Reik & Co. employs an investment strategy referred to as \"Select Investor.\" It is an equity strategy based on creating capital through long-term investment in high quality companies. Company selection criteria include: significant family or inside ownership; a strong franchise; little or no long-term debt and little or no institutional ownership. Portfolios are constructed with concentrated positions and are subject to greater performance and volatility than broader market averages.

HFR manages stock and bond portfolios according to the \"Prudent Investor Rule\", the time-tested diversified investment philosophy required of fiduciaries. Their stock portfolios typically include 35-40 stocks of financially strong, well-established companies that are very liquid, or sellable, and trade frequently on major market exchanges. Stock holdings are diversified across market sectors or broad industry categories. The firm doesn't attempt to beat the market in the short-term as they believe that a short-term focus often increases portfolio volatility and exposure to speculative trends. Rather than pursuing or adding to stock holdings in strongly performing market sectors, (quantifiable by increased monthly trading activity), HFR typically looks to pare back on stock exposure in apparent momentum-driven areas, to the extent that any of their holdings are participating in speculative growth phases. The firm's founder - Bret Reilly - actively manages the clients accounts, makes the security selections and trading decisions. HFR do not have multiple stock portfolio strategies and typically include investment grade bonds and money market instruments. They use mutual funds for smaller client accounts when they believe that sufficient diversification can't be practically and economically reached using individual securities.

Gruss Capital Management's (GCM) investment objective is to achieve absolute returns while preserving investor capital. The firm seeks to meet this objective by investing opportunistically in global markets using a combination of event-driven investment strategies. These event-driven strategies typically involve investing in opportunities created by corporate actions, regulatory/legislative events and market dislocations, in each case, where inefficiencies, mispricings and catalysts allow for attractive risk-adjusted returns. GCM utilizes investments in equities, bonds, loans, options, credit default swaps and other instruments. They seek to manage risk by utilizing adequate diversification and liquidity while attempting to hedge unwanted market risk by employing credit default swaps, out-of-the-money options, futures, ETFs and other instruments.
