Albert Grosman
The core belief is that the value of a corporation and the price of a stock can and do diverge under certain conditions but over time they converge. With patience, discipline and a long-term horizon we can profit from those situations where price lags valuation.
PNC Multi-Factor Small Cap Core Fund
Hitesh C. Patel
The ultimate goal is to be an active portfolio manager with limited tracking error and to make sure we take sufficient amount of risk so that our definition of active shares is significant but not uncorrelated to the benchmark.
