Small Cap Value

Strategy & Objective

Strategy Description
The Small Cap Value strategy has a successful track record dating back more than 25 years. The goal of the strategy is to exploit market mispricings that result from Wall Street’s limited coverage of small-cap stocks. We seek to capitalize on these opportunities by applying a consistent investment process centered on a balanced assessment of return and risk. Our focus is on small cap companies with sustainable cash flows and strong balance sheets whose stocks appear undervalued relative to their tangible assets and long-term normal earnings power. Portfolio construction is based on rigorous, independent research and bottom-up security selection.
 

What to Expect

  • Exposure to small capitalization, undervalued equities
  • Price-to-normal earnings lower than the benchmark
  • Active management unconstrained by the benchmark
  • Controlled asset level that preserves the integrity of the investment process
  • Thoroughly researched ideas vetted by an experienced team of 20 investment analysts
