Company Description

CWAM provides professional management of global equity assets using in-house resources to seek superior long term results. The firm follows a fundamental, research-intensive investment style characterized by unconventional stock picking and multi-year time horizon.CWAM's investment style can be best described as growth at a reasonable price (GARP). The firm seeks to buy growing, undervalued companies, grow with them, and sell them when their growth slows or when they believe they are fully valued. The firm is particularly interested in underfollowed stocks and niche companies. They like companies that benefit from long-term trends that CWAM identifies. The firm uses dividend discount, private market value and cash flow models to value stocks. CWAM especially likes companies with hidden values beyond reported EPS, such as unusually high free cash flow, masked earnings power or hidden assets. They usually avoid companies in highly competitive or unpredictable industries, such as airlines, commodity semiconductors and many natural resource areas. CWAM invests client assets in certain small to medium capitalization companies, both US and foreign, that it believes have growth potential, financial strength and fundamental value. Although the firm invests its managed assets primarily in equity securities, it may also invest in other types of securities.
