The Global Small Cap strategy seeks to invest in companies with small market capitalizations that are located in both developed and emerging market countries, including the United States, and demonstrating accelerating growth.

  • Centers on the belief that accelerating growth in earnings and revenues, rather than the absolute level of growth, is more highly correlated to stock price performance.
  • Directs us to research different companies than other growth managers, as we do not require an absolute threshold of earnings or revenue growth.
  • Allows us to take advantage of both the normal price appreciation that results from a company's earnings growth and the market's re-rating of a company's price-to-earnings multiple.
