BFM utilizes fixed-income strategies that are actively managed, model or index based. Actively managed fixed-income mandates generally employ an active investment style that emphasizes rotation among different types of debt on a relative value basis, specific security selection, quantitative analysis of each security and the portfolio as a whole and intensive credit analysis and review. They utilize a risk-controlled, systematic process for portfolio construction and alpha generation. Alpha sources may include security selection, duration and yield curve positioning, industry rotation, asset allocation, and currency positioning. BFM's equity platform includes a broad range of products that vary according to investment style (active, scientific and passive management), market-cap (small-, mid-, small/mid-, large- and all-cap), and geography (global, international and regional). The product range may also include sector funds, long-only and long-short portfolios, as well as products that combine different strategies to create balanced and asset allocation portfolios. For cash management portfolios, the investment process emphasizes safety and liquidity over yield. Their alternative mandates focus on sourcing and managing high-alpha investments with lower correlation to public markets and developing a holistic approach to address client needs in alternatives investing.


Ariel utilizes a bottom-up, fundamental analysis to select quality company stocks. The firm has three investment strategy approaches offered: traditional value, deep value and global. They use different research processes for each strategies. For traditional value, they monitor a proprietary watch list which is comprised of current, former and potential new investments. The research process of deep value begins with the screening of companies on size, valuation and industry parameters. Lastly, for global strategies, they first seek to reduce the risk of large investment losses by quantitatively and qualitatively identifying and eliminating businesses that have the highest propensity to fail, based on their judgment. The firm's investment decisions will primarily be derived from bottom-up fundamental research and stock picking and are made by the portfolio manager.
