Fund Objective: 

The Fund aims to achieve capital appreciation by investing in a concentrated portfolio of small-cap U.S. equities of above average growth, sound management, and favourable competitive positioning. Through our disciplined, bottom-up investment process, we strive to exploit market inefficiencies in the small-cap universe.

The Fund focuses on careful analysis of business fundamentals relative to the price of the security.  The goal is to identify differentiated companies where it is possible to form a non-consensus view.

The Fund invests primarily in the common stock of U.S. companies with the intent of owning them for a multi-year period.
