1. Objective

    The International Smaller Companies Fund seeks capital appreciation.

  2. Investment Proposition

    Great companies can be so for different reasons. Some are driven by a vision to shape and transform industries. Some have unique skillsets to exploit emerging opportunities. Some simply operate at a superior level through distinctive culture or thoughtful stewardship. At the lower end of the market cap spectrum, many of these are often underappreciated, and even ignored, by the market given many narrowly focused and short-term driven participants. We focus on unearthing the most exceptional smaller international companies and, by harnessing the asymmetry inherent in equity markets, aim to capture the disproportionate impact of successful investments.
