RRAM employ a highly disciplined, proprietary investment approach which they refer to as \"Absolute Value.\" The strategy incorporates the most proven and enduring principles of value equity investing, with a specific avoidance of the pitfalls associated with the common Deep Value and Relative Value investment styles. The objective of this approach is to generate attractive, sustainable, low volatility returns over the long-term, with emphasis on minimizing downside portfolio risk. Their approach is based on four principal tenants: a focus on excellent companies trading at compelling prices; bottom-up portfolio construction; a focus on less efficient areas of the equity market; and risk aversion. RRAM's strategies include: Small Cap Value and Small-Mid Cap Value; Dividend All-Cap Value and Dividend All-Cap Value II; Long-Short Equity; and Focused Absolute Value.

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.
