Unwavering Focus

On value-driven investing
across domestic small
and mid cap companies.

We Believe a focus on high quality companies that are temporarily trading below historic averages, peer groups and private market values, with strong management and an identifiable catalyst for value realization provides us with alpha generating opportunities. By building portfolios of diversified, high quality stocks we believe we are rewarded for our stock selection, conviction and patience.
