Cooke & Bieler employs a traditional, conservative, domestic equity, value investment strategy. They generally employ a long-term approach, rather than engaging in trading or speculative investment strategies. Cooke & Bieler are active, bottom-up managers who study the fundamental characteristics of companies and the industries in which they operate to reach a conclusion on their quality and intrinsic value. Their security analysis also emphasizes research meetings and interviews with corporate management. The firm seeks to take advantage of short-term but fixable problems, either industry-wide or in specific investee companies. The quality characteristics they insist on allow management time to fix internal issues, to outlast competitors in consolidating industries, or to take advantage of economic cycles. Cooke & Bieler believes that their explicit focus on price and quality differentiates them from other value oriented managers. They base their valuation on ten years of projected cash flow plus a terminal value, and our historical holding period has been 3 to 5 years. Cooke & Bieler provide investment advice with respect to the following strategies: Large Cap Value, Mid Cap Value, All Cap Value, Small Cap Value, SMID Cap Value and Balanced.

PIML seeks a broad range of investments whose businesses and growth prospects are being inappropriately valued by the market. To do this, the firm employs a team of specialist investment analysts who take a global perspective and apply screening and intensive research to identify investment opportunities. They use various methods to make sense of the universe of stocks available around the world. These include screening which allows for the selection of companies based on very specific criteria (screens) across a databank of companies. PIML is able to delve deeply into cross-comparative studies of companies around the world, thereby drawing up short-lists for more intense study. In setting these screens, the firm may build on a hypothesis regarding social, political, or economic change. Once a company has been identified as a potential investment opportunity, it is investigated by the investment analyst who will call on the resources available to PIML. These may include material from the company itself and its competitors, reports from stockbroking analysts and industry material. The firm may utilize a multi manager approach in the investment decision making process for providing investment advisory services to funds and client portfolios. PIML's investment strategies include: adopting a bottom-up stock selection methodology, through which long term capital growth is sought by investing in undervalued securities around the world; seeking absolute returns and not returns relative to any index; investing excess funds in cash when undervalued stocks cannot be found; and actively managing currency.

Our firm was founded to help small investors build significant capital over time. Since we believe in owning as many promising stocks as possible, we generally buy on margin.* Borrowing to invest can force liquidations if the market collapses, so we try to balance this exposure by selling short. This ability to seek investments both up and downstream is rarely available to smaller investors. We, however, view it as an effective tool that doubles our clients' dollars at work (it also doubles our commissions), while moderately reducing their exposure to abrupt swings in the market. Our approach is not for the short-term investor. Clients must be able and willing to accept risks. Accounts will experience sharp fluctuations month to month, year to year. It takes a strong stomach to invest with us. Clients entrust decision making for their accounts to us: we buy and sell without asking our clients to authorize in advance each transaction. We are paid commissions for our work
