Touchstone Small Cap Value Fund
Sub-Advised by: LMCG Investments LLC


The Fund seeks long-term capital growth by investing primarily in stocks of small-cap companies.

Investment Style

  • Utilizes a classic value-driven fundamental investment process
  • Seeks to identify companies believed to be selling at a discount to their intrinsic value
  • Employs five valuation screens that seek to identify attractively priced securities
  • Conducts in-depth research and analysis on the securities that pass the valuation screens in an effort to identify leading companies selling at attractive valuations
  • Examines financial statements and assesses the company's management team, competitive strategy and its current market position
The Fund invests in equities which are subject to market volatility and loss. The Fund invests in stocks of small-cap companies, which may be subject to more erratic market movements than stocks of larger, more established companies. The Fund invests in value stocks which may not appreciate in value as anticipated or may experience a decline in value. Current and future portfolio holdings are subject to risk. The advisor engages the sub-advisor to manage the Fund's portfolio; the sub-advisor's judgment may impact the Fund's performance.
