Active U.S. Equity Investments

Our Philosophy

Madison's U.S. Equity Team seeks superior returns, while striving to take less risk than the indices, by buying a select number of high-quality businesses at prices below their intrinsic value. The team approaches investing with the mindset that stocks are fractional ownership in a business, not pieces of paper for short-term speculation.

This philosophy results in concentrated, low-turnover portfolios (typically 25-40 holdings) whose high active share reflects our portfolio managers’ willingness to stand apart from market indices.
