EdgePoint Investment Group seeks to buy growth companies at value prices. The firm makes long-term investments viewing stock as an ownership interest in a company and seeking to acquire these ownership stakes at prices below their assessment of their true worth. EdgePoint Investment Group focuses on companies with strong competitive positions, defendable barriers to entry and long-term growth prospects that are run by competent management teams. These holdings generally reflect their views looking out more than five years. EdgePoint Investment Group buy good, undervalued businesses and hold them until the market fully recognizes their potential. They sell a security for one of two reasons. First, if their thesis about the company is deemed no longer valid. If the firm can no longer stand behind their thesis, they can no longer stand behind an ownership interest in the business and the position is sold. Second, there's a constant culling process whereby they continuously strive to upgrade the quality of their portfolios with better ideas. For fixed income investments, EdgePoint Investment Group looks for securities that provide an attractive return through coupon payments and/or capital appreciation while focusing on the borrower's (or bond issuer's) ability to meet its debt obligations through the payment of periodic coupons and the return of the original principal at maturity. EdgePoint Investment Group can invest in all forms of corporate debt including senior secured bonds, subordinated debentures and convertibles. Sovereign governments, provincials and asset-backed securities are also available to them if the opportunity arises.

Since 1967, Beutel Goodman has specialized in applying a value approach to the management of domestic and global equity, balanced and fixed income mandates for institutional and individual investors. Cash flow analysis forms the foundation for both equity and fixed income analysis and valuation. For the fixed income side strong free cash flows facilitates debt repayment and safety of principal. For the equity side strong free cash flows provide the financial flexibility to support organic growth and profitability, make strategic acquisitions, buy back shares and pay dividends. Beutel Goodman's in-depth, and bottom up investment style leads to investments in strong companies with less cyclicality for fixed income mandates and more value upside for equity mandates.
