“Value” drives everything we do at MAP. Our approach is based on the belief that investing in a diversified, global portfolio of high-quality, temporarily undervalued stocks can lead to long-term, successful investing through numerous market cycles.
We contend that the market often has short term inefficiencies and will price valuable company stocks at a discount. MAP can exploit these periodic, bargain-price situations that have not been recognized by the majority of other investors. Over time, it is anticipated that the prices will rise to reflect the true value of a company. In addition, MAP is benchmark agnostic, thus the composition of a benchmark does not influence portfolio construction. We believe that letting a benchmark influence the decision-making process can hinder long-term success. The goal is to build a portfolio that capitalizes on our successful investment process, deep intellectual capital and experienced portfolio team – instead of simply reflecting the characteristics of an index.
