Harris uses a value investment philosophy in selecting equity and equity-like securities of U.S. and non-U.S. issuers. The firm's investment philosophy spans across large, mid and small cap companies. In addition, Harris may hedge a client's exposure to direct or indirect foreign currencies. In constructing portfolios for their clients, the firm seeks out companies that they believe are trading in the market at significant discounts to their underlying value. Harris believes purchasing businesses at a discount to intrinsic value minimizes risk while providing substantial profit potential. The firm uses a bottom-up approach focused on individual companies, rather than focusing on specific economic factors or industries. Harris generates their research ideas from a variety of internal and external sources. The firm's research process seeks to identify companies selling at a discount to its estimate of intrinsic value.

ValueAct Capital was initially formed in June 2000 to manage the capital of its three founders, along with the capital of a limited number of outside investors, in an investment strategy that combines intensive due diligence, a concentrated number of investments, and active, constructive involvement in the value creation at those investments. Today, with offices in San Francisco and Boston, ValueAct Capital manages more than $8.0 billion on behalf of some of the world's most respected institutional and individual investors. ValueAct Capital concentrates on acquiring significant ownership stakes in a limited number of companies that it believes are fundamentally undervalued. The investment team seeks to identify companies that are out of favor, or may be undergoing significant transition. Such companies may be temporarily mispriced for a variety of reasons, including perceived unfavorable industry conditions, poor business performance, changes in management or ownership, reorganizations, or other external factors. These conditions can often result in fundamentally "good" businesses that are available at depressed valuations. The goal in each investment is to work productively with management and/or the company's board to implement a strategy or strategies that maximize returns for all shareholders. ValueAct Capital is typically one of the largest independent shareholders at each of its core company investments and works in a constructive manner with management and/or the company's board to successfully implement strategies that generate superior returns on invested capital. The seven investment partners have extensive experience working effectively with portfolio companies as long-term large shareholders, and oftentimes as members of the companies' boards. At any given time, the portfolio consists of ten to eighteen core company investments, as well as a small "farm team" of additional investments in development.
