Argonaut is an active manager which aims to provide high conviction savings and investment solutions for investors by combining robust macroeconomic analysis with fundamental bottom-up stockpicking. Their investment process is based on their beliefs in earnings, economic cycles and return on equity.The firm first forms a top-down view of the economic cycle, monitoring macroeconomic indicators of future economic growth such as credit spreads, Institute of Supply Management and Purchasing Managers indexes, risk free yields, confidence surveys, central bank reports, commodity price momentum, corporate and individual balance sheet strength and technical analysis. Their stock analysis builds the economic picture from the bottom-up, analyzing changes in company earnings or profit margins and meeting with company management.ACP constructs concentrated portfolios, typically holding up to 55 stocks and as few as 30 stocks in a fund at any one time, preferring to focus their research efforts on their best ideas. They believe that share prices are driven by earnings. They also believe that economic activity is cyclical, and that over time different industries and styles of investing go in and out of favor, creating opportunities to generate alpha to deliver positive returns throughout the cycle, on both the short and long side. Finally, they believe that stocks with a high return on equity are intrinsically attractive.

Chahine Capital is a long-term manager specializing in 'active quantitative' investment management of equity portfolios and seeking to take advantage of mispricings. Their bottom-up investment process relies on a quantitative proprietary model based on price momentum, earnings revisions and valuation. Macroeconomic factors are not considered, neither are industry sectors. The outputs of the model are mitigated through the expertise and market 'awareness' of portfolio managers. Portfolios are back-tested extensively before launch, and past performance attribution plays an important role in the design of portfolios.Portfolios are diversified, invested primarily in equity and marginally in transferable debt. The firm emphasizes the importance of stock liquidity and focuses on the US and European Union markets (particularly France), Switzerland and Norway. The firm does not have market-cap restrictions but aims for balance in the size of companies within a portfolio. The firm minimizes stock rotation.Performances are evaluated against a variety of industry indexes. The risk management process focuses on risk and beta, as well as sector, country and currency breakdowns of portfolios.
