Cedar Rock is an active, long-term manager which aims to achieve absolute returns with a strong capital preservation bias. They follow a long-only, buy-and-hold global equity strategy that seeks to minimize frictional costs and to defer capital gains by investing only in quoted companies they believe are capable of compounding in value indefinitely. In selecting companies appropriate for long-term investment, Cedar Rock follow strict bottom-up approach emphasizing quality, value and managerial character. They seek companies capable of sustaining high returns on capital without requiring financial leverage. To determine value, the firm weigh companies' free cash flow yields against long-term interest rates to determine value.

SII is an active, long-term manager which specializes in publicly traded non-US equity securities using a bottom-up value investment approach. The firm invests primarily in established markets. However, they may invest in emerging market securities and currencies. SII generally seeks to invest in a portfolio of equity securities that, in its opinion, possess fundamental value. They believe that securities with low market price to earnings, cash flow, asset value, sales ratios or dividends typically, but not necessarily, possess fundamental investment value. When allocating investments among geographic regions and individual countries, the prime determinant for the firm is the attraction of the individual security investments. Macroeconomic factors are considered as they affect individual companies. SII seeks to retain a reasonable diversification of investments across countries and industries and, will normally incur some exposure to foreign currencies.

Marathon-London's investment philosophy guides a focused team of individually accountable portfolio managers who apply the capital cycle approach to seek investment opportunities across the market. The firm's portfolios are very well diversified in terms of geography, sector and most importantly, individual stock risk - the last of these due to the larger than peer average number of individual holdings. The portfolio managers periodically review the major \"active\" portfolio positions such as the weighting of the portfolio relative to the weighting in the benchmark in terms of country, sector, size and other factors. Marathon-London's small, centralized and non-hierarchical structure facilitates open and frequent communication. Each portfolio manager makes his own independent investment decisions which are then combined into the strategy's overall portfolio. The firm employs a bottom-up approach to select stock, evaluating sectors and companies, complemented by country. They utilize a capital cycle approach to identify and target out-of-favor sectors, looking for profitability where competition is low. They also carry out interviews to assess the quality of a business, management incentives and the reinvestment rationale.
