Cardinal Capital Management engages in a buy and hold investment strategy that focuses on investments in domestic micro-cap, small-cap and SMID-cap value equities. The firm buys securities and holds them for a relatively long period of time, regardless of short-term factors such as fluctuations in the market or volatility of the stock price. From time to time, however, Cardinal may hold securities for significantly shorter periods of time. The firm searches for investment opportunities within inefficient market niches with emphasis on companies emerging from bankruptcy or corporate restructurings such as spin-offs. They seek to identify companies that are not yet well known or are underfollowed, and to develop opinions on out-of-favor companies businesses. Cardinal also investigates corporate events that often signal undervaluation by tracking large share repurchase activity, significant insider buying and announcements that companies are pursuing strategic alternatives.

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.
