BAM employs a value-focused global investment approach that seeks to preserve clients' capital while providing long-term superior investment returns. The firm offers investment strategies across many major asset classes, including but not limited to US large- and small/mid-cap, international, emerging markets and global equities. BAM employs a bottom-up investment approach, which focuses on strong business fundamentals and outstanding management teams and aims to reduce the inherent risk in investing. Their approach is designed to achieve lower volatility than the market averages. The firm's investment process is driven by limiting downside through a \"margin of safety\". They prefer to invest in companies that are capital rich, but which earn a high return on their financial capital. Companies that have a long history of good profitability, that generate high levels of free cash flow, are the basis of their investment style. BAM believes such businesses are the basis for most persistent long term outperformance in the capital markets, provided they are purchased at reasonable prices.

Fenimore Asset Management (FAM) is a long-term value investor seeks to preserve their clients' assets and maximize total return on capital through investments that offer the potential for long-term growth. The firm looks for high-quality companies with very good growth potential that can be purchased at discount prices. FAM conducts extensive, independent research that includes creating detailed, 5-year models for each stock holding and analyzing balance sheets, cash flow statements and income statements. The firm's research team visits every company in which they invest at least annually and thoroughly analyzes the company, its industry and its competition. FAM's average stock holding period of 5 years or more helps to reduce capital gains. When selecting investments, FAM looks for companies: (1) with understandable businesses, competitive advantages and high profit margins (2) that have little or no debt and high free cash flow and that deploy capital wisely (3) with honest, superior management teams that have strong track records of increasing their companies' economic value and (4) that are trading at a discount to the firm's estimate of their true economic value. FAM invests only in companies that can be expected to achieve a 12% to 15% annualized return rate over 5 to 6 years. The firm discounts expected future cash flows to determine present value and applies a worst case value baseline of no growth and a discount of at least 10%. They also evaluate historical average multiples including: price/earnings, price/cash flow and price/sales.When investing in fixed income securities, FAM considers a number of factors such as price, coupon, yield-to-maturity, and duration. The credit rating from third party rating agencies is considered, however they rely on their fundamental analysis in determining their view of the quality of the issuer. In addition, FAM reviews the terms of the fixed income security, including such facets as subordination, default, sinking fund, and early redemption provisions. Fixed income instruments are reviewed on a continual basis to ensure that the underlying issuers are constantly capable of interest and principle repayment.
