Paradigm Capital Management's (PCM) investment approach is based on the belief that the equity markets are inefficient and that investor psychology and sentiment have a significant impact on short-term pricing. The firm believes that extensive academic research supports the firm's opinion that these phenomena are especially prevalent in the smaller end of the market capitalization spectrum. PCM conducts disciplined fundamental research to identify mispriced small-cap equities whose short-term pricing does not accurately reflect the true earning potential of the company. PCM looks for what they feel are high-quality companies that are trading at discounts to their assessment of intrinsic value. The firm offers 7 strategies which are primarily offered to clients as investable products: Micro-Cap, Small-Cap, SMid-Cap, Value, Growth & Income, High Net Worth and Defensive.

Dalton, Greiner, Hartman, Maher & Co. (DGHM) is a fundamental, value-driven, equity investment manager that employs a disciplined approach to purchase high quality companies at compelling valuations. The firm combines the use of quantitative tools with rigorous fundamental analysis to generate excess returns with managed risk. DGHM emphasizes intensive security analysis and strict valuation disciplines in structuring portfolios.DGHM's investment process begins by defining the universe of potential equity securities based on the market-cap guidelines for each product. The firm uses a proprietary multi-factor model that ranks their universe of equity securities by sector on valuation, profitability and capital efficiency. They then use a fundamental approach based on evaluation of historical financial data, regulatory filings, press releases, transcripts and company meetings to determine which securities warrant further due diligence. Once a security is selected DGHM develops an internal financial model and conducts valuation analysis. The firm will sell a stock if their multi-factor model indicated that an acceptable trade-off of valuation and profitability no longer exists, if the company's fundamentals are deteriorating or if the stock consistently underperforms its peer group.
