BAMCO's investment strategy is to invest in growth businesses for capital appreciation potential. Each portfolio manager's ability to choose appropriate investments for an account has a significant impact on their ability to achieve an account's investment objective. The firm's investment professionals are focused on fundamental analyses of businesses. Their primary objective is to understand the key drivers of growth and profitability of each company in which they invest. They analyze the following financial information: income statement, cash flow statement, balance sheet, turnover and ROE metrics, unit economics, and other company-specific data. This information is filtered through their valuation models, which they use to extrapolate long-term trends. They have meetings with the management which is a critical element of the firm's research process.

Brown Advisory provides investment management services to individuals and institutions through a variety of investment vehicles including mutual funds, separate accounts and private funds. Different factors, including account type and size, may be used to determine which vehicle is most appropriate for the client. Their investment approach is based on the belief that low-turnover, concentrated portfolios derived from sound bottom-up fundamental research provide an opportunity for attractive performance results over time. The firm constructs balanced portfolios for private clients, non-profit organizations and institutions depending on the needs of the client. They offer access to a wide range of investment opportunities and asset classes, including international equities, emerging market equities, global fixed income, high-yield fixed income, private equity, commodities, hedge funds and real estate. Brown Advisory's equity investment strategies employ a bottom-up, fundamental research approach to the identification, examination and eventual selection of securities for their portfolios. Their fixed income process seeks to invest in bonds with capital appreciation potential that is not related to the general movement of interest rates.

MW LLP utilizes a range of systematic and fundamental investment strategies to broaden the sources of potential alpha generation, diversify risk and deliver superior, risk-adjusted returns to investors. They are disciplined with regard to setting limits on the capacity of any strategy and manage long/short equity hedge funds with either a regional or a sector-specific focus. The firm combines fundamental investing with systematic and quantitative strategies to deliver returns from a range of investment solutions. MW LLP's managers are flexible in their investment style and invest in companies across market-caps in Europe (including Eastern Europe), shifting between growth and value stocks. They also switch from net long to net short positions, and use futures and options to hedge. Their investment strategy relies on TOPS, a proprietary alpha-capture system where a computer-based mathematical model is used to gather and select investment ideas. They utilize TOPS to monitor, capture, measure and optimize a flow of sell-side investment ideas, constructing liquid portfolios with a conservative use of gearing.
