Copper Rock Global Small Cap

We believe using a blend of quantitative and fundamental analyses to identify companies with superior growth relative to their peers will lead to consistent levels of outperformance. 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. This dynamic strategy combined with the following attributes generates strong and consistent long-term performance, and differentiates us from our competitors.

Our objective is to outperform the MSCI World Small Cap Index and to rank in the top half of the peer group on an annual basis.
