EdgePoint Investment Group seeks to buy growth companies at value prices. The firm makes long-term investments viewing stock as an ownership interest in a company and seeking to acquire these ownership stakes at prices below their assessment of their true worth. EdgePoint Investment Group focuses on companies with strong competitive positions, defendable barriers to entry and long-term growth prospects that are run by competent management teams. These holdings generally reflect their views looking out more than five years. EdgePoint Investment Group buy good, undervalued businesses and hold them until the market fully recognizes their potential. They sell a security for one of two reasons. First, if their thesis about the company is deemed no longer valid. If the firm can no longer stand behind their thesis, they can no longer stand behind an ownership interest in the business and the position is sold. Second, there's a constant culling process whereby they continuously strive to upgrade the quality of their portfolios with better ideas. For fixed income investments, EdgePoint Investment Group looks for securities that provide an attractive return through coupon payments and/or capital appreciation while focusing on the borrower's (or bond issuer's) ability to meet its debt obligations through the payment of periodic coupons and the return of the original principal at maturity. EdgePoint Investment Group can invest in all forms of corporate debt including senior secured bonds, subordinated debentures and convertibles. Sovereign governments, provincials and asset-backed securities are also available to them if the opportunity arises.
