Capital World Global Investors (CWGI) is the investment adviser to the American Funds Group, a family of 30 funds marketed to individuals exclusively through financial advisers and other intermediaries. American Funds are also used as investment vehicles for 401ks, other retirement plans, variable annuities and 529 college savings plans. The funds have the following characteristics: (1) a long-term, value-oriented approach (2) long-established, global research (3) a multiple portfolio counselor system that combines teamwork with individual accountability (4) experienced, long-tenured investment professionals and (5) a commitment to low operating expenses, among the lowest in the fund industry. CWGI uses a Multiple Portfolio Counselor System. The assets of each fund are divided into smaller, more manageable portions. Each portion is managed by a portfolio counselor who operates autonomously, investing his or her portion as though it were an entire fund (subject to fund objectives and overall guidelines). Research analysts typically manage a segment as well, bringing their expertise directly to bear on the fund's results. Portfolio counselors are free to make their own decisions. As a fund's assets grow, new counselors can be added. Investment decisions are based on internal research. Equity research is comprehensive and bottom-up while at the same time constantly monitoring broader economic, political, currency and interest rate trends. Investment research is proprietary and used solely by CWGI portfolio managers.

JSP seeks to add value primarily through securities selection. They apply a rigorous fundamental research process to identify common stocks of companies that they believe have long-term capital appreciation potential and are expected to grow faster than the local economy. Securities are generally selected on the basis of their potential for long-term capital growth. Using a bottom-up approach , the portfolio managers seek to select securities they believe have large end market potential or dominance of a profitable niche market, superior business models, and strong free cash flow generation that are attractively priced compared to the intrinsic value of the securities. They also consider a company's operational efficiencies, management's plans for capital allocation, and the company's shareholder orientation. JSP generally pursues an investment strategy of long-term capital growth. In pursuing this strategy, the firm primarily recommends equity securities of US and non-US issuers, although they may recommend a variety of securities and they do not limit recommendations to a particular type of security.

London Company offers multiple distinct investment strategies, all relatively concentrated with low annual turnover. Each strategy is created from the same, universal investment process. Their guiding principles for their investment philosophy include: focus on cash return on tangible capital, not earnings per share; the value of a company is determined by cash inflows and outflows discounted by the optimal cost of capital; and optimal diversification is essential to favorable investment results. The firm utilizes a differentiated conservative investment process focused on bottom up, fundamental analysis, utilizing a proprietary balance sheet optimization model and following a risk controlled sell discipline. They primarily seek the following characteristics: high return on capital, consistent free cash flow generation, predictability and stability, and conservative valuations. The firm screens for these primary characteristics and then the investment team will review and possibly seeks potential purchase candidates from the screen. The team will exercise further fundamental and qualitative analysis on selected candidates, in addition to estimating intrinsic values by performing an internal balance sheet optimization analysis, as well as adjusting to market other company assets that may provide further downside protection. The company's management, incentives, actions, capital allocation decisions and corporate governance structure to ascertain whether or not management's interests are aligned with shareholders are also evaluated by the investment team.
