CADELAM is an active, conservative manager which follows a fundamental, bottom-up approach complemented by a top-down macroeconomic view. They are self-described opportunistic investment managers who emphasize flexibility and reactivity, and do not rely on benchmarking. They favor absolute performance over relative results.The firm invests primarily in equity, supplemented by fixed-income. They focus on Europe and Asia and their equity investments favor large-cap companies with low P/E ratios and dividend yields approaching fixed-income levels. Their bond portfolios aim for a short-average term length, as by their estimate the low yield of bonds does not justify a long-average term length. They also invest in money-market instruments.

Black Creek Investment Management seeks to provide capital growth over the long-term through investments in common equities. The firm offers both global and international (EAFE) management capabilities. They are neither \"growth\" nor \"value\" investors. Black Creek believes that to value a business, one must be able to judge the future growth of earnings (free cash flow) for that business; hence, growth and value are not independent of each other. The firm seeks to buy good businesses with high-quality management at fair or attractive prices. They invest in individual business ideas for a client's portfolio, and do not try to time markets, trade for short-term gains or alter the portfolio significantly for any particular economic or interest rate outlook. Blue Creek also refrains from taking sector views and bets, either by industry or geography. For certain clients, Black Creek may invest in or use derivative instruments. The derivatives that they may use include, but are not limited to, options, futures and forwards, for both hedging and non-hedging purposes. We may also use derivatives to add exposure to the asset classes in a client's portfolio if they consider them to be attractive.
