Our Office

Expanded Portfolio Options

One deep value equity strategy expressed three ways.

Classic Value

A tax-efficient, long-only portfolio of thirty (30) deep value U.S. equities and ADRs in the tradition of Benjamin Graham and Warren Buffett. We don’t short or hedge the portfolio, and we don’t borrow. The portfolio is always fully invested in the best opportunities. We don’t carry cash. When a position is sold, we rebalance to the next best position. The strategy is not managed with the objective of achieving a particular return relative to a benchmark index. However, to compare the performance of the strategy with a broad measure of market performance, reference may be made to the Russell 1000 Total Return Index over a three-to-five year horizon.

Risk Managed Value

Tax efficient, risk-managed exposure to our deep value strategy. We use a dynamic market-timing model to determine when to fully hedge the long portfolio by selling the index. Unhedged, the portfolio is 100 percent long. Hedged, the portfolio is 100 percent long, 100 percent short. The strategy is not managed with the objective of achieving a particular return relative to a benchmark index. However, to compare the performance of the strategy with a measure of performance, reference may be made to the HFRI EH: Fundamental Value Index over a over a three-to-five year horizon.

Enhanced Return Value

Tax efficient, hedge fund-like exposure to our deep value strategy. We lever the deep value stocks and use a dynamic market-timing model to determine when to partially hedge the portfolio by selling the index. Unhedged, the portfolio is 130 percent long. Hedged, the portfolio is 130 percent long, 100 percent short. The strategy is not managed with the objective of achieving a particular return relative to a benchmark index. However, to compare the performance of the strategy with a measure of performance, reference may be made to the HFRI EH: Fundamental Value Index over a over a three-to-five year horizon.
