FTAM uses both fundamental and quantitative research as methods of analysis for their investment strategies; however, their investment approach does not fall into either the traditional fundamental or quantitative categories. The firm believes that while stock markets are efficient most of the time, behavioral anomalies can arise under certain circumstances, resulting in exploitable mispricing opportunities. FTAM’s strategies primarily invest in US listed companies and are a long only or a long/short strategy and may employ futures, ETFs and leverage. Their investment strategies include small-cap growth, small-cap value, small-cap core, behavioral small-cap equity, mid-cap value, micro-cap, low volatility behavioral equity market neutral and behavioral unconstrained equity.

Rice Hall James & Associates (RHJ) currently offers five core investment strategies: Mid Cap Equity; Small Cap Equity; Micro Cap Equity; Small Cap Opportunities (formerly Small Cap Ultra Growth Equity); and Micro Cap Opportunities (formerly Micro Cap Ultra Growth Equity).For their Mid Cap Equity, Small Cap Equity and Micro Cap Equity strategies, RHJ uses a company-specific approach that focuses on identifying stocks of growth companies that are selling at a discount to those companies’ projected earnings growth rates (GARP). The firm primarily invests in companies with price/earnings ratios that are lower than those companies’ three- to five- year projected earnings growth rates,RHJ's Small Cap Opportunities and Micro Cap Opportunities strategies seek to take advantage of the long-term appreciation potential of smaller companies by performing disciplined fundamental research combined with the patience of longer-term holding periods. They seek to achieve above average risk-adjusted performance by selecting companies with higher estimated earnings growth rates, higher returns on invested capital, and better sustainability characteristics than that of each strategy’s benchmark.
