ACR Alpine Capital Research (ACR) seeks to measure the intrinsic 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 and its related securities are underpriced (indicating it may be a good time to buy) or overpriced (indicating it may be time to sell). This is a fundamental investment approach that does not attempt to anticipate market movements.The firm's Equity Quality Return (EQR Strategy) employs bottom-up fundamental analysis to identify undervalued stocks. EQR invests in equity securities with the idea of holding them in the client's account for a year or more. EQR invests primarily in common stocks with corporate headquarters in the US and Canada. It is invests in companies of any size including large, mid and small capitalization, but tends to focus on large-cap stocks.For their Fixed Income High Grade Strategy (FHG), ACR purchases fixed income instruments they deem to be of high quality. The strategy is designed to protect capital from loss of principal and interest by investing only in very high grade fixed income securities, (b) to provide cash flow and liquidity via interest income, regular maturities and price stability and (c) to obtain the highest after-tax yield possible without sacrificing credit quality standards. The maximum duration for this strategy is 10 years.The ACR Multi-Strategy Quality Return Funds invest in a range of securities including public securities and private securities. The funds typically pursue their investment objectives by investing their assets in equity securities, debt securities, derivative securities, cash and cash equivalents. The funds may also invest in other types of financing instruments such as convertible bonds and preferred stocks, ADRs, EDRs, and REITs. ACR may use a short selling strategy for a portion of the funds' assets, including two general types of short positions: directional and arbitrage.ACR invests the ACR International Quality Return (IQR) Fund's assets primarily in equity securities of companies located outside of the US. The fund invests mainly in common stock, preferred stock, ADRs, EDRs and GDRs. When fully invested, the fund's portfolio generally consists of approximately 20 holdings not limited by security type, issuer size or geographic location.
