Small capitalization equity markets are inefficient. This provides the opportunity to utilize a fundamental research approach to identify superior companies trading at a discount to intrinsic value.
In the context of value investing, we feel it is important to delineate between less innovative and more innovative sectors and industries.

We seek to neutralize relative benchmark risk to isolate stock selection as the primary source of alpha, mitigating the difficulty of consistently predicting market, sector, and industry direction while delivering high active share.
