Boston Partners Global Investors has three divisions: Boston Partners, Weiss Peck & Greer Partners (WPG), and Redwood.Bostons' investment process is grounded in bottom-up fundamental analysis. The firm employs an efficient and repeatable investment process designed to identify companies with: attractive valuations, sound business fundamentals and improving business momentum. The firm's investment strategies include several long/short equity products which include selling securities short. The securities sold short may not be considered \"value\" securities but are considered to be overvalued by Boston Partners based on their quantitative screening and fundamental security analysis. For certain long/short portfolios, they use single name security swaps, negotiated on a bilateral basis and not cleared through a central clearing facility. Swaps are used to provide short exposure in markets where physical shorting is not allowed or to obtain exposure to a security to manage margin requirements more efficiently.WPG's Small-Cap Value investment approach employs proprietary fundamental research that seeks to identify undervalued companies in the least-covered areas of the small-cap market to achieve exceptional long-term returns. Boston Partners targets superior small-cap companies that are situated for positive change and are trading at attractive valuations. The investment team seeks to exploit market anomalies through both traditional value investments and special situations. WPG invests in a company when it possesses a near-term positive catalyst; its upside potential significantly outweighs its downside risk; and when it is selling at prices well below long-term valuation averages.The WPG Partners Micro Cap Opportunities Equity strategy seeks to add value through security selection as its primary source of outperformance. The strategy seeks to identify attractive micro cap stocks by applying a bottom-up, fundamental investment approach. Positions are primarily driven by the perceived underlying risk/reward relationship. Through its fundamental research, in most cases, sectors with strong catalysts, compelling valuations and the most favorable risk/reward characteristics are overweighed, while those with deteriorating industry fundamentals or those viewed as overvalued on an historical basis are underweighted;Redwood is an absolute return strategy that seeks to provide equity-like returns with substantially lower volatility than the broad market. The strategy is designed to achieve three specific investment goals: (1) provide equity like returns over a market cycle (2) provide those returns at approximately half the volatility of the broad market and (3) provide material downside protection.

Vulcan Value Partners (VVP) seeks to achieve long-term capital appreciation by investing primarily in publicly-traded companies that are believed to be both undervalued and possessing a sustainable competitive advantage. The firm uses fundamental bottom-up analysis to identify companies believed to have sustainable competitive advantages allowing them to produce free cash flow and earn superior cash returns on capital. Vulcan seeks to invest in businesses that are run by ethical, capable, shareholder-oriented management teams that also are good operators and understand the importance of capital allocation. Vulcan then focuses their analysis on the difference between the price of the company's securities and their estimate of the intrinsic value of the securities. An investment becomes more attractive as the difference between value over price expands and the margin of safety increases. Vulcan generally invests larger amounts of a client's assets in companies determined to have lower price-to-value ratios and reduce capital committed to companies determined to have higher price-to-value ratios.

Glenview Capital Management (GCM) manages the Glenview Funds, the Opportunity Funds, the GCM Equity Funds, and the Little Arbor Funds. The Glenview Funds employ a long/short strategy that invests in equity and fixed income securities using a bottom-up, fundamental research process. The Glenview Funds have position size and gross exposure guidelines. The Opportunity Funds employ a purely opportunistic investment approach, and have no limits as to the number or size of positions, security types or industry concentration. The GCM Equity Funds employ a long-only strategy that invests in the equity securities of companies with market-cap greater than $10 billion. The GCM Equity Funds are limited life funds that are being offered to existing investors and their affiliates in the Glenview Funds and the Opportunity Funds. The GCM Equity Funds have position size and exposure guidelines and do not expect to incur leverage in order to enhance investments. GCM also manages GCM Investment Partners LP, a private fund that is open to qualified employees of GCM and certain other persons. The Fund allocates its capital to individual funds in the Glenview Fund family and the Opportunity Fund family.^GCM's investment process focuses on deep, fundamental research and individual security selection primarily within equity and credit-oriented strategies. The firm employs a GARP investment approach that focuses on companies in stable industries, with recurring revenue streams or entrenched market positions. GCM may also focus on contrarian investments (cyclical or company specific). They often combine GARP and contrarian investing when a steady growth business emerges within a company as the dominant economic force over a more challenged business unit. GCM invests in stored or hidden value situations, where excess balance sheet capacity may be used to accelerate returns or where contractual rights or startup operations show no present value but may be significant drivers of value tomorrow. ^In addition to long equity investments, GCM commits significant capital to short equity positions. They look for companies whose industries face cyclical, transitory or secular headwinds, whose competitive position is likely to erode over the near- to medium-term, and companies whose liquidity profile will potentially create equity value impairment or cause future issuance of additional equity at lower prices. GCM may also maintain short positions in equity index futures or other index products to reduce net market risk. GCM also engages in long and short credit positions with emphasis on business or asset stability over growth. GCM may seek to reduce the risk through other hedges that protect the overall portfolio of the Funds, including interest rates, foreign currencies or sovereign, corporate or asset-backed credit spreads.
