U.S. Small Cap Value is a bottom-up, fundamental strategy that invests in leading businesses selling at a discount to fair value.

  • We believe that leading businesses selling at a discount to fair value have the potential to generate excess returns.
  • We focus on stocks offering a high probability of modest outperformance rather than a low probability of high outperformance.
