We believe that investors can earn a premium return in small to mid capitalization growth equities by identifying higher quality companies capable of growing through multiple business cycles. We seek to take advantage of the inefficient discovery process for small and mid-sized companies and other investors’ focus on near-term earnings.
Key Tenets of Our Style
High Quality Conservative Growth
• We seek to invest in companies with sustainable earnings growth, strong balance sheets and significant management ownership.
Patient, Long-Term Approach
• We have a long-term investment horizon which has historically resulted in a low portfolio turnover rate of approximately 20-30%.
• We build Small Cap portfolios consisting of 45 - 50 stocks and SMid Cap portfolios consisting of 40 - 60 stocks. Portfolios are invested in companies which we believe offer high-quality sustainable growth, diversified across economic sectors.
Consistent Returns with Low Volatility and Downside Protection
• We seek to provide attractive risk and reward characteristics relative to benchmarks and other Small or SMid capitalization growth managers.
