LSV Asset Management is a quantitative value equity manager that provides active investment management for institutional investors through the application of proprietary investment models. The firm's investment approach is based on the premise that superior long-term results can be achieved by systematically exploiting the judgmental biases and behavioral weaknesses that influence the decisions of many investors. LSV uses a strictly quantitative investment model to identify out-of-favor, undervalued stocks that have the potential for near-term appreciation. Their portfolios typically have a deep value orientation relative to the indices. Market timing is not part of LSV's process and portfolios are generally fully invested with cash levels usually below 2%.LSV selects individual securities using a bottom-up, quantitative approach. All of their investment strategies use the same approach with investments segmented into different market-cap ranges and/or geographic regions. The firm uses a proprietary investment model to rank a universe of stocks based on a combination of value and momentum factors that they believe are predictive of future stock returns. LSV then overlays strict risk controls that limit the over- or under-exposure of the portfolio to industry and sector concentrations. LSV limits exposures in individual securities to ensure the portfolios are broadly diversified. Portfolio turnover is approximately 30% for each strategy. LSV also offers socially responsible investment portfolios.

Iridian Asset Management is an independently owned, value-oriented investment management firm focused on active equity investment strategies for institutional investors, including foundations and endowments, corporate and public pension funds, sub-advised and Taft Hartley funds. As of September 30, 2012, assets under management totalled $7.7 billion in U.S. mid-cap, large-cap and small-cap equity strategies. Iridian was founded in 1996 by David Cohen and Harold Levy, two seasoned investment professionals who have worked side-by-side in the investment industry for over 20 years. Our unique "private business value" approach to investing, which drives our mid-cap and large-cap strategies, has its roots in their early investment careers, which encompassed direct experience in private equity, venture capital, distressed debt and bankruptcy takeovers. In analyzing investment opportunities, our founders learned the importance of focusing on cash-related metrics and in-depth, critical assessment of a company's management — two key factors that have been fundamental in shaping a shared and distinctive investment philosophy. In December 2009, the co-portfolio management team of Jordan D. Alexander and Stephen A. Friscia, Jr. joined Iridian to manage a Small-Cap Value strategy. Jordan and Stephen have worked together since 1998 and have co-managed small cap value strategies as a team since 2000. Today, Iridian is built around a collaborative team of experienced investment professionals managing a range of traditional investment strategies for institutional investors.
