Copper Rock Capital Partners, LLC

"Copper Rock Capital Partners LLC provides specialized equity management for pension and profit-sharing plans, institutional investors, and mutual funds. The Boston-based firm was founded in 2005."

Copper Rock believes that the small and mid cap markets are inefficient and therefore provide significant opportunity to generate alpha for our clients. We apply rigorous fundamental research combined with quantitative analysis in conjunction with a rigid sell discipline to identify companies with superior growth relative to their peers. We believe our ability to identify these top-performing companies before widespread investor recognition drives valuations upwards, leads to consistent levels of out-performance over time.
