Management begins with a universe of the top 1,000 US stocks (market-cap around $3 billion), and then uses a proprietary screen to generate investment candidates. The screen estimates a fair price for each stock applying a normalized multiple to an estimate of 5-year forward normalized earnings, which is calculated by taking the historical earnings trend line of a company and consensus estimates for future earnings and statistically extrapolating forward 5 years. Each portfolio candidate/stock idea goes through a fundamental research process. This process is designed to develop an understanding of the business, including drivers of growth and profitability, competitive advantages, position and leverage with customers and suppliers, historical and potential business threats/opportunities, and management style, objectives and incentives. Attractive investment ideas are considered for inclusion in the portfolio. These are companies where Lyrical believes the investment controversy to be temporary, where the underlying business has sufficient quality and durability, and where the discount in the stock price is large enough to compensate for the risks of the investment.

Royce & Associates invests clients' assets primarily in the equity securities of US and foreign companies at all capitalization levels using its disciplined valuation-based investment approach. A significant portion of clients' assets are invested in the securities of micro-, small-, and mid-cap companies. Royce's value approach is based on their belief that the securities of certain micro-, small-, or mid-cap companies may sell at a discount from the firm's estimate of the companies' current worth. The firm seeks to identify and invest in these companies with the expectation that the value discount will narrow over time and thus provide capital appreciation for their clients. Investments may include purchases of securities offered in initial public offerings, secondary offerings, private placements, long and/or short positions in US and non-US publicly issued and non-public common stocks, ADRs, preferred stocks, stock warrants and rights, bonds of all types, including distressed and defaulted bonds, notes or other debentures, debt participations or bank debt, convertible securities, distressed securities, partnership interests, swaps, participation notes, derivative contracts and structured notes, and other securities or financial instruments. Royce & Associates may also invest a portion of the assets of certain accounts in ETFs, closed-end funds, money market funds and other funds. The firm's team of portfolio managers has significant personal investments in the strategies they manage.

These strategies include:, International Equities, Emerging Markets Equities, Global Equities, European Equities and Far Eastern (Ex-Japan) Equities, and US Equities. Vontobel employs a disciplined investment process that is predicated on long-term investment objectives. They believe that the best way to achieve capital appreciation and outperform the market over the long-term is by investing, at attractive prices, in well-managed businesses with consistent operating histories, solid financial performances, favorable long-term economic prospects and, in most cases, strong free cash flow. The firm's investment process relies on bottom-up analysis to identify high-quality, reasonably priced companies. Their strategies may also invest in derivatives. Generally, we will remain invested in a company unless a material change to our investment thesis occurs. Reasons for the firm to reduce the size of or to sell completely a company's shares include the following: the market price of a business exceeds their estimate of fair price; the business is involved in a major acquisition; its earnings growth, profitability and predictability deteriorate; or it is replaced by a better investment.
