KEELEY Funds Value Strategy

Value Approach

A Focus on Restructuring-Driven Change

Our distinctive approach focuses on companies that share these key characteristics:

  • Restructuring / Change Catalyst

    We analyze companies in the midst of major change or transformation to uncover catalysts for value creation.

  • Complexity / Lack of Coverage

    Complex stories with many moving parts are difficult to evaluate, leaving a void in Wall Street coverage.

  • Attractive Valuation

    Lack of research coverage and positive attention fuel investor uncertainty and neglect, creating market inefficiencies.

  • Within our investment universe, we use bottom-up analysis to identify companies with strong business models and solid growth potential.
