SEG offers a long-only equity management program that utilizes fundamental analysis to select stocks they believe will provide better than market returns over a complete market cycle. Money market reserves may comprise 0 to 50 percent of the account, but generally range from 0 to 20 percent, depending on market conditions. SEG generally limits their portfolio of securities to less than 40 than stocks in each account. SEG employs eight primary investment strategies. Their investment strategies are generally driven by a research-intensive, fundamental bottom-up process and draw upon a centralized research department. These strategies include: Small-Mid Cap /Long-Only, US Core, Concentrated Opportunistic, US Long/Short, International Long/Short, International Long-Only, Global Long-Only, and Private Equity. SEG obtains exposure to particular issuers or securities for their private funds (and may for individual clients) through various types of derivatives transactions, including swaps and contracts for differences. In addition, they may hedge exposure to currency fluctuations for foreign securities owned by the private funds by entering into currency forward or option transactions.

Mairs & Power offers investment management services for equity, fixed income and balanced portfolios. Investment portfolios are tailored to meet the needs and objectives of individual clients. In selecting equity securities, the firm utilizes a bottom up approach focusing on company fundamentals, rather than taking \"market bets\". The Investment Committee monitors specific companies and industry trends and meets regularly to assess their findings. For fixed income, their objective is to provide regular current income and a low level of risk. Mairs & Power typically seeks to keep portfolios reasonably fully invested, maintain modest portfolio turnover rates and limit risk by investing in a laddered schedule of maturities. For balanced portfolio, they utilize the same common stock approach as the equity strategy, but may place a greater emphasis on dividend-paying stocks. Preference is given to investment grade fixed income securities. Their objective is to provide capital growth, current income and preservation of capital.
