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.

Riverbridge Partners offers growth-oriented investment services by investing in equity securities which they believe can achieve sustainable high returns on invested capital over the long-term. They focus on companies that are building their earnings power and intrinsic value over long periods of time. The firm invests in high-quality growth companies that demonstrate the ability to sustain strong secular earnings growth, regardless of overall economic conditions. Riverbridge Partners generally invests in growth equity securities of companies of any size, including small- and mid-cap companies. All portfolios are aligned to a model portfolio. As a result, dispersion between accounts is relatively small. They concentrate on outperforming their portfolio benchmarks over longer periods of time. Portfolio turnover is generally less than 30% annually. Portfolios generally seek to remain fully invested at all times; cash is a residual of Riverbridge's investment process. The firm may customize portfolios to meet the client's capital appreciation and income needs. Customized portfolios may be diversified across asset classes (stocks, bonds, cash, etc.). Riverbridge Partners' fixed income investment strategy focuses on investment grade fixed income securities.
