U.S. Mid Cap Value is a bottom-up, low volatility strategy that invests in high-quality companies selling at a discount to fair value.

  • We believe investing in high-quality businesses selling at a discount to fair value will generate superior risk-adjusted returns over time.
  • We believe downside protection is critical to producing long-term outperformance.
