Passionate Advocates for Small-Cap

As passionate advocates for this asset class, we believe that including a meaningful allocation to small-cap can improve most investors’ outcomes. In our experience, this wonderfully diverse universe of companies provides perennial opportunities to invest in attractively valued stocks as many small-caps are lightly researched or misunderstood.

Our ongoing commitment to this asset class has allowed us to identify certain persistent historical tendencies for small-caps' long-term performance that are often overlooked by many other investors. As long-time residents in the small-cap space, we have recognized certain patterns and are happy to share the insights we have uncovered through specializing in this realm of the investment world for multiple decades.
