  • CORE EQUITY
  • DIVERSIFIED
  • EQUALLY WEIGHTED
  • QUANTITATIVE
  • SMART BETA
  • TAX EFFICIENT
PHILOSOPHY
The Firm has developed a proprietary investment strategy which is based on selecting companies displaying a quality business model undergoing a persistent steady improvement. Companies undergoing such change:

  • Are underappreciated by the market.
  • Have the ability to generate persistent outperformance.

The Firm’s slow and steady investment discipline strives to create both short-term and long-term value.  Improving operating metrics which deliver profitability and balance sheet improvements will ultimately be rewarded by the market over time for the following reasons:

  • The Firm’s research indicates that companies which can effectively implement such operating improvements have the opportunity to not only create short term but also long term value for shareholders.
  • Improvements in balance sheet and capital structure are keys to identifying investment opportunities which can create and maintain long term shareholder value.
FACTORS UTILIZED TO CONSTRUCT THE PORTFOLIOS
The Firm’s investment model utilizes single and broad fundamental factors to select the stocks of companies for the Resource Capital 60 Long Portfolio. The objective of utilizing the single and broad fundamental factors is to uncover companies that are improving operationally, that are valued fairly and that have measurable liquidity. The Firm utilizes the single and broad fundamental factors to determine the following:

  • Identify whether a company has a solid business model from the perspective of key success metrics such as revenues, margins, and cash generation.
  • Identify positive changes in a company’s income statement which drive balance sheet and capitalization structure improvements.
PORTFOLIO CONSTRUCTION PROCESS
A total universe comprised of approximately 3500+ companies is filtered to eliminate non-qualifying securities. The remaining companies are ranked and sorted within narrow GICS Sectors utilizing single and broad factors. Based upon the model ranking process, the stock of a company is either included or excluded from the Resource Capital 60 Long Model Portfolio. Sector exposure is broadly diversified and equally weighted. Individual securities are equally weighted as well.
WHY INVEST IN THE RESOURCE CAPITAL STRATEGY?
The Firm has developed a unique value investment strategy that attempts to include operationally improving companies in a value portfolio before the market effectively identifies these operational improvements.  The security identification and portfolio construction processes employed by the Firm make the strategy unlike other quantitative and fundamental approaches.  In a dynamic economy and marketplace, there are always a select few companies which are able to improve their operational efficiencies and thereby drive improvements in their capital position. When the market identifies these improvements, these companies may be poised to exceed expectations and thus have an opportunity to outperform the market.
KEY DIFFERENTIATORS
The Firm’s strategy is really simple:

  • Good companies getting better.

The Firm’s strategy is a unique and disciplined way of identifying portfolio holdings:

  • The universe analysis and subsequent portfolio development and construction processes are deeply rooted in proprietary Cash Flow Analytics.

What the Firm’s strategy is not:

  • No Reliance on Optimization
  • Does not use Regression
  • Not another Value Momentum Anomaly

What the Firm’s strategy is:

  • Identifies persistent change that other market participants are slow to pick up on or perceive

Performance Disclosure:

The Resource Capital Equally Weighted Long 60 Value Model Portfolio Model Portfolio performance represents only the results of Resource Capital model portfolios. The model performance has inherent limitations. The returns shown are model results only and do not represent the results of actual trading of investor assets. Thus, the performance shown or discussed does not reflect the impact that material economic and market factors had or might have had on decision making if actual investor money had been managed. While model performance may have performed better than the benchmark for some or all of the periods shown, the performance during any other period may not have, and there is no assurance that model performance will perform better than the benchmark in the future. An investor's actual portfolio, composition and performance of the account may differ from those of the model portfolio due to differences in the timing and prices of trades, and the identity and weightings of securities holdings. Performance is calculated using a time-weighted rate of return using daily valuations and takes into account the reinvestment of dividends. Dividends are assumed to be paid at the ex-dividend date. Stocks are presumed added to, or deleted from, the model portfolio at the close of market on the day the change is made. The model performance reflects the deduction of a 1% advisory fee, but does not consider taxes and brokerage commissions, or other fees that investors may incur.

 

Benchmark Disclosure:

The benchmarks for the Resource Capital Equally Weighted Long 60 Value Model Portfolio are the Russell 1000 Total Return Index, the Russell 1000 Value total Return Index and the S&P 500 Total Return Index. The selected indices are not presented as appropriate benchmarks for the portfolios.  The benchmarks are presented for illustrative purposes only.  An index is an unmanaged, statistical composite and its return does not reflect payment of any brokerage commissions or fees an investor would pay to purchase the securities it represents. Such costs would lower performance. It is not possible to invest directly in an index. The benchmarks include a different number of securities and have different risk characteristics than the model portfolios. Past performance of the benchmark is no indication of future returns.
