We believe small cap markets are inefficient and that a fundamental growth approach with a strong sell discipline provides the best opportunity to outperform in all market conditions. We seek to identify the emerging leaders across industries because investing in future market leaders enables us to provide our clients with access to best-of-class companies at an early point in their growth cycle and before widespread investor interest drives valuations upward. Finally, we feel that long term capital appreciation results from growth momentum in the underlying business, and not just in the stock.

Our objective is to outperform the Russell 2000® Growth Index and rank in the top half of the appropriate peer group each year.
