Investment Approach

Investment Approach

SouthernSun U.S. Equity Fund

SouthernSun seeks to achieve the Fund’s investment objective by investing primarily in common stocks of small- to middle-capitalization U.S. companies that SouthernSun selects using a research-driven, value-oriented investment strategy. The Fund defines the investable universe of small- to middle-capitalization securities to include securities of issuers with a market capitalization at the time of purchase within the capitalization range of companies in the Russell 2500™ Index and/or the Russell Midcap Index during the most recent 12-month period (based on month-end data). The Fund typically invests in 20-40 companies SouthernSun believes are niche dominant and attractively valued with financial flexibility and uniquely fitted management teams. When selecting companies for investment, SouthernSun seeks opportunities that it believes have the following characteristics:

  • SouthernSun prefers companies that have strong internally generated discretionary cash flow and organic revenue growth
  • Management Capability: SouthernSun prefers management teams with measurable, transparent goals that are held accountable for performance. This applies to multiple levels of management from the CEO and CFO to less senior management
  • Niche Dominance: SouthernSun prefers companies that it believes exhibit competitive advantages through superior products, process controls and technologies
