Investment Objective

The primary objective of the strategy is the achievement of long-term growth of capital primarily through investment in equity securities of high-quality US-based mid- to large-capitalization companies.

Investment Approach

The Guardian U.S. All Cap Growth strategy employs a fundamental, bottom-up research approach. The sub-advisor, Alta Capital Management LLC, believes companies with high free cash flow growth yield superior investment returns with nominal risk. The tenets of our process encompass the following:

• Quality factors are key to long-term alpha generation
• Growth in earnings and free cash flow (FCF) fuels higher stock prices
• Sustainability of earnings growth, profitability and competitive advantages drives future cash flow generation
• Superior FCF growth with lower EPS (earnings per share) variability leads to more resilient, risk-adjusted outcomes

The result is a concentrated portfolio of 30 to 35 US mid- and large-capitalization companies.
