U.S. Value Equity Team
Quality Fundamental Focus
We believe a focus on quality companies that are temporarily trading below historic averages, peer groups, and private market values, provides us with alpha-generating opportunities.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe that pricing inefficiencies exist in small-cap stocks such that quality companies can temporarily trade below their intrinsic value. This valuation discrepancy tends to be rationalized over time. By maintaining a strong valuation discipline, with a strict focus on quality companies, we believe we are rewarded for our stock selection, conviction, and patience.
Strong investment timing has been a key factor to our success. Our focus is to nimbly identify profitable entry and exit points of quality companies.
WHY THIS MATTERS
Research has shown that historically, small-cap value stocks are among the best-performing asset classes.
Both value and small company risk premiums have amply rewarded investors over the long term. Our view is that most investors can benefit from the attractive long-term capital appreciation potential that a strategic allocation to small-cap value equities has offered. We believe that investors are well served and can improve their long-term prospects by investing with an active manager in this space.
