Polaris Capital Management (PCM) is a global and international value equity manager. The firm employs an unconstrained pure value equity selection process that is characterized as an active, all-cap (multi-cap) global investment strategy. Portfolio construction attempts to balance the capitalization ranges subject to the firm’s value discipline. When constructing portfolios, PCM seeks to achieve better than benchmark returns with lower than benchmark risk where risk is measured as the beta of inception-to-date returns relative to the benchmark of the strategy. To achieve this risk objective portfolios are constructed to diversify the portfolio in at least 15 industry groups, 15 countries and across market capitalizations. There is no restriction on country or industry weightings. Portfolios will have exposure to emerging markets with a maximum of 25% portfolio weighting. Typically, global or international portfolios hold 75 or 50 securities respectively. Portfolios are equally weighted at purchase, and may grow to approximately 5% of portfolio assets before being trimmed. Most investments are held for three to five years resulting in low portfolio turnover. In the portfolio construction process, PCM seeks to include a broad range of market-caps in the portfolio but does not attempt to override the results of the bottom-up investment process.
