Atlanta Capital offers investment advisory services in a variety of equity, fixed income and mixed-asset strategies. In-depth fundamental analysis is the primary basis for their investment decision making process. Atlanta Capital invests principally in traditional equity (common stocks and equivalents) and debt securities. The firm seeks to achieve above-average long-term risk adjusted returns through emphasis on high quality equity or debt instruments they believe have unrecognized value or investment potential. For equities, high quality is generally measured by a company's demonstrated history of consistent growth and stability in earnings. For debt instruments, high quality typically relates to the probability of repayment (credit risk) and the predictability of when principal repayment will occur (stability of cash flow). Atlanta Capital operates with three distinct investment teams, Growth Equity, Core Equity and Fixed Income, each leveraging a central investment philosophy.

BCM evaluates the economic and investment environment to identify the most attractive companies for investment and desired market exposure. Their approach is primarily one of fundamental analysis in evaluating securities. Among the individual company factors considered in evaluating securities are past and prospective earnings and dividends, cash flow, return on equity and invested capital, asset value, and debt/equity ratio. Industry factors are also considered as part of the fundamental analysis, including competitive position versus peer groups worldwide, product cycles, barriers to entry, and global supply & demand conditions. Country factors include macroeconomic conditions, along with government, regulatory and cultural influences for international securities. Valuation analysis is utilized for securities to make a judgment whether the security is a superior investment value in both an absolute sense and relative to alternative rates of return in the financial markets on a risk adjusted basis. BCM utilizes financial newspapers, magazines, and periodicals to keep abreast of information of a general nature. The investment strategy employed by the firm generally involves establishing long term positions.
