Channing Capital Management employs a long-term value-oriented approach to investing in US mid-cap and small-cap stocks. The firm utilizes a fundamental, bottom-up value investment philosophy that focuses on undervalued and neglected stocks primarily with a market-cap of $2 billion to $15 billion. They look for companies that are trading at significant discounts to their intrinsic value. Portfolios are constructed on a stock-by-stock basis with a focus on the return potential of individual securities. Channing's relatively concentrated approach focuses on stock picking rather than market timing or sector allocation. The firm relies primarily on stock selection to generate above average returns as opposed to forecasts which emphasize sector weightings relative to a portfolio benchmark. However, Channing does employ sector and industry diversification as a risk management tool.

FHS engages in the purchases of securities, as well as, selling securities short, across all major sectors of the economy, (e.g., financials, energy, industrials, basic materials, consumer cyclical & non-cyclical, communications, utilities and technology). The fund's returns are dependent on individual stock selection and the tactical portfolio management of the collective exposure levels.

The fund seeks to profit from short investments that are overvalued and are expected to experience deterioration in financial performance. FHS is designed to achieve a more favorable long-term risk adjusted return versus the broader equity market.Forest Hill Regional Bank Strategy/ Forest Hill Strategic Value Fund LP (FHRB) is a public equity fund driven by a comprehensive due diligence process that seeks to invest in healthy community and regional banks that, despite growing market share, are trading at deep discountscompared to their historical averages of price-to-tangible book value. The fund seeks to recapture value in healthy community and regional business focusing on banks that were negatively impacted during the industry's devaluation resulting from the global financial crisis of 2008. FHRB is a directionally-long investment strategy dedicated to deploying capital in the common equity of publicly traded community and regional banks located primarily in the Sunbelt region of the US. Forest Hill Capital looks for banks that possess strong capital ratios, trade at discount valuations relative to historical averages, and have the ability to enhance shareholder value through execution of offensive consolidation strategies. FHRB seeks investments in attractively-positioned, business-focused banks located in viable markets that are expected to benefit from diminished competition and a more favorable pricing environment. Investment returns are dependent on individual stock selection, portfolio construction and tactical management. Emphasis is placed on banks that serve local and regional business customers, possess low cost deposits and hold loans with short term maturities or variable rate credits. Although FHRB is predominately a dedicated long investment strategy, Forest Hill Capital does employ short selling tactics in an effort to enhance investment returns.
