Since 1967, Beutel Goodman has specialized in applying a value approach to the management of domestic and global equity, balanced and fixed income mandates for institutional and individual investors. Cash flow analysis forms the foundation for both equity and fixed income analysis and valuation. For the fixed income side strong free cash flows facilitates debt repayment and safety of principal. For the equity side strong free cash flows provide the financial flexibility to support organic growth and profitability, make strategic acquisitions, buy back shares and pay dividends. Beutel Goodman's in-depth, and bottom up investment style leads to investments in strong companies with less cyclicality for fixed income mandates and more value upside for equity mandates.

Leith Wheeler Investment Counsel Ltd.'s (LWIC) value-oriented Canadian Equity investment strategy seeks to invest companies that have some competitive advantage or franchise that will preserve the company’s ability to deliver attractive returns on capital. The firm realizes that the market usually recognizes and fully values these types of companies so they focus on finding solid businesses which may not be fully recognized by the market. Often these businesses may be under some temporary cloud or competitive pressure such that the franchise value is not clear to the market or the business lacks the speculative appeal or fad of the moment. LWIC takes meaningful positions in these companies and their culture that allows them to be patient until their investment thesis unfoldsLWIC's fixed income strategies emphasize consistency of returns and safety of capital by investing in notes and bonds issued by the Canadian federal and provincial governments and by corporations. As in the management of their equity portfolios, the firm focuses on the long-term outlook for interest rates and structures portfolios accordingly. A key component of our credit selection process is establishing a disciplined outlook for specific sectors of the fixed income credit market. Within each sector LWIC evaluates each individual security based on a rigorous bottom up analysis of the fundamentals of the business and the industry in which it operates.

Building customer relationships requires time, effort and sincerity. For Sysco, it began with a promise to assist foodservice operators in providing consumers with solutions for meals consumed away from home. Since the initial public offering in 1970, when sales were $115 million, Sysco has grown to $37 billion in sales for fiscal year 2010. Many solid customer relationships have been nurtured along the way, countless dining trends and meal alternatives have evolved, and today the decision to consume meals prepared away from home is as much necessity as choice. Since then, the industry it serves has expanded from $35 billion to more than $200 billion. Today, Sysco has sales and service relationships with approximately 400,000 customers and remains committed to helping them succeed in the foodservice industry and satisfy consumers' appetites. Operating from more than 180 locations throughout the United States, Canada and Ireland, Sysco's product lines are as diverse as the 45,000 employees who support its daily operations. They include not only the ingredients needed to prepare meals, but also numerous ancillary preparation and serving items. As a result, Sysco can make a difference in its customers' lives and the success of their businesses
