Van Berkom & Associates (VBA) manages small-cap stock portfolios for large Canadian and U.S. pension funds, corporations, foundations and high-net worth clients on a segregated basis. The firm specializes in managing portfolios of U.S. and Canadian Small-Cap Equities. They look for companies with strong management with a significant ownership position, several years of consistent growth in revenues and earnings, a clearly defined strategy for long-term growth and conservative accounting methods. VBA also looks for companies with an important franchise, a significant market share, a global reach and a unique product or service. Companies should be gaining market share in a fragmented industry. Additional financial criteria include: projected long-term EPS growth greater than 15%, high return on equity, a strong balance sheet, adequate size and strong cash flow generation. While the firm generally prefers to invest in non-cyclical industries, they may also consider investments in companies that can grow their asset base in the resource and cyclical sectors and generate a reasonable return on invested capital and shareholders' equity.VBA's research process focuses on fundamental analysis. Part of their research effort considers the economic cycle and the identification of the secular trends of the future. Most of their efforts center on the identification and analysis of individual companies that are prepared for the economic and secular trends of the future.

By combining qualitative analysis with systematic risk management tools, Redwood Investments builds diversified equity portfolios appropriate to each client's objectives and risk return profile. The firm sells stocks primarily for two reasons: First, a deterioration of a stock's ranking confirmed by qualitative research. Second, when the firm's research uncovers company specific warning signs that could cause underperformance. Redwood manages US and International equity investment portfolios in the following primary strategies: Large-Cap Core, Large-Cap Core ESG/SRI, Large-Cap Growth, Small-Cap Growth, Small-Cap Growth ESG/SRI Equity, International Developed Markets Equity, ACWI ex-US, Global Equity, Global Small-Cap Equity, and International Small-Cap Equity.
