Invest in Undervalued SMID Cap Companies in Pursuit of Long-Term Goals

Generate consistent excess returns over a full market cycle.

Investing in companies with sustainable and durable competitive advantages may help investors achieve their desired long-term investment goals. The strategy identifies companies that have low earning variability which we believe demonstrates that they are likely to survive recessions and are likely to thrive on the recoveries that follow.

Utilize a Disciplined, Research-Backed Process to Drive Returns
