Clarkston Capital Partners' (CCP) investment approach is based on a quality and value investment philosophy. The firm's equity investment philosophy is based on the belief that the best way to achieve long-term stock portfolio performance is to buy quality companies that are undervalued in the market. The primary objective of CCP's fixed income philosophy is capital preservation. The firm's equity strategies include: the Clarkston Small-Mid Cap Equity Strategy, the Clarkston Large-Cap Equity Strategy, and the Clarkston Dividend Strategy. All strategies are governed by the firm's disciplined investment methodology which results in a concentrated portfolio of quality businesses. CCP invests in stocks of individual quality companies with sustainable competitive advantages resulting in consistently high Cash Returns on Net Operating Assets (CRONOA) and management teams capable of generating high returns on capital. When appropriate,CCP's fixed income portfolios are constructed to minimize risk while generating consistent cash flow. Clarkston Capital invests primarily in municipal state general obligations rated at least AA by the major rating agencies, U.S. Treasuries and high grade corporate bonds issued by firms with strong balances sheets, sustainable competitive advantages and consistent free cash flow generation. All fixed income holdings will be investment grade or better at the time of investment and current maturities will be less than 10 years.
