IVA seeks long-term growth of capital by investing in a range of securities and asset classes from markets around the world. They employ a fundamental, bottom-up approach and will seek investments in mostly quality businesses with securities trading at what we believe to be a meaningful discount to our intrinsic value estimate. The size of the discount required and the position size is determined by the following criteria: quality of business, quality of balance sheet, ability for intrinsic value growth, quality of management, quality of capital allocation, liquidity/free float, dividend payout, and concentration/quality of shareholders. Additionally, IVA employs a flexible approach, which may include securities across all asset classes (equities, fixed income, gold, cash) and securities throughout the capitalization spectrum (small, mid, large caps).

PSGAM is an active, contrarian, medium- to long-term manager which believes they can reduce risk and optimize returns by only investing in high quality companies for which they always pay less than a fair price.The firm utilizes three criteria (Moat, Management and Margin of Safety) to identify investments, where 'moat' refers to a company's sustainable competitive advantage and determines the quality of their cash flow and dividends. They seek to invest in well managed companies with a track record of creating wealth for shareholders and are particularly attracted to companies where management holds significant equity in these businesses. Finally, they aim to pay significantly less than their estimate of fair value because it leads to a significant reduction in risk and also results in higher potential returns.PSGAM's combined research capabilities are shared throughout all portfolios.
