BTIM Inc.'s primary equity investment strategies include: All Cap, Large-Cap Core, Large-Cap Growth, Large-Cap Value, Mid-Cap, Small-Mid Cap, Small-Cap, and Developed International Large-Cap. Their Mixed-Asset strategies consist of US Balanced, Global Balanced, and Global Asset Allocation. BTIM Inc.'s equity strategies seek to invest in a well diversified set of companies meeting three standards: higher than average financial quality, more sustainable business models, and reasonable valuation. Style focused equity strategies include growth, value, and core (or style neutral). Growth strategies seek to invest in securities of companies that have demonstrated above-average historical earnings growth, and continue to have attractive growth prospects. Value strategies seek companies whose securities are trading at attractive valuations relative to their sector peers, the market, and/or own history. Core strategies may include investments in both growth and value securities while adhering to the three standards noted in the above paragraph. Market capitalization equity strategies focus on securities of Large Cap, Mid Cap, SMID Cap, or Small Cap companies. A mixed-asset strategy may change its allocation between equity and debt securities, or among particular equity or fixed income approaches, depending on economic and market conditions. Fixed income management focuses on maintaining a portfolio of debt securities, cash, or other instruments that pay either a fixed or a floating rate of interest. Income strategies may include debt securities that provide tax-advantaged interest payments, such as municipal bonds, or those that include higher credit risk. Income strategies may include debt securities issued by the United States Government, as well as its Agencies. Fixed income management is a component of balanced and asset allocation strategies. BTIM Inc. seeks to add value through duration management, yield curve strategies, sector rotation, and individual security selection.
