Cantillon Capital Management seeks long term capital appreciation by investing in a globally diversified portfolio of equities and equity-related securities, which includes securities of emerging markets issues which are listed or traded on recognized exchanges. The firm believes that there is a direct relationship between a company's long term sustainable financial productivity (SFP) and its intrinsic value. Financial productivity is a measure of the profits a company generates for a given level of investment in the business. Cantillon strives to generate positive rates of return by investing in companies which generate high levels of SFP and whose listed securities trade at a discount to their intrinsic value. Cantillon Capital Management’s investments primarily include equities and equity-related securities which are listed or traded on a recognized exchange, which includes common and preferred stock, exchange-traded options on equities, equity warrants and convertible securities in all countries, including emerging markets issues. The firm may also invest in corporate and government fixed-income securities (investment grade, high yield and not rated), spot and forward currency contracts, reverse repurchase agreements for efficient portfolio management, and ETFs, that offer exposure to industries, regions or emerging stock markets.
