CIP believes that investing in companies with sustainable competitive advantages, durable business models, sound balance sheets, capable and sincere management, and that are trading at valuations that each team deems reasonable can, over time, provide attractive returns with less risk than the overall market. In all of their strategies they actively attempt to minimize business and valuation risk through our well-defined and consistent investment processes. Their investment processes are focused on absolute returns and avoiding large losses, which we believe is critical to wealth creation. Their strategies include small cap equity, mid cap equity, emerging markets equity and emerging markets small cap equity. For CIP's small and mid cap equity, they follow a three-step process: (1) screen all potential companies through unique sector factors; (2) analysis of company fundamentals; (3) valuation analysis. For their emerging markets and emerging markets small cap equity, they also have a process they follow: (1) screen using filters including minimum market cap and liquidity; (2) apply their sector factors - a set of qualitative judgments that target the business models CIP find most attractive; (3) fundamental analysis of company attributes; (4) valuation analysis.

Building customer relationships requires time, effort and sincerity. For Sysco, it began with a promise to assist foodservice operators in providing consumers with solutions for meals consumed away from home. Since the initial public offering in 1970, when sales were $115 million, Sysco has grown to $37 billion in sales for fiscal year 2010. Many solid customer relationships have been nurtured along the way, countless dining trends and meal alternatives have evolved, and today the decision to consume meals prepared away from home is as much necessity as choice. Since then, the industry it serves has expanded from $35 billion to more than $200 billion. Today, Sysco has sales and service relationships with approximately 400,000 customers and remains committed to helping them succeed in the foodservice industry and satisfy consumers' appetites. Operating from more than 180 locations throughout the United States, Canada and Ireland, Sysco's product lines are as diverse as the 45,000 employees who support its daily operations.
