William Blair Small-Mid Cap Growth 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.
Quality Growth Companies
The investment team seeks to invest in small- and mid-cap companies that can sustain a higher level of growth for a longer period of time 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
Traditional Quality Growth
Companies whose growth is faster and/or more durable than the market appreciates due to most investors’ shorter-term focus
Fallen Quality Growth
Companies exhibiting non-linear growth or facing a short-term issue that causes investors who have less extensive knowledge of the company to overreact
Undiscovered Quality Growth
Companies that remain undiscovered because of minimal analyst coverage or low institutional ownership
