Boston Partners primarily provides advice using a value style approach for large-cap equity, mid-cap equity, small-cap equity, long/short equity, alpha extension, global equity, and international equity. Their investment process is grounded in bottom-up fundamental analysis. The firm employs an efficient and repeatable investment process designed to identify companies with: attractive valuations, sound business fundamentals and improving business momentum. Boston Partners' investment strategies include several long/short equity products which include selling securities short. The securities sold short may not be considered \"value\" securities but are considered to be overvalued by Boston Partners on its quantitative screening and fundamental security analysis. For certain long/short portfolios, they use single name security swaps, negotiated on a bilateral basis and not cleared through a central clearing facility. Swaps are used to provide short exposure in markets where physical shorting is not allowed or to obtain exposure to a security to manage margin requirements more efficiently.
