QV performs thorough analysis of equities and bonds combined with disciplined portfolio construction and asset allocation. For their fixed income, they build bond portfolios focused on high quality government bonds, corporate debentures, convertible bonds, and preferred shares. For equities, the firm buys a portfolio of sustainable and enduring businesses run by capable, committed and candid people. QV tests companies for possible portfolio inclusion based on criteria that evaluates the following: the quality and commitment of management; historical financial record; company's competitive position and business outlook; strength of the company's balance sheet; valuation of the company relative to expected returns; cash flow and dividend record of the company; and enhancement to the portfolio's quality, value and growth characteristics.

Lincluden Investment Management (LIM) employs traditional, value-based investment principles across a range of equity, fixed-income and balanced portfolios. The firm offers a clearly defined investment philosophy and approach to portfolio construction in the following areas: equities, fixed-income, balanced and value.For their equity investments, LIM screens a broad universe of Canadian, US and international stocks in the search for undervalued securities. Investment decisions are based on a thorough financial assessment of corporations and their management teams to identify securities that are trading at a substantial discount to LIM's appraisal of their fair value. Their focus on cash flow in determining a company's valuation is based on the belief that free cash flow is the best currency to enable a company to grow.LIM's fixed-income portfolios are structured to achieve the most efficient combination of duration, credit, yield curve and foreign exposure from a long-term, risk-reward perspective. The firm's investment process begins with an economic overview, which allows them to develop a view on inflation. Based on their view of value and risk, they then determine the appropriate portfolio duration which reflects their long-term view of inflationary trends relative to the current level of interest rates and shape of the yield curve. LIM believes that real interest rates should be calculated using long-term inflationary expectations instead of the current rate of inflation. In searching for the best value opportunities in fixed-income markets, the firm considers both domestic and foreign securities. When they find better value opportunities in foreign markets, their preference is to eliminate foreign exchange risk through the use of hedging.The firm's balanced approach seeks to create long-term wealth with a value-based, risk-managed approach that is based on disciplined asset allocation and security selection. LIM's valuation and portfolio structuring process incorporates a 'top-down' approach to determine asset mix, and a 'bottom-up' process to individual security selection.

Vertex One Asset Management provides a complete approach to investment management that embraces value, growth and event-driven opportunities in equity and fixed-income. The firm offers a bilateral approach to investing. They seek to achieve superior long term performance through investments by identifying catalysts that will create value for shareholders. The firm looks for companies that have low price-to-value metrics, have put themselves up for sale, or where a misvaluation has occurred within the capital structure of the company. Vertex One buys stocks that are trading at values below two-thirds the price-to-value metrics of their competitors. Firms with low debt, annuity stream-like revenues and high dividends are also favored. The firm strives to reduce risk in their portfolios but not necessarily volatility. This philosophy for value is pervasive in the firm and extends throughout the portfolios whether it is a bond which their assessment suggests is undervalued or an arbitrage situation (such as a merger) where the risk-return trade-off is in their favor. The firm utilizes equities, fixed-income securities, covered call and put writing, and arbitrage to offer portfolios not only diversified by holdings, but also by strategy.
