Intelligence is more than an ability to learn. It is also the talent to discern important information and identify opportunities. From idea generation and proprietary research to portfolio construction and stock selection, Eagle managers employ keen insight and intelligent processes to build portfolios that seeks to add alpha over time.
There is no substitute for experience in the investment world, where lessons are taught and learned during every market cycle. Experience provides valuable knowledge into portfolio and stock-specific risk and enables our managers to construct portfolios that we hope limit downside risk.
Staying the course is often a managerís greatest challenge. At Eagle, we are committed to a long-term investment approach. We do not endeavor to chase short-term market favorites. This sometimes will hurt performance in strong bull markets, but we do not believe that chasing trends adds value over the long-term.
