Investment Strategies

Madison focuses on core growth strategies through bottom-up fundamental research analysis to identify stocks of businesses that are selling at what it believes are substantial discounts to prices that accurately reflect their future earnings prospects. Madison conducts extensive research on each prospective investment using a five pillar analysis process to evaluate companies as potential investments for the portfolio. Investments that meet most of the criteria are added to a list of similar companies to be monitored by Madison.  Companies meeting all five pillars may be added to the portfolio. The five pillars of the analysis are: (1) strong business traits, (2) defendable market niche, (3) attractive growth potential, (4) capable management, and (5) discount to private market value.
