PCM is a global and international value equity manager. The firm employs an active, unconstrained (all countries, industries and market caps), value-oriented investment strategy. They employ a proprietary five factor global valuation model that produces a ranking of countries from the most undervalued to the most overvalued since country and industry factors have influences on security prices. The investment team conducts detailed fundamental research on the companies identified by the valuation screens. PCM's research process is almost entirely driven by a world-wide search for undervalued common stocks of well-run companies with sustainable business models that are priced to provide their required rate of return. 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.

Edinburgh Partners is an active, long-term, value-oriented manager which utilizes fundamental research to identify and buy undervalued companies. They believe that a valuation-driven approach to security selection is the most reliable way to achieve superior absolute returns over the medium- to long-term and that cash and other liquid assets should be used as alternatives to equities when equity markets fail to generate attractively-valued opportunities.The firm's sector analysts generate ideas within their sectors, seeking opportunities across a range of markets using a contrarian and non-consensual approach. They research listed companies, using valuation techniques to find those with potential to provide absolute returns. They project earnings, cash flow and balance sheets for potential purchases at least five years into the future to determine the intrinsic value of companies. Securities are selected by the investment managers.Edinburgh Partners looks at risk in absolute terms, focusing their risk controls on the potential for an investment to lose money. As a result, their approach has sometimes been referred to as unconstrained.Corporate Governance and SRI assessments are an integral part of the firm's investment process.
