Investment Objective

The Broadview Opportunity Fund seeks capital appreciation.

Investment Strategy

The Broadview Opportunity Fund invests in stocks of companies of all sizes, but primarily invests in smaller capitalization United States companies, that have substantial capital appreciation potential. The Fund considers smaller capitalization companies to be those within the range of the Russell 2000® Index at time of purchase (as of 12/31/18 up to $6.2 billion). The investment team seeks to purchase equity of businesses that are selling at what it believes are substantial discounts to prices that accurately reflect their future earnings prospects.

Investment Process

Pure bottom-up ideas are internally generated.  The investment team exploits industry experience and contacts with suppliers, customers and competitors to identify companies that might be candidates for the portfolio.  If a company meets most, but not all of our criteria, they are added to an extensive list of similar companies which are continuously monitored.

Broadview uses Five Pillar Analysis to determine if a company will be added to the portfolio.  The five points are as follows:

             Highly recurring revenue, return on investment capital, controllable destiny
             Strategic value, barriers to entry, difficult to duplicate
             Focus on 2-3 year time horizon, we own companies don’t rent stocks, across all industries
             History of successful strategic decisions, effective use of free cash flow, aligned with shareholders
             Substantial discount at purchase, risk control, requires patience and discipline
Companies meeting all Five Pillars may be added to the portfolio.  While not an automatic sell, any company in the portfolio can be removed for violation of any of the Five Pillars.
