FMA utilizes a research driven, fundamental, value-oriented strategy for selecting investments. In choosing equity investments, the firm focuses on the market price of a company's securities relative to their evaluation of the company's asset value, including an analysis of book value, cash flow potential, long-term earnings and multiples of earnings of comparable securities of both public and private companies. Each investment is analyzed separately and there are no set criteria as to specific value parameters, asset size, earnings or industry type. Using a value-oriented strategy, each of the firm's funds invests mainly in undervalued stocks that are trading at a discount to their intrinsic value. To a lesser extent, their funds also invest in restructuring or distressed companies. FMA's funds are not limited to pre-set maximums governing the size of the companies in which they may invest. They invests the equity portion of its portfolio predominantly in mid- and large-cap companies, with the remaining portion of its equity portfolio in smaller companies.
