Investment Style

chart
  • Seeks to invest primarily in common stocks of small companies with a market capitalization of less than $4 billion at the time of purchase
  • Research intensive approach focuses on finding high quality companies that are believed to have improving business models, solid management teams, sustainable growth potential and favorable industry dynamics
  • Quality companies are those that possess the following traits:
    • Consistent earnings
    • Reasonable valuations
    • Low debt levels
    • Solid free cash flows
    • Strong management with a history of good capital allocation
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 foreign securities which carry the associated risks of economic and political instability, market liquidity, currency volatility and differences in accounting standards. The Fund may focus its investments in specific sectors and therefore be susceptible to positive or negative developments in the sector which may increase the Fund's volatility and magnify its effects on total return. 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.
