YPO (Young Presidents’ Organization) connects people with successful young chief executives in a global network unlike any other. Founded in 1950 in New York City by a young president named Ray Hickok, the organization unites approximately 20,000 business leaders in more than 120 countries around a shared mission: Better Leaders Through Education and Idea Exchange. A great deal has changed since YPO’s founding but certain things have remained the same: the value of a peer network and trusted mentors, the importance of ongoing education, and the need for a “safe haven” where issues can be aired in an environment of confidentiality. Over the past six decades, YPO has maintained its core commitment to these ideals while embracing change with each successive generation of young business leaders.

Liberty Ridge focuses on domestic equities. Liberty Ridge Capital believes it adds the greatest value over all market cycles by consistently applying a time-tested, bottom-up stock selection process that combines the use of rigorous fundamental research with quantitative techniques. Liberty Ridge Capital seeks to select securities that offer the most attractive trade-off between valuation, near-term dynamics and long-term growth.They believe that superior investment results can be achieved by investing in companies that possess an attractive valuation relative to the broad market and peer group, display positive near-term business prospects and exhibit healthy long-term earnings growth potential. LibertyRidge employs a process that defines a manageable universe of stocks by utilizing proprietary quantitative screens to narrow their focus. Fundamental research further narrows the team's top investment candidates and then a portfolio is constructed based on process and account parameters.In seeking to identify attractive investment opportunities for the Focused, Large Cap, Mid-Cap and Small Cap Funds and the blend portion of the Strategic Small Company Fund, Liberty Ridge first creates a universe of companies whose current share price seems lower than their current or future worth. They consider factors like a company's earnings power vs. its current stock price, dividend income potential, its price-to-earnings ratio vs. similar companies, competitive advantages, like brand or trade name or market niche, management team, and current and future business prospects.Lastly, using their own fundamental research and a bottom-up approach to investing, Liberty Ridge identifies those companies which are currently out of market favor but have the potential to achieve significant appreciation as the marketplace recognizes their fundamental value.
