Perkins is primarily a long-only equities value investment advisor. The firm's value-oriented approach is based on the belief that investing in a diversified portfolio of high-quality, yet undervalued stocks can lead to outperformance of a benchmark over time. Perkins believes that by conducting rigorous downside analysis before determining upside potential, they can identify companies with favorable reward-to-risk trade-offs over a full market cycle. Their investment strategies include: small cap value, mid cap value, large cap value, global value, non-US value, all cap value and value plus income. Perkins uses the same methods of analysis on all strategies. They employ a thorough bottom-up method of fundamental analysis. Perkins seeks high-quality companies with strong balance sheets, low debt ratios, financial flexibility, solid recurring free cash flows and committed and tenured management with significant insider ownership. The portfolios that Perkins manages are designed for long-term investors seeking an equity portfolio, including common stocks.

PCM is a global and international value equity manager. The firm employs an active, unconstrained (all countries, industries and market caps), value-oriented investment strategy. They employ a proprietary five factor global valuation model that produces a ranking of countries from the most undervalued to the most overvalued since country and industry factors have influences on security prices. The investment team conducts detailed fundamental research on the companies identified by the valuation screens. PCM's research process is almost entirely driven by a world-wide search for undervalued common stocks of well-run companies with sustainable business models that are priced to provide their required rate of return. Most investments are held for three to five years resulting in low portfolio turnover. In the portfolio construction process, PCM seeks to include a broad range of market-caps in the portfolio but does not attempt to override the results of the bottom-up investment process.
