DuPont Capital Management's (DCM) primary investment strategies are value-based. The firm's equity products include both fundamental and quantitative (or \"structured\") strategies. Product vehicles include separate accounts and, for certain strategies, commingled funds. Within private equity, both separate accounts and fund-of-funds products are offered.DCM's overall global equity investment approach is based on their belief that markets are inefficient because investors tend to overreact to short-term events, causing stock prices to deviate from a company's underlying business fundamentals. The firm seeks consistent risk-adjusted returns from these mispricings by systematically identifying companies that they believe are undervalued relative to their medium- to long-term earnings power and sustainable growth rate.The firm's equity strategies combine quantitative methods and fundamental research to identify investment opportunities in various markets. Their strategies include EAFE Equity Fundamental, Global Equity Fundamental, Emerging Markets, Small Cap, Mid Cap, Large Cap, Structured US Market Neutral and Large Cap Structured Equity.DCM's fixed income strategies use disciplined, value-based analysis directed at actively managing duration, yield curve exposure, sector allocation, country analysis and security selection. The strategies include Core, Core Plus, High Yield, Emerging Markets Debt, and Stable Value.DCM also seeks to provide enhanced risk-adjusted returns by constructing a diversified portfolio of private equity investments. The firm looks for investment opportunities that exhibit one or more of the following: clear value proposition; strong manager qualifications; and aligned interests between managers and investors.

Martingale Asset Management invests primarily in equity securities, in some circumstances, they also invest in other types of securities. In seeking to remain fully invested in equities at all times, the firm may invest in derivatives in certain strategies, such as stock index futures, options on stock indexes and similar instruments. Martingale Asset Management manages equity portfolios in core and style mandates large and small, as well as in 130/30, low volatility, and long/short mandates. They offer strategies across the market capitalization spectrum from mega- cap to small cap, including core, growth and value mandates. The firm's portfolios emphasize securities perceived to be undervalued, while underweighting (or shorting) securities perceived to be overvalued. Portfolios are rebalanced with a focus on selling or reducing positions in stocks that have become less attractive in terms of their valuation and/or risk properties, and buying stocks that are perceived to have more upside potential or more favorable diversification characteristics. This insight-driven portfolio rebalancing process typically leads to an average holding period of about six months to three years, depending upon the strategy.
