Atlanta Capital offers investment advisory services in a variety of equity, fixed income and mixed-asset strategies. In-depth bottom-up fundamental analysis is the primary basis for their investment decision making process. The firm seeks to achieve above-average long-term risk adjusted returns through emphasis on high quality equity or debt instruments judged by Atlanta Capital to have unrecognized value or investment potential. For equities, high quality is generally measured by a company’s demonstrated history of consistent growth and stability in earnings. For debt instruments, high quality typically relates to the probability of repayment (credit risk) and the predictability of when principal repayment will occur (stability of cash flow).
