Strategy & Objective

The Fund seeks capital appreciation using a disciplined, value-oriented investment process. Through our consistent process and independent research, we own small cap companies that we believe are undervalued relative to their tangible assets, have sustainable cash flow and potential for improving business performance. The Fund is well diversified and seeks to own small U.S. based companies that offer the best combination of value and potential for price appreciation. The Fund typically holds 50-100 securities and generally invests in small companies with a market capitalization ranging from $100 million to $4 billion.

  • Employs timeless investing principles and independent thinking to drive investment process
  • Exploits excessive investor reaction often exhibited in the stocks of small size companies
  • Capitalizes on limited analyst coverage and the potential return opportunity of small companies

Mutual fund investing involves risk. Principal loss is possible.  Investing in smaller and/or newer companies involves greater risks than those associated with investing in larger companies, such as business risk, significant stock price fluctuations and illiquidity. The Fund may invest in ETFs, which are subject to additional risks that do not apply to conventional mutual funds, including the risks that the market price of an ETF’s shares may trade at a discount to its net asset value ("NAV"), an active secondary trading market may not develop or be maintained, or trading may be halted by the exchange in which they trade, which may impact a Fund’s ability to sell its shares.  The Fund may invest in foreign securities which involve greater volatility and political, economic and currency risks and differences in accounting methods.

Diversification does not assure a profit nor protect against loss in a declining market.
