TGA's investment philosophy and approach are based on three tenets: value, patience and bottom-up selection. By combining time-proven fundamental analysis with original research, the investment team searches for companies that meet their criteria of quality and valuation. When choosing equity investments for the strategies, the investment manager applies a bottom-up, value-oriented, long-term approach, focusing on the market price of a company's securities relative to the firm's evaluation of the company's long-term earnings, asset value and cash flow potential. The managers then construct individual portfolios within established parameters for the mandate as well as diversification based in the research results. Portfolio managers continually review portfolios to assess sector and industry risk exposure in response to changing market conditions.

LSV Asset Management is a quantitative value equity manager that provides active investment management for institutional investors through the application of proprietary investment models. The firm's investment approach is based on the premise that superior long-term results can be achieved by systematically exploiting the judgmental biases and behavioral weaknesses that influence the decisions of many investors. LSV uses a strictly quantitative investment model to identify out-of-favor (undervalued) stocks that have the potential for near-term appreciation. Their portfolios typically have a deep value orientation relative to the indices. Market timing is not part of LSV's process and portfolios are generally fully invested with cash levels usually below 2 percent. LSV selects individual securities using a bottom-up, quantitative approach. All of their investment strategies use the same approach with investments segmented into different market-cap ranges and/or geographic regions. Portfolio turnover is approximately 30 percent for each strategy. LSV also offers socially responsible investment portfolios and has a strict policy against using soft dollars.

Their research is focused on developing both a top-down view of broader market performance and a bottom-up outlook for individual securities.

They rely on research generated in-house which is tailored to the precise needs of our investment professionals.
