PCM is a global and international value equity manager. The firm employs an active, unconstrained (all countries, industries and market caps), value-oriented investment strategy. They employ a proprietary five factor global valuation model that produces a ranking of countries from the most undervalued to the most overvalued since country and industry factors have influences on security prices. The investment team conducts detailed fundamental research on the companies identified by the valuation screens. PCM's research process is almost entirely driven by a world-wide search for undervalued common stocks of well-run companies with sustainable business models that are priced to provide their required rate of return. Most investments are held for three to five years resulting in low portfolio turnover. In the portfolio construction process, PCM seeks to include a broad range of market-caps in the portfolio but does not attempt to override the results of the bottom-up investment process.
