BCM evaluates the economic and investment environment to identify the most attractive companies for investment and desired market exposure. Their approach is primarily one of fundamental analysis in evaluating securities. Among the individual company factors considered in evaluating securities are past and prospective earnings and dividends, cash flow, return on equity and invested capital, asset value, and debt/equity ratio. Industry factors are also considered as part of the fundamental analysis, including competitive position versus peer groups worldwide, product cycles, barriers to entry, and global supply & demand conditions. Country factors include macroeconomic conditions, along with government, regulatory and cultural influences for international securities. Valuation analysis is utilized for securities to make a judgment whether the security is a superior investment value in both an absolute sense and relative to alternative rates of return in the financial markets on a risk adjusted basis. BCM utilizes financial newspapers, magazines, and periodicals to keep abreast of information of a general nature. The investment strategy employed by the firm generally involves establishing long term positions.

Investment Counselors of Maryland (ICM) offers clients value investment solutions across the market-cap spectrum. In doing so, the firm utilizes two distinct investment processes. Both approaches employ a value-oriented investment method with a focus on fundamental analysis. ICM attempts to measure the value of a security by looking at economic and financial factors including the overall economy, industry conditions, and the financial condition and management of the company itself, to determine if the company is underpriced or overpriced. These two strategies include: Small Cap, SMID Cap & Mid-Cap Value and Large Cap Value.In selecting investments for their Small Cap, SMID Cap & Mid-Cap Value strategies, ICM seeks to invest in companies that they estimate to be undervalued that also possess leading market share positions, shareholder-oriented management teams, and strong balance sheets and cash flow ratios. Usually, the shares of the companies they buy are selling at a price-to-earnings ratio below the average price-to-earnings ratio of the stocks in the broad capitalization-specific indices (i.e. Russell 2000 , Russell 2500 and Russell Midcap). The companies usually have higher return-on-equity and return-on-capital than the average company in those same indices. Using screening parameters such as price-to-earnings, relative return-on-equity and other financial ratios, ICM screens the universe of investments to identify potentially undervalued securities. They further narrow the list of potential investments through traditional fundamental security analysis.For their Large Cap Value strategy, ICM seeks to identify companies that are well-capitalized with sustainable competitive advantages and strong management teams. Using various screening parameters, they seek to identify potentially undervalued securities. ICM further narrows the list of potential investments through traditional fundamental security analysis. Investment are chosen once ICM is convinced the securities are undervalued and after they have attempted to discover a positive inflection point in the company's business momentum. ICM's primary focus is to confirm the competitive position of the company and that it is sufficiently undervalued based on historical valuation parameters, given their projected estimates for earnings and free-cash-flow.
