Active Equity Investing
Since 1999, the ASB Large Cap Core Equity strategy has implemented a disciplined, repeatable process in an effort to exceed the returns of the S&P 500 with less risk. Through our institutional platform, we invest in a concentrated portfolio of diversified companies that we believe offer an opportunity to outperform over a full market cycle.
All investments contain risk of underperformance and loss. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.
