The firm offers investment strategies across many major asset classes, including but not limited to US large- and small/mid-cap, international, emerging markets and global equities. BAM employs a bottom-up investment approach, which focuses on strong business fundamentals and outstanding management teams and aims to reduce the inherent risk in investing. Their approach is designed to achieve lower volatility than the market averages. The firm's investment process is driven by limiting downside through a \"margin of safety\". They prefer to invest in companies that are capital rich, but which earn a high return on their financial capital. Companies that have a long history of good profitability, that generate high levels of free cash flow, are the basis of their investment style. BAM believes such businesses are the basis for most persistent long term outperformance in the capital markets, provided they are purchased at reasonable prices.

London Company offers multiple distinct investment strategies, all relatively concentrated with low annual turnover. Each strategy is created from the same, universal investment process. Their guiding principles for their investment philosophy include: focus on cash return on tangible capital, not earnings per share; the value of a company is determined by cash inflows and outflows discounted by the optimal cost of capital; and optimal diversification is essential to favorable investment results. The firm utilizes a differentiated conservative investment process focused on bottom up, fundamental analysis, utilizing a proprietary balance sheet optimization model and following a risk controlled sell discipline. They primarily seek the following characteristics: high return on capital, consistent free cash flow generation, predictability and stability, and conservative valuations. The firm screens for these primary characteristics and then the investment team will review and possibly seeks potential purchase candidates from the screen. The team will exercise further fundamental and qualitative analysis on selected candidates, in addition to estimating intrinsic values by performing an internal balance sheet optimization analysis, as well as adjusting to market other company assets that may provide further downside protection. The company's management, incentives, actions, capital allocation decisions and corporate governance structure to ascertain whether or not management's interests are aligned with shareholders are also evaluated by the investment team.
