Similar to how a private equity or strategic buyer may seek investment opportunities, the Small/Mid Cap Value Equity strategy maintains a disciplined focus on free cash flow metrics, high-quality growing business models, and companies we believe can grow earnings in a broad variety of macroeconomic environments. Our focus is on the long-term drivers of shareholder value; the type of value a proprietor would attempt to build in a closely held venture.

Characteristics, holdings and sector weightings are subject to change and should not be considered as investment recommendations. There is no guarantee that holding securities with relatively high (or low) price-to-earnings, price-to-book, or price-to-cash flow will cause the portfolio to outperform its benchmark or index.
Region and currency weights, account quality ratings or duration ranges with regard to any particular client account may vary based on any investment restrictions applicable to the account.
International securities and ADRs may be subject to market/currency fluctuations, investment risks, and other risks involving foreign economic, political, monetary, taxation, auditing and/or legal factors. There may be additional risks associated with international investments. These risks are magnified in emerging markets. International investing may not be suitable for everyone.
Back-tested and simulated performance results have several inherent limitations. Unlike an actual performance record, back-tested and simulated results do not represent actual performance (i.e. the results of actual trading) and are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. There are frequently sharp differences between back-tested and simulated performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular account, product, or strategy. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or the implementation of any specific investment strategy, which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of back-tested and simulated results and all of which can adversely affect actual results.
Indices are unmanaged and not available for direct investment.
