Large Cap Value

The Cambiar Large Cap Value strategy is the firm's oldest strategy and utilizes a team approach to investing. Each member of the seven person investment team is then charged with finding the most compelling investment opportunities within their assigned sectors/industries. 

The team conducts a rigorous internal research process to identify companies that we believe possess an attractive risk-return profile – we believe the risk of capital loss is modest while the potential for outsized return is high.  Such scenarios are the result of price sensitivity at the point of purchase, as well as a non-consensus assessment of the true economic value of the company over a forward 1-2 year timeframe.

  • Portfolio was incepted in 1973.

  • The portfolio holds between 35-45 stocks.

  • Sector weights based on bottom-up fundamental, not index construction.

  • Invests in companies with a market cap larger than $5 billion.
