TGA’s investment philosophy and approach are based on three tenets: value, patience and bottom-up selection. By combining time-proven fundamental analysis with original research, the investment team searches for companies that meet their criteria of quality and valuation. When choosing equity investments for the strategies, the investment manager applies a bottom-up, value-oriented, long-term approach, focusing on the market price of a company’s securities relative to the firm’s evaluation of the company’s long-term earnings, asset value and cash flow potential. The managers then construct individual portfolios within established parameters for the mandate as well as diversification based in the research results. Portfolio managers continually review portfolios to assess sector and industry risk exposure in response to changing market conditions.
