VNIM provides both equity and fixed income management. For equity, their philosophy is to identify temporary information and liquidity inefficiencies in the respective market capitalization universes that provide opportunities to invest in companies at valuations that they believe are materially below their long-term intrinsic value. They primarily employ a fundamental, bottom-up investment process. The firm utilizes a disciplined valuation methodology combined with fundamental research to take advantage of the inefficiencies in the universes. While the investment process is not driven by macro issues, the portfolio managers constantly monitor the macro environment to consider any impact it may have on stock selection and portfolio construction. For fixed income, VNIM believes active, risk controlled management, founded on research-driven analyses, can uncover relative values that, over the long-term, produces returns with less risk. Their fixed income investments are driven by two factors: (1) client guidelines on allowable investments and (2) the client's relative benchmark.

Mendon Capital Advisors Corp.'s investment strategies focus on the financial services sector. The firm believes that abnormal absolute returns can be earned in the financial services sector due to ongoing industry consolidation, which they believe can be expected to continue for many years. In addition, Mendon believes that the financial services sector provides investment opportunities in almost all types of interest rate, credit quality and other macroeconomic environments. The firm generally focuses more on smaller-cap companies in which it is possible to gain an information advantage through research, and experience.Mendon's general philosophy is to identify companies that meet either long bullish or short bearish criteria. This strategy provides advisory clients with adequate flexibility to take advantage of opportunities identified during both rising and declining markets. The firm may purchase or sell put options or call options for their advisory clients to protect the underlying investments and to generate income or for speculative purposes.

Investment Counselors of Maryland (ICM) offers clients value investment solutions across the market-cap spectrum. In doing so, the firm utilizes two distinct investment processes. Both approaches employ a value-oriented investment method with a focus on fundamental analysis. ICM attempts to measure the value of a security by looking at economic and financial factors including the overall economy, industry conditions, and the financial condition and management of the company itself, to determine if the company is underpriced or overpriced. These two strategies include: Small Cap, SMID Cap & Mid-Cap Value and Large Cap Value.In selecting investments for their Small Cap, SMID Cap & Mid-Cap Value strategies, ICM seeks to invest in companies that they estimate to be undervalued that also possess leading market share positions, shareholder-oriented management teams, and strong balance sheets and cash flow ratios. Usually, the shares of the companies they buy are selling at a price-to-earnings ratio below the average price-to-earnings ratio of the stocks in the broad capitalization-specific indices (i.e. Russell 2000 , Russell 2500 and Russell Midcap). The companies usually have higher return-on-equity and return-on-capital than the average company in those same indices. Using screening parameters such as price-to-earnings, relative return-on-equity and other financial ratios, ICM screens the universe of investments to identify potentially undervalued securities. They further narrow the list of potential investments through traditional fundamental security analysis.For their Large Cap Value strategy, ICM seeks to identify companies that are well-capitalized with sustainable competitive advantages and strong management teams. Using various screening parameters, they seek to identify potentially undervalued securities. ICM further narrows the list of potential investments through traditional fundamental security analysis. Investment are chosen once ICM is convinced the securities are undervalued and after they have attempted to discover a positive inflection point in the company's business momentum. ICM's primary focus is to confirm the competitive position of the company and that it is sufficiently undervalued based on historical valuation parameters, given their projected estimates for earnings and free-cash-flow.
