William Blair Small-Mid Cap Core Strategy
Why We Focus on Durability
Our high-quality investment approach focuses on durability—a company’s ability to sustain its business model and generate enduring growth.
The investment team seeks to invest in small- and mid-cap quality companies across a broad universe that can achieve more durable returns on capital than the market expects.
The strategy’s focus on the long term helps the investment team exploit inefficiencies derived from the short-term focus of other investors.
Attractive Risk/Return Profile
The strategy seeks to outperform over the long term with lower levels of risk.
SEEKING TO EXPLOIT MARKET INEFFICIENCIES
Companies whose long-term earnings power and/or business model durability is underappreciated due to most investors’ shorter-term focus
Companies exhibiting non-linear growth or facing a short-term issue that causes investors who have less extensive knowledge of the company to overreact
Companies that remain undiscovered because of minimal analyst coverage or low institutional ownership
