About NWQ

NWQ seeks to provide superior risk-adjusted returns through an analyst-driven research process that focuses on undervalued companies that provide attractive risk/reward and potential for downside protection and that possess catalysts to help unlock their value.

The firm’s active approach to equity investing utilizes a corporate finance-oriented, cash flow-focused (as opposed to reported earnings) discipline that allows them to identify potential investments trading at attractive absolute valuations. Their approach to uncovering value emphasizes independent, original, bottom-up fundamental research. They seek to exploit disparities between investor perception and underlying fundamentals in the capital markets. Moreover, NWQ employs a conservative approach to risk-adjusted performance by remaining disciplined in their approach, while weighing downside risk. Overall, the firm’s conservative and disciplined approach helps to identify companies offering superior prospects, while selling at reasonable multiples.
